As the various boats go by during the parade portion of Regata Storica, some vessels are obviously club boats or dressed-up gondolas, and then there are the ones which were built specifically for this event. Here are a few of those boats.
Each boat is meant to represent something unique. This boat has a "Far-Eastern" look, which is especially evident in the prow.
Every time I look through these images, my desire to be there next year increases.
