Maurizio Testuzza

The destiny and the activity of Adriasail Custom Yachts are since ever linked to the founder Maurizio Testuzza.

Born and grown up in Milan, after the degree in architecture, he starts his adventure at Giorgetti and Magrini, one of the most important design firm and specialist in refitting large sailing and motor yachts.

In the end of the eighties he meets Raoul Gardini, already captain  of industry and owner of dream sailing yachts. And the dream was AC and Tencara shipyard. Tecara becomes synonym of state-of-the-art technology and audacious

experimentation in the nautical field and Testuzza himself becomes one of the project manager at the shipyard. Moro di Venezia wins the Luis Viutton Cup in 1992, but Raoul Gardini’s death sees the last of further projects development.

In years featured by a marked economic downturn, Testuzza anyway makes the decision to invest on his future, entering into CNB Fano shipyard shareholding; the construction of Nauta and Frers designs dates back to that period, as well as Giovanni Soldini’s Fila ’60.

In middle nineties CNB is chosen, among others in the United State, Italy and the UK, as accredited

shipyard for building Wally Yachts sailing boats, at that time a brand new star. The strong development driven by Wally – 14 yachts built between 65’ and 105’ – confirms once again the vocation of being “>> FAST FORWARD”, concept that later will become Testuzza’s own boat name.

Adriasail Custom Yachts was born in 2003 as the most recent operation of this professional path. With the cooperation of a team he shared more than 20 years working with, Testuzza “brought Fano in the world” and with a wider and more industrial vision he keeps up building yachts “customized in the logic of enhancement of Owners’ thoughts”.
