Matteo Cappellazzo and Mattia Piro specialise in pleasure craft and luxury sectors as well as the architectural and residential sectors.
The 25m Italia can speed at an amazing 50+ knots. The high-performance yacht transforms from sleek speedster to pure water play sculpture as two sets of gull wing doors open to reveal jet skis and open up a chic lounging area. A bar and sofa seating surround a central pool and the well-equipped galley. Cabins come with a simple design. A dash displays digital data at the modern cockpit, while the windows invite natural light in. The long windows on top of the deck can allow guests to see the engines.
“The exhibition and the presentation of our projects in a charming venue like Genoa Boat Show highlight a result that is very satisfactory in itself, enriching it and making it even more unique,” says PC Design Co-Founder and Chief Designer Matteo Cappellazzo.
“Our course goes on, thanks to the competition and to the association we could take a few more steps forward,” says Mattia Piro. “We hope to deliver Italia to her future Owner as soon as possible.”
