The New Grandezza 25S

I’m a big fan of the Italian Lakes.

I’ve holidayed a couple of times on Lake Garda, I’ve tested a boat on Lake Maggiorre, and I’ve bought a Riva on Lago d’Iseo.

But my favourite has to be Lake Como.

It’s stunningly beautiful, the water is clear, the villages are gorgeous and the people relaxed.

I recently had the pleasure of sourcing a boat for a client on Lake Como. The brief was to come up with a shortlist and then whittle it down to the most suitable boat.

Now, the workable size limit for Lake Como is 30ft. And really anything more than 25ft is a bit of a nuisance. That’s the size that the boat yards and marinas and boat houses and town quays are designed around. And it’s a prefect size for skipping across the closely-spaced waves on the rare days that the wind gets up.

It’s also not a place for a cruiser. Day boats and runabouts are the order of the day. Because a boat on Lake Como is for heading to lunch with friends, it’s for running errands and avoiding the narrow roads that are clogged with traffic, it’s for evening cruises to a restaurant for dinner with a glass of wine on the way. It’s not for sleeping on… there’s plenty of 5 star hotels and lakeside villas for that.

So the list was narrowed to some of the usual suspects… A Boston Whaler walkaround, a Regal or Monterey cuddy cabin, a Cobalt bowrider, or a modern but traditional Italian sportsboat like a Comitti or a Colombo.

A few decisions were quickly made…

A walkaround, whilst practical, didn’t have enough comfort or sociable seating for guests.

The American cuddies and bowriders have more comfort, but are surpassed in the styling department by the Italians.

But the Italians are all about style and sacrifice a lot of usability in the process – Like no easy walk-through transom access, no side decks and no step through screens – so you run the risk of looking like James Bond as you approach the harbour, but then making a complete berk of yourself
