THE PARTNERS OF GUIDETOVENICE (updated April 2017)

The trabaccolo (lugger) "IL NUOVO TRIONFO" is the largest classic Adriatic boat still maintained in sailing condition. Built in the shipyard of Cattolica in 1926, it was bought in 2008 by a group of Venetians committed to its demanding restoration for possible reuse as a recreational boat. "Il Nuovo Trionfo" participates every year in the most important public events of the city of Venice and its lagoon. The Regata Storica or the Feast of the Redentore seen from the deck of this magnificent boat are unforgettable experiences. Upon request you can join the crew for scheduled events.
