Default Race boat grave yard

I picked this up off yachtforums. One of the guys there is building a big yacht in Italy. The person who is building it used to be a famous racer & took him to see some of the old boats kicking around behind his yacht building business.
I see a few future poker runners in the pile!

Power Marine is the boat that is toast. Turbos caught the hatch on fire and away she went. 1996 pole position champ even after fire. Isotta Fraschini 3 turbo motors

Benedetto is a 55ft V with a big wing and a loooong snout.

Fresh and clean (Spelta) Isotta Fraschini diesels.

Good boats in their day.

There isn't a link to a site, it was just the pictures you see here. Since I posted this, I have made contact with the guy who took the pictures. Anyone want to make a package deal offer on all the boats with me? I see a few poker runners there!
