During one of Giovanni Soldini’s visits to the Boero Group plant (famous among yachtsmen for its Veneziani brand), we took the opportunity to ask the great yachtsman a few questions about antifouling, paints and enamels.
You can find the interview in the events area of Milano Yachting Week – The Digital Boat Show. We recommend that you go and watch it now by clicking on the link below.
You will discover which products Soldini uses on his very fast flying trimaran Maserati and which can also be used by those who sail for pleasure, the importance of the entire painting cycle in terms of resistance and weight saving (and therefore better sailing performance).
A talk to be listened to with attention and from which to draw inspiration.
The antifouling that Giovanni calls “Carbon Speed”, in the video, is Speedy Carbonium by Veneziani, a hyper-performing product that you can find HERE at Milano Yachting Week.

The most famous sailor in Italy was born in Milan on May 16, 1966 and started sailing as a child. He has thirty years of oceanic regattas behind him, including two solo round-the-world races (one victory and one second place), six Québec-Saint Malo (one victory in the monohull class), six Ostar (two victories in the 50-foot and 40-foot classes), three Jacques Vabre (one victory in the 40-foot class), and more than 40 transoceanic races.
Aboard the VOR70 Maserati set the Cadiz-San Salvador record and the Route of Gold record by covering the 13,225-mile distance between New York and San Francisco in 47 days, 42 minutes and 29 seconds. In 2015, he set the groundbreaking Tea Route record, covering the distance between San Francisco and Shanghai in just over 21 days. With the trimaran Multi70 Maserati, he set the record on the Hong Kong-London route and recently won line honors in the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
