HISTORY PART 1 NEW (2).jpg
Ettore "Dorin" Sangermano (1869-1956)
1906 - Bagni di Montecatini

Sangermani’s boatbuilding activities began in the last years of the 19th century at Mulinetti, a village on the Riviera di Levante near Recco, not far from Genoa. Great grandfather Ettore “Dorin” Sangermano decided that he would build a boat in his workshop that “gave into the sea,” for his newborn son Cesare. At that time in Italy small-scaled sailing for pleasure did not exist and only the richest families could indulge themselves in yachting.

In 1906, Ettore won a gold medal at an important exposition, for a small sailing boat he designed and built: first official recognition of Sangermani boat building capabilities.

In 1928, Cesare and Piero Sangermani won the 5,50-metre class in the championship at Bogliasco in the speedy Vespa, which had just been completed. The many victories won by the Sangermani brothers in this yacht led to the production of other important racing boats, a tradition that continued.

From its early years the Cantieri Sangermani have been distinguished by its strategic decision not to build working boats, favoring the building of yachts.

The space available at Mulinetti became inadequate to satisfy the demands of their customers, who at the same time were commissioning larger and larger yachts, so in 1934 the Sangermani brothers decided to move the yard to Rapallo. Here, about 40 magnificent yachts were launched; notable among them being Samani I, inspiration of many subsequent motor-sailers, Santa Rita, Gipo II, and in particular the 22 meter sloop Samani II which is still sailing today and is well-known to many yachting enthusiasts.

At the beginning of the Second World War, the Sangermani brothers were once again looking for new space to enable them to expand their business. As a result of their construction skills they were called upon to run a shipyard at Riva Trigoso.

Under their leadership many vessels were completed, much larger than those they were used to build. Among these was one 40 meters long, Solaro I, which was commissioned in 1945 by the Archbishop of Genoa.
