    I inherited this 32 foot boat. I was told it's a 1970's Sonny Levi design and it was imported from Italy.

    Can someone please tell me what this is? Thank you.

    It does look like Levi's hull, but I cannot recognize the boat. Resembles "A Speranziella", or even "Corsaro", but it is neither of them.

    Perhaps your best bet is to ask directly to Mr. Levi and his sons: http://www.leviboats.com/

    Cheers

    Thanks man I have been looking for days.

    If it helps all of the switches are labeled in Italian.

    It means that the boat might have been built by an Italian boatyard. ;)

    Another possibility could be to contact the Italian Coast Guard in Catania (that's what CT stands for), explain that you've bought this boat and would like to have more info. Being a 32 ft, it might have been listed in their registries: http://www.guardiacostiera.it/capitanerieonline/index.cfm?id=7
    Good luck! :)

    Thank you for your help. The CT is there because it was once registered in Connecticut. Actually that makes the boat a 1968. I'm thinking the same thing, maybe an Italian boatyard. I would give an arm to figure this boat out.

    I think I figured it out. Hull lines are spot on, bathroom is exact. I think the round portholes were added later.

    Come to find out it's not a Triana, there are the slightest differences in places.

    I was told it raced the east coast, it's 1 of 10 in the world and it's from Italy which explaines everything labeled on the boat being written in Italian, the kitchen says cucina.

    It's such a Levi design and it looks like the front windows were filled in, maybe for the races...
