'Beyond Nena, four more Akhirs leave the yard this year...'

Beyond Nena, four more Akhirs leave the yard this year.
There is the imminent handover of an Akhir 90 and 135. Both of those should leave June.
Next comes an Akhir 108 to launch in July and an Akhir 118 for November.
Then spring 2010 should see the yard launch its biggest project to date, the first Akhir 153.
The Akhir range was recently redrawn by the revered Carlo Galeazzi. Summer ’08 saw the delivery of Lazy Me, the first of the new Akhir 135s, and then in early September the first of the new Akhir 108s went into the water.
Located next door to Pisa’s Galileo Galilei airport, Cantieri di Pisa has for several years been part of the Camuzzi Group along with Baglietto.
