I've tracked it back as far as I could from source to source and the photo has always been identified as Audrey Hepburn. It does look a lot like Isabella Rossellini, but I think she'd be too young to be in a photo like this. Hepburn has 20 some years on Rossellini who would be 15 or 16 at the most when this would have been shot, by my best guess. Good point though, you never know with the internet, and I'll look into if further, because you might be right.

I also thought it was isabella rosselini

I changed the title from Audrey Hepburn to Speedboat because I'm really unsure of who this is now and can't get it verified anywhere. I'm leaning towards Rosselini, but I don't want to be the source of more information that's unchecked.

It's Audrey :)
This picture is included in the latest photo book of her called Audrey 100. The book is published in association with her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer and the UNICEF children's fund under her name. There are 3-4 other shots from the same sailing trip that you could also find in the book. The picture was taken by Hans Gerber.

Nevertheless, the resemblance is so close to that of Isabella Rossellini, and I adore them both. :)

I think it could be Ingrid Bergman, Isabella's mother?!
