Cool magazine advertisement for the International Trucks or "Jungle Yachts" used by Commander Gatti's who explored Africa in the 1930s. The advertisement shows one large streamlined trailer with top observation deck. Two smaller streamlined trailers are shown along with three more international trucks of the Gatti expedition fleet. The text reads, International Trucks chosen for Commander Gatti's "Jungle Yachts" The celebrated explorer, Commander Attilio Gatti, who has spent thirteen years of his life in the African wilderness, is again at the boarder of the Belgian Congo, outfitted and equipped for the greatest adventure of his career. During the next year, while the Commander and his wife roam over the immense heart of the equatorial jungle, they will center their operations around their "Jungle Yachts." The nucleus of the Tenth Gatti African Expedition is a de luxe apartment on wheels - two streamlined trailer units designed by Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky and powered by International Trucks. Other Internationals will serve the complex needs of the project over an area one-third as large as the United States, and largely unexplored. Commander Gatti says about his fleet of International Trucks: ".... On our automotive power hangs the success of our venture in the jungle trails and mountains of Africa. We had to hove as power cars the very, very best on the market. And we had to have other reliable trucks to carry our great stock of supplies and provisions, our precious movie and photo equipment, our camp, etc. We could not risk the irreplaceable results of months of hard work. "For this, however, we did not have to make any new research. The many years I have spent in Africa and the 100,000 miles I have already made there with trucks and cars of a dozen different makes have taught me enough. Without hesitation I let experience decide and I took all International Trucks. I know they will give us great service for the major transport and as liaison units for the various parts of our caravan."
