According to Italian law, boats that do not exceed 10 meters in length (hull length) do not need to be registered. In bureaucratic jargon they are called “natanti”. To give you a concrete example: it’s as if they were bicycles. No license plate, reduced bureaucratic practices, simplified safety equipment.

Capable of excellent average sailing.
