Next time I go to my dock, I'll try to find out a little more.

There was only the one little kid onboard at the time I took the photo.
I figured somebody on this board would have nailed it by now.

I think I would have preferred the anchor hatch to be located a little higher on the hull.

OK - I checked it out again on Friday.
It IS in fact a Tecnomar. Not sure what length, but by the designation on the side which read "TB18", I would guess somewhat over 54 foot, based on 18 meters.

Thats all I have. Sure is a sweet lookin boat.

It's Italian. They set them up usually with T-660 HP diesels with Arneson's and go around 65 MPH. Their main competitors are Magnum Marine and possibly Azimut. Also, cost a king's ransom I hear.

Anyway, I think it surely has big diesels in it. Abbate used to power his boats with 183-series MTUs but then steered towards MAN 2848, 2840 and 2842 series (anywhere between 680 and 1300hp.) Naturally, being a good Italian that he is, he also made a few boats with Isotta Fraschini and Seatek engines.
In other words....

A rig like that requires a change of lifestyle. Trade in the Ex for a Ferrari... Towing days are over!
