The venture started in the 70s in Aquileia, on the shores of the Venetian Lagoon, where first the Romans and then the Serenissima Republic left their important seafaring heritage taken up by Solaris Yachts, manufacturer of Solaris. With a total area of 26,000 sqm, including 6,000 sqm under cover, besides building “custom” yachts, the yard has refitted and restored yachts up to 100 feet. With forty years of dedicated boat building and refitting experience, and a unique know-how, the technical department and the skilled workers of Solaris design and build top quality sailing yachts, combining technology and strength with the traditional manufacture of the incomparable wood interiors. 2018 - A new era dawns for Solaris Yachts. The historic headquarters in Aquileia have been extended to facilitate the production of each new Solaris to the optimum standards.


The quality and the finish of the interior joinery are distinctive features of Solaris, renowned and appreciated all over the world. The refined selection of fine woods combines with the skilled handmade care of the details. The craftsmanship is a necessity for the target that Solaris has set itself: excellence. The final result is a byword for unique and unmistakable fittings that are designed to be functional, comfortable at sea and ultimately durable.


There are two main characteristics which, when combined together, distinguish Solaris Yachts and make it unique among European boatyards: • the 35 years experience in refitting sailing yachts of all types and sizes; • the location of the yard by the sea, allowing sea trials to refine every design solution before commencing production and the team of tradesmen boasting a continuous sailing experience. Since its founding, Solaris has always had a specialized department for the repair and refit of custom and mass production yachts from boatyards all over world. Experience and tests at sea have demonstrated that most sailing yachts, suffer from the effects of the wind and the sea, resulting in movement and deformation. Creaking, doors that do not close during navigation and cracks that develop over time are proof of this. For this reason, from the outset, the...

World sailor Enrico Tettamanti, with over 100,000 ocean miles and 7 roundings of Cape Horn to his name and having witnessed how the yacht was built, has chosen the Solaris 72 to fulfill his next challenge that will see him circumnavigate the world in 5 years, far away from the conventional routes through the Arctic seas. The objective of Solaris is the pursuit of perfection even where you can’t see it. Every model in the Solaris range, unlike other mass production yachts on the market, is built in accordance with the strict standard rules of the Maxi Ocean Yachts. Yet it is principally at a structural level that Solaris boasts a unique feature that makes the yacht stiff, solid and stress-resistant: the main and the other structural bulkheads are built in composite, with a minimum of 40mm thickness and are...

On all Solaris the many critical points for the loads that a sailing yacht is subjected to at sea are built with considerable safety margins. A sailing boat, in all her complexity, must exploit and support the forces generated by the flow of the two elements of differing density in which she is immersed: air and water. These forces can reach considerable intensity in proportion to the size of the yacht: for example the compression load of the mast is equal to the weight of the boat. Confronted with such stresses, Solaris set itself the primary objective of ensuring the non-deformation of the yacht and has identified the crucial points ensuring stiffness and non-deformation. In particular, the connection point between keel and hull and the mast base and the chainplates are the areas where stresses equal to the weight of...
