This yacht was designed during the first half of the 20th century. They were designed as patrol pilots and after the Second World War the concept was converted into pleasure boats. The 53-feet motor yacht is a classic day cruiser built in wood with a fly bridge deck. Motomar Lavagna was a small shipyard based in north Italy and WALKING IN THE RAIN’s is the only blue hull still existing in the series Motomar 53. The main deck’s spacious interiors are elegant, as her cabins were designed with generous headroom to ensure guests are always comfortable. There are three cabins, the master cabin and two double cabins capable of accommodating 6 guests. For enjoying the outdoors, WALKING IN THE RAIN offers a sunbathing area within the sun deck surrounded by open air spaces and another sunbathing area forward on the deckhouse. This is the perfect day cruiser to enjoy the Mediterranean coast with family and friends.
