Nabys is a shipyard. Not a rarity in Italy. According to a research by the CNA (Italian Confederation of Craft Trades) NAUTICA study centre, there are nearly 1,300 boat manufacturers in Italy. Added to these are the thousands of foreign shipyards that, even if they do not build in Italy, try to sell their boats in this country. Was Nabys really needed? Yes, there was a need for it. And for more than one reason.
First of all, because it builds beautiful sailboats. Beauty, we know, is subjective, but the first reason why people choose a boat is precisely because they like it. So, in our opinion, our Nabs are beautiful to see and amazing to use. Thanks to the design, quality of materials, construction processes and products we choose.
In Signa, just a few kilometres from Florence, we build sailboats in a different way. Instead of polyester resin and fiberglass, we use wood and flax fibre. We have decided to go back to the naval material par excellence, the oldest and the longest-lived one because, today, it is the best option. Not only for its direct and important ecological implications, but, above all, for the practical ones.
