The Terranova Italian Yachts is a young and all-Italian story.
A story that begins in 2015 but with roots that fully identify with the visions, desires, passion of those who started it.
Terranova Italian Yacht was founded in April 2015 when its founder, Massimigliano Zilioli, took over the old shipyard and changed its name. But above all by bringing to the new company his vision of the meaning of entrepreneurship, the value of work and the quality of results, about human relationships outside and inside the business.
The sourdough of this choice, lies in the insatiable passion for the sea that has intertwined the whole life of Massimigliano Zilioli. Bergamasco born far from the shores of the Mare Nostrum, has always been the attraction, dreaming first and realizing then, the sailings that will lead him to live the sea, to study boats, to lay the foundations of what will become the project of Terranova Italian Yachts.
“I have always loved the sea and I have always had a boat. Over the years this passion has matured in me a precise philosophy: to live the sea loving the contact with nature and travel.”
In the spring of 2015, when our journey begins, the project defined in detail comes to life with precise and precise choices.
In these first months Terranova Italia Yachts opens its headquarters in Grone, near Bergamo, but above all it transfers the production base to Pisa Navicelli, an area where there is a sector that for technical skills, quality of workers and maritime culture represents one of the world’s excellences of nautical.
The Terranova team is completed with the arrival of every indispensable figure in the various sectors, from design to business strategies and immediately begins the phase of study and renewal of the product.
“A good entrepreneur must know how to listen”, likes to repeat Massimigliano Zilioli. True to this approach, we begin a real journey that brings us in contact with the owners of the Terranova Navettes, to the collection of advice and criticism, to the inspections on the boats. The result is a wealth of information that our team develops and compares with its own skills and sensitivities.
In the following months, our vision of a sober and deep relationship with the sea comes to life in the new project of the T85′ Shuttle.
Material excellence, state-of-the-art equipment, layout and quality furnishings are today the realization of a Terranova Italian Yachts philosophy that today permeates the design of the entire range.
Start the phase of communication with the realization and put online the new website, which you are visiting, but also the main social networks.
The new catalogues of the new production have been printed and distributed.
We have invested in an ADV campaign, making agreements and publishing in major news outlets and industry websites at national and international level.
We have registered the brand both at the Community and International level, to protect and guarantee a completely made in Italy product.
2016 is the year in which we give up our moorings to take the open sea:
Terranova Italian Yachts is present in the main International Salons: in Dusseldorf, Cannes, Fort Lauderdale, the contact with our customers is exciting and rewards the work of our team.
The need to internationalize the brand leads us to define strategic agreements with the most important companies of nautical in Europe, through the partnership with Dahm International and in the United States with Schooner Yachts Sales and West Yachts and Brokerage through which we are represented at the Miami International Boat Show 2017.
History is us, we said. Proud to be and to have written the first part of a journey that shifts its horizon every day a few miles further.
