Gen Mar is the result of the dream of Claudio de Martis, who just missed winning the 3/4 ton cup with “Serbidiòla” in 1983. He then decided to surround himself with a group of like-minded sailing friends, with the same desire to win, so that each one, with their experience, could contribute to the creation of a winning boat. The job of designing “Gen Mar” was given to Alessandro Vismara. In 1988, just a week after its launch, “Gen Mar” won the Italian Championship Class IV IOR at Marciana Marina, and was awarded the “boat of the year”. It was also the best italian boat at the world championships.
