The GENESI 43 is a fast cruiser with innovative designing and building choices, characterized by a deckhouse interrupted by a large cross window that lits up the space and improves indoor ventilation. Interior spaces are carefully divided in 3 double cabins, 2 bathrooms and a sail locker. The sandwich-structured construction, implemented in the hull too, allows this model to be lighter and sturdier. The central engine, spacious sideways, spacers and elliptical appendages are only a few highlights that characterize this project. This unit was launched in 1991, and it underwent a total refit between 2016 and 2014: replacement of teak on deck and cockpit; hull repainted in blue; sanding and repainting of mast, boom and spacers; a warp-oriented Spectra mainsail and jib were added in 2014; overhauling of 3-blade Max-Prop propeller; general overhauling of wheel.

With more than 5,000 units manufactured between the ‘70s and the ‘90s, COMAR YACHTS was at the forefront of the Italian boat-building scenario. The shipyard started by building sailboats between 7mt and 14mt designed by Finot studio. From the ‘80s we find several models designed by D. Peterson, Bruce Farr, Sergio Lupoli and Vallicelli studio. The latter also designed the Genesi 43. From 1996 on, the shipyard changed ownership and produced more than 1,200 units, all characterized by handicraft production aimed at quality constructions, vinyl ester resins and external finishing in customized fine woods. The commitment of the new owners were rewarded by several international recognitions: Yacht of the Year 2005 and 2006; Best Design Award in 2006, as well as important victories, such as the Italian ORCi Championship in 2006 and the World ORCi Championship in 2008 (in Greece).
