Wednesday, 03 October 2012

 

One year after beating the record on the Monte Carlo – Venice route the “FB Design”, another boat designed by Fabio Buzzi and powered by two FPT Industrial C90 650 engines, breaks a new record on the New York to Bermuda route.

Exploiting a narrow and closing weather window, the boat covered the nearly 670 nautical miles in just 17 hours and 6 minutes, at an average speed of 39,49 knots, thus shattering by 4 hours and 33 minutes the previous record set last August by Chris Fertig and Tyson Garvin with the Statement Marine boat powered by two Cummins MerCruiser Diesel TDI engines.

Fabio Buzzi, many times over world champion, titleholder of several water speed records and yacht designer, has led to victory his crew, consisting of: Roberto Rizzo, Antonio Binda, Maurizio Bulleri ed Emilio Riganti.
