THE SECRET FORMULA
In the mid-nineteenth century, Giuseppe Moravia invents a secret formula for “protective grease for ship hulls” and entrusts production and marketing to his son-in-law, Gioachino Veneziani.
VENEZIANI S.A. IS FOUNDED
In Trieste in 1863, Gioachino Veneziani launches “Fabbrica Vernici e Intonaci Sottomarini Gioachino Veneziani S.A.”
LLOYD’S AND THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVY
The new coating was so effective in preventing the spread of algae and other weeds that it was immediately applied to all the Lloyd’s ships that passed through the port of Trieste, and was later successfully adopted by various navies, first and foremost the British Royal Navy.
FIRST PRODUCTION FACILITY IN THE UK
Through this, Gioachino Veneziani was able to open the first factory for antifouling coatings abroad in Chatan, England. The factory was managed by Ettore Schmitz, the son-in-law of the founder, better known by his pen name; Italo Svevo.
THE WORLD-LEADING UNDERWATER PAINT
Very quickly, Veneziani’s antifouling hull coating gains a global reputation as the “world-leading underwater paint”.
PARTNER OF AZZURRA
Veneziani becomes the supplier and primary sponsor of Azzurra, the first Italian team to participate in the America’s Cup, the most prestigious global sailing competition.
VENEZIANI YACHTING AND THE GRUPPO BOERO
Exceptional quality has remained the defining feature throughout the ongoing evolution of Veneziani Yachting, which has become a leading brand in the Yachting Division of the Gruppo Boero since the early 2000s.
SPEEDY CARBONIUM: THE ANTIFOULING OF CHAMPIONS
Speedy Carbonium is launched, the antifouling solution that supports all the leading sailors. Designed for regatta boats, with a high concentration of carbon that guarantees enhanced performance.
THE VENEZIANI PROGRAM IS LAUNCHED
Veneziani Yachting is increasingly active in the DIY market, which is why it has created the VENEZIANI PROGRAM. This includes a range of services designed to offer the highest level of support to all maritime and sailing enthusiasts.
A 150-YEAR PASSION
is what drives Veneziani Yachting to continue to research new technologies to meet its clients’ needs and support their passion for the sea while protecting the environment and working hand-in-hand with the local community.
This great adventure, that began with the creation of the first antifouling paint, continues today with the development of increasingly effective and resistant products, thanks to the continued investment in research.
Combining the experience of a glorious heritage with a gaze fixed firmly on the future of the sector, the top priority of Veneziani Yachting is our relationship with our clients, ensuring we are always meeting their needs.
Achieving this goal means constantly experimenting and developing new tools, to offer the boating community best-in-class products for looking after their boats themselves. Our desire is to help them to choose the best solutions to protect and decorate their boat, supporting them on every step of the way to prevent lapses in memory or mistakes in the various steps of the painting process.
In some cases, the best solution is naturally to turn to a professional or to a suitably-equipped boatyard. Veneziani Yachting also provides tools that are indispensable for industry professionals.
They chose us
It's a good feeling to have a high quality brand like Veneziani on board my boat. When you think of antifouling paints, "Veneziani" immediately springs to mind. I keep Speedy Carbonium on my Mini 6.50. It's excellent for racing boats - it stays smooth, and is also a great antifouling paint for when you have to keep the boat on dry land.

In highly competitive events like the Mini Transat you need to choose the best products you can find. I have known about Speedy Carbonium for a long time and have always been impressed by its antifouling properties and the finish it gives. When I got in touch with Veneziani, they responded immediately with a visit to EdiliziAcrobatica and carried out some testing of new compounds.

Veneziani products have allowed us to have a lighter, much faster and much more efficient boat with less drag. Competing around the world gives me the opportunity to meet other teams and discuss technical issues. We often disagree about various products and materials, but when it comes to paints there is one name on which we all agree: Veneziani. Its products cater for every need, and since they are the first choice for us sportsmen, we also have them on our cruise ships, where certain Veneziani products make a big difference. Thank you Veneziani for your willingness to join us in seeking new challenges, with increasingly innovative high-performance products.
