To be able to move through protected ecosystems, where motor navigation is forbidden, to stimulate a tourism and commerical sector, which has long been at a standstill in terms of innovation and development, and to promote a new, additional kind of eco-friendly tourism, these are just some of the propellers that have started this ambitious project.
The main goal is to transform a passive group of boats docked at a pier, into an active self-sustaining crusing range: founded in 2010 by Alberto Pozzo and Alessio Zanolli, GardaSolar is a young, dynamic company operating in the nautical sector which builds and sells a zero environmental impact watercraft: the GOGO.
We prefer to take care of all details personally: from the concept to implementation, through to production. We aim to improve our products constantly, making them more efficient, performing and technological. GardaSolar arises from our technical and engineering expertise in the field of environmentally sustainable mobility, and we strive to develop this project more and more each day.
The Gardasolar philosophy constantly steers the company towards choices that reduce the environmental impact of the production process and towards the ever-growing possibility of product recycling.
The navigation experience with a GardaSolar craft can be summed up in three words: simple and enjoyable. You will be amazed by the silence of the electric motor and the ease of steering using the innovative joystick.
The special design of the structure and the careful choice of materials ensure solid and robust GardaSolar crafts. This translates into stability during navigation and reduction in maintenance costs.
Our production facility is located in Rovereto, and this is where our ideas take shape and come to life: we produce our products with patience and expertise, choosing materials featuring cutting-edge, eco-friendly technology. Over the years, a strong balance has been established among our staff, which allows us to be strong and competitive in the market.
