If you're wondering how Giovanni got into the world of boating, the answer is simple: it's a family affair. In fact, Giovanni learned to sail with his parents starting at an early age, hoisting the sails and handling the tiller, all in the sunshine. In short, he had all the secrets of how to become a real sailor.
After years without a boat, this former monohull racing sailor decided to buy his very first Excess in 2021: The Excess 11 RÊVE.
“It was the perfect compromise. I love both the profile and the “hybrid” concept, halfway between a traditional monohull and a very cruisey catamaran such as a Lagoon”, says Giovanni.
Our sailor’s Excess 11 is no ordinary catamaran, however. He’s made sure of that. Between solar panels, LED lights in the cockpit and a PC chartplotter, he's built himself a boat made to measure. Because that’s what Excess is all about: the possibility of creating the boat of your dreams, your flawless ally that will take you to all four corners of the world.
So, what's your next destination?
At Excess, we're not just all about seasoned sailors. We’d also like to hear about the odysseys you experience at sea. So, it's your turn to dazzle us now!
