INTERVIEW- FaBio MarCelliNo
With the Bavaria E40 the professional
world was amazed and there were also
I am very happy about this and it is true
recognition for our teamwork. But only
with success in the market is there proof
that a boat project also functions as a
whole. With innovative boats you can also
appeal to a new buyer's group. Or finally
convince those who have hesitated so far,
because up to now their dream ship
simply did not exist.
That means that you have created a new
The Bavaria E40 is something like a crossover,
a concept between sail and motorboat.
There is actually a lot of market
potential, if one combines the advantages
of the two different worlds.
So you have thrown your body and soul
into your projects?
I always invest myself 200% in my yacht
projects. I was single and there was nothing
more rewarding for me than my job
and I lived for my work. Now I am married
and father of a son. Nevertheless, the
"Passion" has remained, my commitment
is still well above average.
What is your current project?
I am currently working on the Motorcat
Nautitech 47 Power. I am a sailor and a
motorboat enthousiast and therefore at
home in both worlds. Anyone who knows
me is aware of my preference for flybridges.
It was therefore only logical to
combine all my preferences in this project.
So you can expect a powercat with lots
of space and comfort.
What defines your work?
My ideal customer is an owner who runs
his own yacht. A mature, demanding
customer who has already owned several
boats. Or simply put, I want to make life on
board as easy and comfortable as possible
for intelligent people.
And how do feel about living in Germany?
I am an engineer, and in that area the
world of thought is already very similar.
I also come from Ischia, a well-organized
and perfectly functioning tourist destination.
It is like an island under German
leadership. Two of my uncles are married
to German women. Of course, I long for
the sea, the River Main near Würzburg
is only a weak substitute.
Can you reveal something from your past
that few people know about?
When I started out in my younger years
I worked as a journalist and wrote articles
for the magazine Barche a Motore. I did
that under the pseudonym Marcello
