Building flying monohulls:
Persico will build Luna Rossa Challenge's two 75-ft. boats for the next America's Cup in Auckland.
Teaming up with a British contender:
Persico built the wings, platform and foils for the Land Rover BAR catamarans for the 35th America's Cup in Bermuda.
Backing two challengers:
Persico provided key catamaran components for these two well-known competitors in the 34th America's Cup.
It built the hull and foils for the Luna Rossa AC72 and manufactured the plugs and infused carbon moulds for the Artemis AC72 wingsails.
The 40-metre wings were moulded in Valencia, Spain, at partner Future Fibres' facility.
The turning point:
Persico Marine developed most of the necessary construction equipment, including four-part moulds, and handled the building of the two carbon-fibre Luna Rossa boats (ITA86 and ITA94) for the 32nd America's Cup.
Moreover, it backed the sailing team for all its technical and production needs.
Persico took on the challenge to be the first to mill the new-generation International America's Cup Class (IACC) shells and keels – unique components that were technologically advanced for the time.
