MYLIUS YACHTS – THE TEAM

Our sailing boats are a labour of love

Our sailing boats are a labor of love

More than just 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 craft boats as beautiful and interesting as ours.

Obviously, individual work ethic 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 to all workers, everybody’s aim is to listen, interpret and fulfill all the needs and wishes of our owners, with whom we share all the phases of design, construction, outfitting, and launching.

LUCIANO GANDINI MYLIUS

LUCIANO GANDINI

President

Luciano Gandini’s eyes sparkle when he talks about the Mylius 19E95. He tenderly calls it “our” boat, since “we” is a constant state of mind for this dynamic entrepreneur.

To exemplify his entrepreneurial acumen, he had the idea for self-adhesive handles on the six-pack bottles of mineral-water; these are now applied by machines that his company – TwinPack – designs and builds.

What are Mr. Gandini’s passions? His work, as seen by TwinPack’s and Mylius’ success, as well as sailing. He likes to remind himself: “Since I was a boy, in the Idroscalo in Milan or in Lake Garda, any boat was fine!” Every boat’s 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 industrial group to reset the design and production methods.” The result? By the end of 2011, 51% of Mylius Yachts was owned by Twin Pack, with Luciano Gandini as President.

Here’s his personal approach to his business and strategy: “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 mindset, I could not have done otherwise.”

Alberto Simeone chief designer

ALBERTO SIMEONE

Head of Design and Engineering & Technical Manager

Architect, yacht designer, and seaman. In 2003, together with other two friends, Alberto became one of the founders of Mylius. A generalist and versatile by both nature and training, he followed his father’s footsteps as he enhanced the components of yacht design, technology, and construction techniques. He worked in his father’s studio and Simeone’s shipyard, both of which were famous in the boat industry in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Now he coordinates engineers, architects, designers, and technical specialists, which comprises the technical staff of Mylius. Everyone has the aim to achieve high performance in comfortable sailing yachts; Alberto is firmly pursuing the idea of a full integrated design between all the components that contribute to its creation, while looking for the perfect balance through linearity and simplicity of the concepts. He strives to remove redundant elements, both in the interiors and in the outer parts.

An expert sailor and racer, he  personally verifies the results of his design choices in an ongoing process of feedback between the sea and the drawing board.
