In 1995 Michele’s first complete yacht design 
contract was commissioned: the 36‐foot
Rain‐
bow
, or
Princetim
e (the commercial name). In 
fact,
Princetime
 continues in production to 
this day. In 2005, Michele opened his own 
design office in Fano. In 2008, Michele went 
to Marin (a ship basin) in Holland to test a 
motorboat of his design. Here, he became 
familiar with the world of applied research, 
which lead him to a more scientific approach 
to solving technical problems. 
 
His design office closed in 2009 and Michele 
become a surveyor for the Italian Naval Regis‐
ter (RINA); however, he continues his design 
and consulting work assisting private clients 
and he may be contacted through his web‐
site. At the moment, there are two boats un‐
der construction from his drawing board: the 
Val 39’ and a specialized party boat 44’ long. 
Michele maintains particular interest in acces‐
sories, operating his web studio, great voy‐
ages, and hybrid motorsailers.
