FELCI YACHTS -
Timeless Beauty with a Passion for Lightness
FELUCA, BLACKOALA and IKAIKA, three Felci yachts and exceptional examples of Italian design, are now for sale at WIND YACHTS. Designed exclusively for cruising, these yachts combine the speed, efficiency and handling typical of a racer with the comfort and functionality of state-of-the-art Mediterranean fast cruisers.
Founded in 1998 by Umberto Felci and Lorenzo Giovannozzi, Felci Yachts Design is now renowned for the international scope of its work.
The co-founders’ background in high-level competition, particularly Umberto Felci’s Olympic racing years, have underpinned and driven their development of highly successful and innovative solutions.

FELUCA - The Ultimate Bluewater Custom Sailing Yacht
Delivered in 2008 as the fourth in the Felci 71′ miniseries and completely built in Italy by the CN Yacht2000 shipyard (now ICE Yachts), FELUCA has been the most classic solution in terms of interior and deck design.
The external layout features a double cockpit, ample space for guests amidships and an efficient manoeuvring cockpit aft. Max Spar carbon mast is equipped with an in-boom mainsail furler.
Bespoke natural teak interior furnishings have brass details reminiscent of classic naval design.
A total of five cabins, each with its bathroom, make it possible to accommodate up to ten people overnight.
Three guest cabins, including the master, are at the forward, while the aft area, with independent access, includes two more cabins suitable for guests and crew.
The engine room is accessible from the galley with a solution carefully thought to be well inspectable in every part.
By motor, Feluca is powered by a Yanmar 260 hp which receives regular and accurate maintenance.

BLACKOALA - Superb Performance and Comfortable Navigation
Blackoala is the fifth example of the successful 71′ series penned by Umberto Felci. Also the last craft to be built at the former CN Yachts 2000 yard before it became ICE Yachts, she was delivered in 2008.
Thanks to a high tech, lightweight GRP-carbon composite construction, Blackoala delivers a superb mix of exhilarating performance and comfortable navigation in all sailing conditions.
Her sporty lines hug a deck plan with an open transom, double cockpit and dual access to the lower deck.
Blackoala’s bright, customised interiors accommodate six guests in three attractively-appointed cabins: an owner’s stateroom forward, two guest cabins that open into the saloon and a crew area aft that can also be used by guests.

IKAIKA - A Luxury One-Design Performance Cruiser
Built at Adria Sail and delivered in 2007 as a one-design performance cruiser, the first of the Felci yachts for sale embodies her owners’ strong brief for modernity and a high standard of customisation.
One of Felci Yachts’ rare raised saloons, her compact but powerfully-designed deckhouse offers plenty of light below decks, where the collaboration between Felci and architect Guido Boroli has produced a minimalist yet ultra-refined fit-out.
Ikaika’s interior layout is divided into two distinct guest areas. Her forward section is entirely taken up by the owners’ stateroom.
However, the space a few steps down from the saloon and accessible through a sitting area is given over to two independent suites.
Similarly, the separate guest area aft also features two single cabins, each with its own bathroom facilities. A sole twin cabin opens into the saloon.
In addition to her clean, practical sailing concept, Ikaika also offers her owners cutting-edge technology, including an All Spars mast and V boom, that promise both impressive performance and easy handling.
