Once the head of Ferrari, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia – Giovanni ‘Gianni’ Agnelli built a reputation as a man of elegance and fine taste, a true bon vivant and celebrated icon of the ’50s and ’60s.

It was in 1967 that Agnelli commissioned the G. Cinquanta day boat (also known as the G50) designed by Renato ‘Sonny’ Levi, himself known for pushing the boundaries of deep V-hull design in search of speed on high seas.

The end result is an ultra-slick 11.2-metre vessel by Cantier Delta in Anzio. The hull is made of laminated mahogany – with a mechanical resistance to torsion higher than steel – while the deck is finished in Burmese teak.

Powering the vessel are four 8.0 litre Vulcano engines, providing 1280hp and a top speed of 50 knots (92km/h).

It’s not all sport without comfort, with the Pininfarina designed cabin featuring two bunks, a toilet sink and shower.

While at anchor, shade is provided for the cockpit and aft by white Bimini sunroofs and of course there is the original stern ladder to dip into the water.

The vessel is currently being auctioned by RM Sotheby’s – closing July 22 and with a current price of approx. $367,000.
