Sarzana Flybridge Motor Cruiser Fire

In the late afternoon of December 14 at around 1700  hours a fire was seen going up in Amelia on the right side of the Magra river.  The fire involved a flybridge motor cruiser of about fourteen meters in length.  Fire extinguishing crews first from Spezia and then from Sarzana went immediately to extinguish the fire, which could also be seen from a afar.  No injuries and further damages have been reported.  
The boat in the fire is a Ferretti 44 Altura S produced from 1989 up to 92.  The Ferretti 44 Altura S in its time became a best seller for its timeless and modern lines, and three double cabins comfortable accommodation.  The model came as a redevelopment of the 44 Altura model launched in 1986 with a redesign of the super structure, and updated interior.  The 44 Altura S was designed by Antioco Pusceddu who designed all the Ferretti models up until 1990.  The Ferretti 44 Altura S sold in around forty units and was at the time only second in sales to the fifty plus sales of the 52 Altura S produced in more or less the same period with a similar design.  The 44 Altura S was replaced by the Giovanni Zuccon designed 45 Altura-145 model in 92.
