    Timeless Sparkman & Stephens design, focussed on beauty, speed and the capability to face the sea. Launched in 1977, MAREA is a hugely capable and versatile piece of S&S and Italian classic yachting history.


    MAREA was built after the experience of her prototype RUNNING TIDE, one of the most successful of all Sparkman & Stephens designed ocean racers and proved to be super-successful under the IOR rules of the time. MAREA was launched later and was not conceived as a racing yacht, so her design and layout is softer and better suited to comfortable cruising with beautiful interiors designed by the renowned Italian naval architect Carlo Sciarrelli

    With only two owners across the past three decades, MAREA has proven herself to be a fantastic classic cruising yacht, both in and around the Mediterranean and also across oceans, including a very creditable 4th place in class from 29 boats in the 2012 ARC, completing the 2,680Nm crossing in 15 days.

    MAREA boasts many specification highlights including:-
    • S&S design with flush deck profile
    • Three cabins, three heads interior layout plus foredeck
    • Keel step aluminium mast with staysail
    • Recently replaced Raymarine electronics
    • Recently replaced 110hp Yanmar Engine
    • Watermaker
    • Generator
    • AIS & EPIRB

    Professionally maintained, MAREA is now ready for her next owner who will appreciate the timeless elegance and provenance of her Sparkman & Stephens design and the fantastic build quality of her Carlini construction.


    MAREA, built for an Italian owner by the Carlini shipyard in Rimini, on the same floors as RUNNING TIDE (drawing # 1969), has been defined by Olin Stephens as one of his best projects (Olin J. Stephens II, LINES, 2002, p. 132). According to Olin, she has three characteristics that make her so extraordinary: Beauty, Speed and the ability to face the sea.


    The Carlini Shipyard was founded in the immediate post-war period by Roberto Carlini, who had learned the techniques of shipbuilding working in the Gentili shipyards in the 1930s and 1940s. The first boats built were small drifts such as jole, snipe, dinghy, and then went on to collaborate with national designers such as Eng. Mario Roberti (father of the famous helmsman of Azzurra Stefano Roberti) and Studio Sciomachen.

    Thanks to the credibility acquired, started the collaboration with internationally renowned designers such as Robert Clark, J.H. Hillingworth, Laurent Giles, German Frers Senior, William Gardner and others.
    Then, in the mid-1950s, a constant collaboration with the Sparkman & Stephens studio began, which would lead to the creation of some of the most famous boats built by the Carlini Shipyard, such as the series of the "Alnair", the "Elan", the "Dida ", the" Kerkira”, “Tarantella", "Levantades", "Sagittarius", "Marea", "Ananda I" and many others, until the end of the seventies when the IOR regulation will no longer allow to build racing boats/cruise. The last project will be "Ananda II" in 1985.

    In the early seventies the relationship with the shipowner Raoul Gardini will be fundamental, which will lead, first to the construction of the "Naif", designed by Dick Carter and shortly after to the realization of the "Moro Di Venezia 1976", designed by German Frers Jr., with which, the Carlini Shipyard will then build boats such as "Nita", "Antipolis", "Rumegal" (currently Dida VI) and "Sely".

    After graduating from the Nautical Institute of Ancona, Stefano Carlini begins to work definitively with his father Roberto.

    In the early eighties started the collaboration with Arch. Carlo Sciarrelli.
    Thus beautiful boats will be born such as, "Serida I", "Chica Boba III", which participated in the 1984 Ostar edition, and "Serida II", a 22 m kecht, still the flagship of the shipyard, which will mark the passage of deliveries from father to son, after the death of his father Roberto in 1985.

    After that followed “Clan I", "Teresa", "Fenice", "Pamadica", "Dulcinea", "Hilde", "Parsifal", "Iria", "Latest Rorolima" (the only example of a motor boat), "Angelica IV" and "Clan II".

    Noteworthy is the collaboration with Studio Claudio Maletto from which "Diva" (¾ tonner) will be born and with Studio Vallicelli for the realization of Conchita IV (cutter 57 ').
