Giovanni Soldini Taking Helm Of Maserati Multi70 Trimaran
Published: Monday, 30 May 2016
Giovanni Soldini, a renowned Italian sailor with continuous engagement in Maserati competitions, will take the helm of a Multi70 trimaran, which was made available by Chairman of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles John Elkann. The craft will be renamed as Maserati Multi70.
Maserati, the Modena company owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has renewed its commitment as the Main Sponsor, consolidating a relationship with Soldini and his team since 2013. The new model will be flanked by UnipolSai Assicurazioni as the Project Sponsor. Ermenegildo Zegna will join as the official Clothing Supplier and Boero Bartolomeo comes as the Boat Paint and Enamel Supplier.
After the successes achieved over the last three years with the VOR70 monohull, Maserati Multi70 amounts to a re-launch of the team’s competitive ambitions as the trimaran represents the new frontier in sailing: this is a hugely technologically advanced boat capable of making in excess of 40 knots.
“After three very satisfying years with Maserati VOR70,” says Soldini. “During which we sailed at least 100,000 miles, covered all five continents and delivered important sporting results, the time has come to tackle some new adventures. I’m delighted to be undertaking this challenge with a multihull, Maserati Multi70. We’ll be getting to know the new boat in April and doing tests in Brittany. I can’t wait to get aboard her!”
