No more mast for the Perini Principessa
The ex-yacht of Mr Berlusconi, the 41m Perini "Principessa Vai Via", lost its main and mizzen masts in July whilst heading to Isola Rossa in Sardegna.
The 1991 yacht that had her mast overhauled last spring and the rigging completely rebuilt, is now the property of Mr Ennio Doris, the President of Mediolanum.
15 people were aboard (7 crew and 8 guests including Doris'wife and daughter) and none of them suffered life-threatening injuries.
Despite strong winds, SY "Principessa vai Via" was towed to Stintino.
