Out-News = Tullio Abbate Sinks in Lake Iseo

The heavy rain which hit lake Iseo on Monday 24 August sank a Tullio Abbate twelve meter offshore style sport cruiser in thirty meters of water.  The sport cruiser was located in a yacht marina in Pisogne, on the North East part, and eventually had taken to much water in the back engine room part, to eventually sink.  It appears the bilge pumps where not working, and the cutting of the mooring lines accelerated the sinking.  Lake Iseo is one of five big lakes located on the Northern part of Italy, and also the birth place of status symbol boat builder Riva, with Sarnico located on the South Western tip of the lake.
The boat in the sinking appears to be a Tullio Abbate Offshore 42 S, which the famous Lake Como based builder launched in 1981 to a project designed by him.  The Tullio Abbate Offshore 42 S, was powered with twin engines totalling 500hp standard, and options up to 1000hp units, with these last giving top speeds up to forty knots.  The accommodation of the Offshore 42 S features a four berth accommodation interior with a forward double Vee shaped berth and two single sofa berths, including a galley and shower head upon entrance.  Tullio Abbate boats are always synonymous with an efficient and fast performing hulls, as the only 3.45 meter of beam in this model indicates.
