Franchini Yachts

Hi to All,
This is my first post so please bear with me.
I have a Franchini 45L mono hull in Queensland Australia, built 1996 and I am looking to find any other owners who would like to share knowledge of any of these vessels built by the Italian boat builder Franchini.
I have been unable to find any information about these beautiful boats on the net anywhere. Hoping to hear from some other owners.
Regards Greg theHijacke

Hi Dream101,
Sounds like you have a dream of doing some sailing, if so welcome.
Yes we still have her, she is a 1996 built boat and currently sitting in Urangan Boat Harbour Marina in Queensland Australia. Do You have one or know of the make?

Cheers Greg

Re: Franchini Yachts

Hi there Greg
Thank you for your reply.
My husband has fallen in love with the Franchini 45L & would love to buy one - but we have not seen one in the flesh!
We were wondering if we could possibly see yours???
Would that be possible?
All the franchinis for sale seem to be in Europe.
Please can you let me know.
Thanks so much
Lorna

Hi Lorna,
My boat is not for sale at this point but I like the fact that you like her and her type. Can I ask what are you looking for in a yacht? Do you have any experience in sailing? Are you prepared and able for the maintenance?
It is quite a bit to come from Sydney to Hervey Bay, I am considering you request.
It is interesting to have had a few replies to my post after such a while since I posted it. I don't do Facebook to look for that 47L, were you able to find it?

Regards Greg

Re: Franchini Yachts

Hi Greg
Thanks but we don't want to buy your boat (well not right now anyway) but we have been looking at lots and your model we think is the one for us! so we just wanted to see it in the flesh. Yes we have sailing experience - my husband has a 31 ft yacht, races every week, has done the Hobart and a few other races and sailed to Antarctica so we're not complete novices.
No rush at all - we just really want to see one to see if they are for us.
Cheers
Lorna
