The international jury awarded Massimo Perotti – Chairman/CEO of Sanlorenzo S.p.a. – the prestigious Personality of the Year prize, awarded for “an outstanding career, as in a few years he has led Sanlorenzo among the three largest yacht builders of over 24 mt. In the latest years the shipyard has constantly progressed in building larger size yachts, with two 64-meter superyachts under construction in the La Spezia facility. Large investment in infrastructures have contributed to this upgrade”.
