BIO OF THE MONTH: FULVIO DE SIMONI

Few names have influenced modern yacht design as extensively as Fulvio De Simoni, designer of the WIDER range of superyachts and express cruisers. His relationship with Tilli Antonelli goes back over three decades to 1985 when he was commissioned to design the first Pershing 45' but even before then Fulvio had made an impact in yachting circles.


Born in the coastal town of La Spezia and surrounded by boats from an early age, it was inevitable that Fulvio's talent for design would find expression in yachts. In the 1970s he started designing sail boats, working for Alberto Mercati's studio. It was in 1983 that he founded Italprojects, to specialise in high tech projects for the Yachting industry. From that point on, his designs found worldwide acclaim, with over 2.500 yachts built for some of the biggest names in yachting.
"I have worked with Fulvio for almost 30 years and respect his ability to envisage future trends before they are properly established. He is a genuine design visionary." commented Tilli Antonelli, founder and CEO of WIDER.
