We aim to finish the first model by the summer and then start an intense testing phase, which will lead to the first deliveries to customers from spring 2020.”

The boat has technological peculiarities that have gone well beyond the initial objectives of the project. We believe that we have taken a very interesting path for the entire development of the sector, with numerous possibilities of application to various types of boats.” – concludes Marco Sgalaberni.
