Sailing Living Lab aims to test innovative technology-based products for the nautical world and help to put them into the market.

Products such as marine drones, solar panels, electric motor, desalinization facility and more will be tested aboard the sailboat Acrobat during a trip around the world starting in October 2016.

The in situ testing, typical of a Living Lab, will allow acquiring a fine understanding of technical features and possible improvements of the new products.

We are going to cooperate with a company with large experience in financing nautical products, Afinan, that has a deep knowledge of the market, its features and needs.

In the future, Afinan can help the diffusion of innovative nautical products by financing the installation of products tested and validated onboard Acrobat on other boats.
