Stefano Piviali is originally from Italy but has lived in Australia for 30+ years. He had planned to build his own Catamaran in Thailand, even to the point where he had plans, the yard and the contractors all lined up (he’s built several cats previously) but decided he didn’t want to wait 2-3 years and wanted a cat now. Stefano scoured the market and decided that the Fountaine Pajot Salina 48 was the best boat for him.
Stefano did a pick up ex factory from La Rochelle in France and has sailed The Mediterranean since pick-up. He bought the Salina 48 early last year and is now retired and is living the cruising dream with his wife.
