The list of the most read posts of 2016 on Automotive Space

automotive
  Also this year we like to publish the list of most read posts of Automotive Space. You can see there are more differences from the last post on the most read posts in 2015. For this reason we can confirm that Automotive Space doesn’t aim the last news. Unfortunately from one year we are publishing a fewer number of post because we haven’t abroad correspondents…be patient; we...

Body shop mechanic and car manufacturers, bewitched by boats

mercedes-AMG cigarette
  It is nothing new that designers and coachbuilders of the automotive field have focused on boats project, in particular on large yachts. Giugiaro has created partnerships with shipyards as Cranchi and Abbate and has signed a project about a new Baglietto long 48 metres, Antalia, in 2007. Norman Foster (McLaren F1) has signed projects of some futuristic yachts that are been admired – or at...

Dusseldorf: cast a glance over nautical world.

agapi-boating_single-4
  The Dusseldorf Boat Show, which took place during the last week in January, declared the 2016 boating season opened. About the organization of the Exhibition and the attendance figures there is not much to say! The organization is always excellent, a bit rigid (german), but surely efficient and focused on the visitors’ and workers’ needs . Numbers definitely describe it as the first and foremost...

Sailing by sea or living on the sea? The debut of Overblue, the crossover

Overblue 44
  Among the innovations at the Boat Show of Cannes and Genoa it couldn’t go unnoticed a “strange” boat, which could be similar to a house boat at a cursory look. Actually, at a second look even a layman realized that Overblue it’s not a simple houseboat but that have behind a very innovative concept and a lot of design work. We were lucky enough to meet the designer of Overblue, the architect...

Seventh commandment: you shall not steal (the outboard motor…)

outboard motor
  The theft of outboard motors, as well as that of small boats, dinghies and water motors, isn’t a recent phenomenon but in the last years it has become more frequent and organized. Ports and marinas, yacht clubs and associations, retailers’ sites and stores are increasingly “visited” by thieves. The outboard motor it’s an object easy to remove and transport, with a high intrinsic value...

Total Ecology: Am I dreaming or am I serious?

Arcona 380 Z
  Shipyards, which manufacture super fast and super motorized boats, advertise ecological solutions and environmental protection often unlikely. As it happens in the Automotive sector, also in yachting it is hard to find real alternatives in terms of consumptions and pollution and often the solutions adopted – see the electric motor – for now remain debatable because of efficacy and confined...

Dusseldorf boat show, uber alles

Dusseldorf Boat Show
  Dusseldorf boat show, January 2015 ! I can’t find a better title; firstly thanks to the organization, it was so efficient! You get the impression before entering: both if you arrive by public transports (train and tram railway reserved) and by car (organized parking lots with the shuttle service included in the price which leads you to the entrance that you prefer). You enter and find clean...

Car and boat, two worlds very close

boat
  Cars and boats, apparently two worlds very distant, in particular from a commercial point of view. I think this because I use boat for passion while I work with the car. Later on I was at the other side, working in the nautical field, when the joke became a job so I discovered… the other world. Some years ago – six/seven not so much – the world of yachting seemed the automotive...

The car and the boat: who chooses and who decides

Barca
  I take a cue from Elena Alberti’s interview, CFO of Penske Europe, in particular the paragraph where is dealt with the subject of decision maker in the car purchasing. Alberti declares that notwithstanding the 42% of purchasing is, in fact, made by women, it is still the family man who makes choices. To support the thesis, she tells also her own story, indeed she chooses color and model of...

When the eastern wind…

Est
 I have already had occasion to say that the world of the automotive and the recreational marine one are very close. In general, the world of boating retraces the same choices and pathways of the automotive… ten year later. Over the years in the automotive there are been manufacturers’ realities characterized by low cost connotations. To Asian manufacturers -mostly Koreans- who first pointed...
