There will be many new features and events that will enrich a year of celebrations, starting with the launch of a new website, the restyling of the brand logo, the publication of a book covering twenty-five years of history and finally the presentation of a concept.
“Celebrations always lead us to take stock of the past,” says Sergio Cutolo “The 25 years of Hydro Tec instead mean the projection into the future of our studio, which has always been committed to innovation”
Founded in 1995 as an engineering company specializing in hydrodynamics, Hydro Tec has based its success on the founder’s experience in the design of fast hulls for commercial and recreational purposes. Over the years, the firm has evolved to a dimension that today embraces the whole part of Naval Architecture and Engineering, combining also an undisputed ability in the field of Design.
Boats such as Naumachos, the Darwin series, Prima, Taiba, Divine, Stella di Mare, Dragon, and the next Flexplorer, produced by Cantiere delle Marche and named “Aurelia“, come to mind. All projects in which the skills of the Hydro Tec team have been able to express themselves at their best, thanks to a holistic vision that takes into account all aspects of yacht design of all types and sizes.
The 25th-anniversary celebrations
Hydro Tec has decided to celebrate this important anniversary with a series of initiatives ranging from the restyling of its logo to the design of the new website and, subsequently, the presentation of a revolutionary concept and a book that traces these twenty-five years of continuous evolution from one project to another.
The new logo reinterprets the concept of the bow of a ship, already present in the previous design, in a more modern and stylized way, while the website has been completely revised, inserting high quality graphic material and a series of information about the boats already sailing, those under construction and the various concepts produced by the studio.
The concept has been developed on an explorer platform but with innovative solutions and cutting-edge technological content, such as the hybrid propulsion system, already successfully tested by Hydro Tec on the Columbus Sport Hybrid 40 series.
The book, finally, recounts the ten years of Sergio Cutolo’s career and retraces the twenty-five years of the studio’s life, telling anecdotes, backstage, technical details and enriching it all with graphic content and original drawings, as well as the contributions of various personalities with whom Hydro Tec has been confronted in its first 25 years of life.
A “social” campaign on the main platforms will enrich this period of celebrations and memories that will culminate next spring with a dedicated event.
