The boat are designed in order to combine excellent navigation performances together, thanks to the appropriate geometry of the hull, designed to achieve very seakeeping attitudes, and to the highest degree of safety. The stability and the stiffness are always fundamental starting points for the development of the boat design; the deck is designed to meet everyone's demand, for comfort and relax - during the navigation and at anchor. All boats, including the custom ones, are designed in accordance to the regulations of ISO-CE rules. The custom boats are available in plans according to the different materials (Fiberglass, Sandwich, Wood,  or Aluminium) or can be built on request thanks to the partnership with the shipyards.
