Flybridge Cruiser Ends Beached in Livorno Harbour

A nine meter flybridge cruiser ended up beached in Livorno on the morning of Sunday sixth November.  The flybridge cruiser reportedly lost power to both its engines with the wind pushing it on the beach.  The coast guard gave immediate assistance to the passengers onboard the flybridge cruiser taking them to safety.  Later in the day a rib tried to tow away the flybridge cruiser with no success. 
This beached flybridge cruiser is a Piantoni Ondazzurra 9.50 mt produced from 1985 to 1990, it was a project made in house by the Bergamo builder which had success in the eighties, and shared hull with the sports Onda Blu.  The Piantoni Ondazzurra offered a two cabins layout with single head and living and galley on the main deck, and was powered by twin Volvo 175hp with stern drives in the first year, and later units getting the 200hp, reaching speeds up to thirty knots.  Piantoni sold over one hundred units of the Ondazzurra and Onda Blu, which today is still a wanted used boat, due to the generous accommodation, sea worthy hull, and strong construction.
