Through the 1950s and 1960s, Jack Laurent Giles and Cantiere Sangermani, Lavagna, Italy, achieved a design and build symbiosis resulting in exquisite yachts – some of the best ever built.

VIOLA, in which Cesare Sangermani also had a hand in the design, is second to none in understated good taste and fine craftsmanship, and with legendary Giles sailing performance guaranteed.

VIOLA has belonged to only three families since new and enjoyed several refits in her lifetime to keep her to the manner born, most recently by her original builders 2013-2015, including new deck, engines and drive train, generator and all electric, electronic and hydraulic systems. That combination of few owners and the best of regular attention and updating of systems really shows: VIOLA is a very special thing.
