Nando Dell'Orto racing the Arno XI hydroplane

The Arno XI hydroplane debuted in 1953, as the first and only boat powered by a Ferrari engine– a one-off genius collaboration that was built at the Cantiere Timossi boatyard on Lake Como. Speedboat racing champion Achille Castoldi, who had been integral to the boat's design, set the world speed record driving the Arno XI (for that weight class of boat) that same year, at 150.19 mph. This model of the famed Arno XI bears the name of racer Nando Dell'Orto, who took over racing the boat after Castoldi retired, and made several adjustments to the body of the original design to improve its aerodynamics.
