Desto is one of the oldest wooden ships on the Adriatic (trabbacolo), with a long and tumultuous history, owned by the family since 1974. It was built in 1900 in Chioggia (Italy). It was completely restored twice, in 2011 and 2014. As the oldest trabaccolo in use, it comes off as sea attraction in the Mid Adriatic.
