About this Veronese Bermudan Cutter

RESOLUTION II is a Bermudan cutter rigged motor yacht, designed by Bruno Veronese who under the pseudonym Capitano Black wrote “Yachting” the first comprehensive manual for yachtsmen by an Italian author. Having written numerous articles also for the major yachting magazines, his final treatise "Yacht Progetto e Costruzione", was published posthumously in 1991.

Veronese’s design career started in the late 1940s in Genoa and his quite prolific output yielded some 30 yachts built to his designs including the Classics; COPPELIA, TYRSA, EURYDICE, VALLEY III and PANDORA; all notable for both their elegance and the strength of their design in construction. Benefitting also from the ideas of other designers, some influence of Jack Laurent Giles can be seen in respect of this boat RESOLUTION II.

She has proved the ideal cruising yacht for friends and family - and for the evident pleasure particularly of the owner’s two younger children. Perfect for holidays she is warm and welcoming - synonymous with escape and freedom. Moreover for a vessel of her size she is remarkably easy to manoeuvre both under sail, with extensive reefing capabilities or engine, even by one person, thanks to ideal positioning of the controls – and indeed her propeller configuration, enabling her to turn on the spot.

History


Originally RO-RO IV, she was built by Cantiere di Pisa in 1958, to the order of Italian industrialist Sr Roveda - a gift for his wife Rossella; hence the name RO-RO IV. For more than forty years, she was based in Portoferraio, on the island of Elba where Roveda owned a vineyard. She sailed everywhere in Mediterranean and even to the West Indies, with a permanent skipper, who maintained, prepared and delivered her as required.

In 2002 Sr Roveda, at nearly eighty years old, was preparing for a cruise to Spitzbergen, when his skipper Luca Riva of more than fifteen years decided to retire, prompting Roveda also to swallow the anchor. He sold RO-RO to a Mr Charles Flahs in 2003 who registered her in France. Shortly up for sale again she was bought by her present owner and rechristened RESOLUTION II in 2005.

Thereafter she was based successively in Port Grimaud (2005), Saint-Laurent-du-Var, Port-El-Kantaoui in Tunisia (2008 and 2009) and Kalamata in Greece. From these bases she has sailed the Cote d’Azur, Corsican, Sardinia, the Tuscan archipelago, Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, Malta and at last Greek waters and the Ionian Islands, Crete and adjacent archipelago.
