Owner Patrizio Facheris is an Italian designer who has more than 30 years in marine and industrial design. He has worked in both Europe and the United States with many boat companies and design firms.

“His pursuit of modern, elegant style and his experience in the marine field makes this partnership with Cobalt Boats a wonderful opportunity to build new cutting-edge boats,” Cobalt Boats CEO Paxson St. Clair said in a statement. “New product development is the foundation of our three-year growth plan and we are doubling the resources invested in product development to bring our customers the ultimate boating experience.”
