Nautical Ventures Group, which said it aims to be the largest tender reseller and distributor, hired designer Fabrizio Di Carne as its in-house engineer for a new line of tenders.

The group said Di Carne’s career spans more than 25 years as an accomplished product designer and engineer from the automotive and marine industries.

Hailing from Milan, Italy, Di Carne had his start with automakers that include Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Bugatti, Ferrari, Fiat, Lancia and Volkswagen.

Toward the mid-1990s he shifted gears from automotive to marine by becoming the designer for new-product development at Novurnia America and Nautica International, respectively.

During his tenure at both builders he is credited with creating more than 21 innovative models, many still on the market today. Di Carne’s core competencies include analyzing market demand, tooling construction, production optimization and billing material.

“For years we have been partnering with several tender and RIB builders to develop our own line of tenders,” Nautical Ventures Group CEO Roger Moore said in a statement. “In the past we’ve partnered with Alessandro Marchi, Evolution, Wave, and came to the realization that we required a central in-house voice to bring to fruition our ideas. Fabrizio will be the one who will take our ideas and turn them into a reality.”

“We recently signed an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement with Evolution Tenders and Wave Boats, and they will both be debuting at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show,” Di Carne said.

“Wave is a 19-foot RIB tender, Evolution manufactures the M-10 and Evo 10 and 12 that are jet tenders powered by Yamaha Jets. Our new development Diesel E3 tender will be available for sale in early 2016. This is a revolutionary 385 model or 12.5-foot tunnel drive diesel-powered RIB. Initial sea trials conducted with the development team were very successful and final aesthetic design changes are now in process before production begins.”
