When Acrobatica is synonymous with dream

The dream of Alberto Riva, the engineer who sails the waves of the oceans, but also of ours, who, as technical partners, contributed to turning it into reality.

“Acrobatica” is a Class40, a particularly fast boat capable of reaching 30 knots, that was built at the San Giorgio Marine shipyards in Genoa. It’s a so-called "scow" boat, that is, with a round bow that facilitates gliding on the waves; it’s an innovative boat, with sophisticated electronic and IT systems and complete with solar panels, with the ambition of achieving total energy autonomy.

Stoppani is the technical sponsor with the customised painting process, supplied by the local distributor Canessa.

The project behind “Acrobatica”, a latest generation Class40, has a duration of 3 years and will take Alberto Riva around the world, to compete in the most important international sailing competitions: a sporting programme that sees the "baptism" in the ocean next October with participation in the very tough transatlantic "Transat Jacques Vabre" to return to the ocean in the spring of 2024 on the occasion of the Transat CIC (from Brest to New York), historic solo regatta once known as Ostar. Alberto will then set sail for the "Atlantic Cup" (from Charleston to Newport, in the United States) and finally back to Europe for the equally famous "Quebec-St Malo", for a total of 7500 miles and three Atlantic crossings in 9 months.
