“Carlo Sciarrelli was born in Trieste on 6 July 1934 and died in Trieste on 24 September 2006. He was a difficult man, sometimes grumpy, but endowed with a great sensibility forgotten by studying completely by himself and by a profound knowledge of both technical and psychological boating.
Truly “Triestino”, son of a railway and himself an employee of the FFSS, in March 2003 received a degree in architecture “honoris causa” from the University of Venice. Author of “The Yacht – Origin and evolution of the pleasure craft”, an important book published in 1970 with the history and exchanges of the sailing yacht and the with the publication of most of its achievements.
Sciarelli has created more than 400 boats starting with ANFITRITE in 1960 and AGLAIA in 1964, then moving on to projects that are still competitive as SAGITTARIUS of the Italian Navy that still today compete at high levels. and then via ASTARTE II, AURIGA, CHIRONE, ATTICA, NABABBO, TIZIANA IV, SANDRA II, ISABELLA, CHAPLIN and many others.
“The beauty is not new and the new is not beautiful.” He used to say and, indeed, all his design still refers to a classically pure line, with recurring motifs like the heart stern. Surely it is one of the major representatives of Italian yachting of the last century; he was a lover of “beauty” and of boats made “like the sea commands”.
We have absolutely loved the past 15 years of cruising the med on Elisir. It will be hard to part ways with her. We are looking for a new owner who will love and care for her as much as we have.
The only reason we are considering selling Elisir is that we have purchased a larger boat with more “creature comforts” – a Sweden Yachts 54 – and it isn’t practical for us to keep 2 boats simultaneously.
