Producing high-end yachts and powerboats always best in quality, comfort and performances. This is the aim of Sarnico Group, the Italian-based company that has 20 years of experience. The shipyard produces a range of boats that goes from 24 to 80 feet , all of them designed to last over time thanks to the collaboration with renowned architects and designers such as Carlo Nuvolari, Dan Lenard, Brunello Acampora and Dante O. Benini. The unique and elegant furniture of the cabins - crafted by master carpenters of Lake Iseo which still carry on their traditional techniques - alongside with innovative construction techniques and accurate assembly, ensure sturdiness and quality, while the hulls offer excellent performance and low fuel or energy consumption.
The design and modeling of the boats are made with the help of computer systems and robotic cutters. The optimization of each layouts is obtained by full-scale mock up. The efficiency of the hulls and propulsion systems is experienced with dynamic tests. One of the largest and most modern booths allows to achieve aesthetic results at the highest level.
