All success stories begin with a challenge, and we are no exception. In 1960 there was nothing but sea and a distant horizon before us: as we saw things, that could never do.
Se we rolled up our sleeves and set our brains to work, and that’s how FIART was born. The acronym stands for
“Fabbriche Italiane per l’Applicazione di Resine Termoindurenti”
. At 3,6 metres, our first fiberglass boat, Conchita, was indeed rather small. Almost nothing, when measured against the span of our history to date.
And yet it is thanks to her, and to later models such as the Sagittario that Italians stopped simply gazing at the sea, and took to seamanship. In a short lapse of time, boating became popular and widespread, and Italy a little more light-hearted.
Our boats today are much larger than Conchita and are fitted with advanced engines and equipment, and can range far and wide.
The world has changed, and we lead.
