Italy: All Set for First Official Testing of FB 252


In the midst of all the work at the docks, new yachts have just been launched: the waters of Livorno were host to preliminary technical trials for the 65-metre FB 252, where fittings, instruments, and on-board facilities were tested and technically inspected.

With boatyard staff, technical partners, and representatives of the owner all in attendance, the yacht scored positive results from the very first readings and met all technical requirements necessary for it to move on to official testing, now scheduled for late May, which is to designate the class of LRS boat registration.
