MYLIUS YACHTS – IL TEAM

Our sailing boats are a labour of love

More than of carbon and resin, our boats are made of the work of all our people. Only everyone’s passion, professionalism, diversity, curiosity and creativity  allow us to realize our boats, as beautiful and interesting as ours.

Obviously, individual work and skills are essential, but the ability to work as a team is even more crucial: “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” (Michael Jordan).

Our shipowners are our championships: from the President to the designers up to all workers, everybody’s aim is to listen, interpret and fulfil all needs and wishes of our owners, with whom we share all the phases of design, construction, fitting out and launching.

LUCIANO GANDINI MYLIUS

LUCIANO GANDINI

President

Luciano Gandini’s eyes sparkle when he talks about the Mylius 19E95 and generally what he tenderly calls “our” boat, since “We” is a constant for this dynamic entrepreneur of packaging.

Just as an example, the self-adhesive handles on the six bottles of mineral-water was his idea and its now applied by machines that his company –  TwinPack –  designs and builds.

What are Mr. Gandini’s passion? His work, measured by TwinPack’s success, and sailing. As he likes to remind himself: “Since I was a boy, in the Idroscalo in Milan or in Lake Garda, any boat was fine!” Every boats name? “Twin Soul”.

The Gandini Racing Team have been always full of champions, from Paolo Cian to Francesco de Angelis. His latest idea: “Merging a young shipyard with an industry group to reset the design and production methods.” Result: by the end of 2011 Mylius Yachts is owned at 51% by Twin Pack, with Luciano Gandini as President.

Here’s his personal business and strategic approach: “A great exchange of information between the construction site and packaging company with engineers of the two companies that talk and discuss every day. Therefore, production processes and systems are built with the same high industrial standards. A constant exchange. With my entrepreneurial setting I could not have done otherwise.”

Everyone aim is to achieve high performance and comfortable sailing yachts and Alberto is firmly pursuing the idea of a full integrated design between all the components that contribute to its creation, looking for the perfect balance through linearity and simplicity of the solutions and removing redundant elements, both in the interiors and in the outer parts.
