    It looks like a Technomarine. Not sure what size.

    I think I'd rather see the half under the water.

    The boat in question appears to predate Horizon Cats. I'm inclined to side with SeaEric. Looks like a vintage Tecnomarine...

    (like 1990's is vintage!) :rolleyes:

    Tecnomarine T72 with custom (not by Tecnomarine I think) extended hull. Designed by Stefano Righini in 1992/3. Model was later updated to T78 in 1997/8 with more minor cosmetic changes then length (lightly longer bathing platform).
    They should have sold a total of less to ten hulls in the period for both models. Possible two or three 78s made and about five 72s.

    Tecnomarine closed in 1999/2000 and the yard where they where build in Viareggio was sold with the Lusben holding (same owner) to Azimut-Benetti in around 2001/2.

    The T58 was very similar to the 72 but the one of the picture, see flybridge and the bow tells me that is a 72.

    SO the sinken vessel is the T72, but the one in the second picture is the T58 (hard top) model. http://www.boatersresources.com/boat-for-sale/1993-TECNOMARINE-Motor-Yacht-Used-372042

    You can recognized the T72 cause of the center-ship cleats. They stole everything from that yacht, railing furnitue, are the engines still there :(

    And the updated version was called T77 not 78 :)

    Oh she is a 58. The bollards at midships and to stern gave it as a 72. Nice find.

    I used to run a 64 but the bridge windows were more wrap-around which made me think of the Horizon. I stand corrected. (Lars, do you remember Nouf in Antibes)?
