'Property of a Lady' delivered for UK debut
Entrepreneur & philanthropist Dr Karen Dickens, will be celebrating her new company and dealership Comitti Boats UK & Caribbean at the Ocean Village Boat Show (11th-20th September 2020). The team will be debuting the next generation of Comitti boats the BREVA 35 with Karen’s new boat ‘Property of a Lady’ delivered to the UK this month from the Comitti factory based on Lake Como since 1956.
The company aims to bring these iconic Italian motor boats to a much wider audience, across multiple markets and geographies. The timing of the Ocean Village Boat Show seems perfect to showcase these classically designed motor boats to a UK audience and the team will be offering one to one appointments throughout the show.

“Comitti is a small company in northern Italy and one of the few remaining Italian shipyards with a tradition of building classically designed Italian motor boats,” explains Karen. “It was through my initial purchase and semi-bespoke design of a VENEZIA 34 - ‘Octopussy’ and then building our new Comitti BREVA 35 – ‘Property of a Lady’ that I realised I wanted to be directly involved in expanding the reach of Comitti into new markets. The timing of the show is perfect so people can see this all new design and evolution of the Comitti brand for themselves and find out more about the four model families of the Comitti fleet.”
Today there are four Comitti model families encapsulating ‘not only a boat, a lifestyle’. VENEZIA – BREVA – ISOLA – DI LEGNO.
The newest model family is the BREVA, offering a contemporary evolution of a classical Italian design that remains timeless and ignores styling trends, available in 35ft or 29ft with other lengths in development.
The classical VENEZIA range offers an iconic design in 5 different lengths (34ft, 31ft, 28ft, 25ft and 22ft) each in 4 different levels of specification: Elegance, Classic Teak/Mahogany and Sport.
The ISOLA family currently available in 33ft with other sizes planned for the future, focuses on an open bow layout & central helm station allowing for full walkaround access to forward and aft dining/sunbathing areas. Specified with either outboards or sterndrives, a fixed stainless steel Bimini makes her an ideal family day boat or when specified with British diesel outboards by COX Power she becomes an incredibly elegant and versatile tender/chase boat.
The DI LEGNO boats; PORTOFINO and SANREMO embody the company’s heritage of fine craftsmanship using traditional materials while maintaining that bygone golden era of 1960’s Italian wooden boat design.
The Comitti Fleet ranges in price from £425,000 to £120,000 (+VAT and taxes), and with 15 different models in the fleet, Comitti is the perfect brand to satisfy connoisseurs - from day cruisers and pleasure seekers, to Superyacht tenders and those looking for commercial and resort business use: www.comittiboatsuk.com
