Persico began its venture in the marine industry when an unexpected visitor came calling.

One day after the installation of Persico’s CNC 5-axis miller, Mr. Caglieris, an engineer working for the prominent industrialist Raul Gardini, showed up to have a look at the innovative machine.

Mr. Gardini was the head of the Il Moro Challenge syndicate, which was about to build the five Il Moro di Venezia boats for the 28th America’s Cup.

Other notable members of the team were the skipper, Paul Cayard, and the designer, Germán Frers.

Persico took on its own 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 those times.

VOLVO OCEAN RACE
2017-2018
Persico Marine won the prestigious contract to construct new one-design Volvo Ocean 65 Team AkzoNobel.

“Every new boat is exciting, but this one is something special,” said Skipper Tienpont. The boat is identical in specification to the existing fleet of seven Volvo Ocean 65s built for the last Volvo Ocean Race.
2015
Team Vestas
Salvaging a competitor: Vestas Wind – 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race Persico repaired the Vestas Wind in record time after the boat ran aground on the Cargados Carajos Shoals in the Indian Ocean during the Volvo Ocean Race. Thanks to the Herculean efforts of Persico and its collaborators, the boat was able to rejoin the race in Lisbon for the last few legs.
2014-2015
Volvo One Design
Persico Marine was chosen to manufacture the moulds, hulls, structural bulkheads, keel boxes and other key parts for the new 65-foot class of monohulls for the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race.

52 SUPER SERIES
Building almost twin TP52s
Persico was commissioned to build both the Rán and Gladiator TP52s for the 2015 season.
This led to significant savings for the teams, who split the primary tooling costs.
Nevertheless, each boat was given its own identity with substantial differences in onboard systems, as well as subtle changes in deck geometry.
