Francesco Paszkowski Design was awarded with the 32nd Boating Industry Pioneers Award in the designer category. The Italian Marine Industry Association has been organising the award since 1988.
The prestigious award acknowledges people who stood out in the boating industry for their commitment, reliability and skills. The award has the patronage of Economic Development Ministry since 2007.
The award ceremony was held yesterday, June 29th, at the suggestive location of Villa Lo Zerbino in Genoa during the 2023 SATEC Convention, the event organised every year by the Italian Marine Industry Association.
The Jury consisted of the General Command of the Port Authorities, of the Board of the Italian Marine Industry Association and the winners of the award previous edition. Francesco Paszkowski Design was selected as “since 1990 the studio has been creating new designs for a growing number of renowned shipyards throughout the world, symbol of the excellence of the marine field all over the world. While Francesco Paszkowski Design team acts with boundless energy and enthusiasm to inspire the young designers starting to work at the studio, they keep an eye on new aesthetic and functional trends without never losing sight of the main objective: to translate the needs of shipyards and the desires of owners and turn them in to new beautiful and unique yachts. With passion, to create emotion”.
Over more than the past 30 years Francesco Paszkowski Design has created an extensive fleet of vessels and new designs, both planing and displacement, in fiberglass and aluminium, custom and series yachts. Their designs, from the very first one of 29 m to the largest so far of 72, show the yachting world evolution from the 90s until today through different shapes, kind of boats, size and materials.
“I am honoured and proud to receive this prize people were already awarded with by contributing to the marine field development we all belong to here – commented Francesco Paszkowski during the prize-giving ceremony. “This award is a privilege for our design firm, as it recognises the daily commitment and passion of the whole team for our profession that it keeps on being so amazing after so many years”.
