Tornado New Web Site

Italian Rome boat builder Tornado presents it's new World wide web showroom.  Tornado was founded by Carlo Marchiolo in 1968 building his 35 feet powerboat inspired to the US Cigarette's design. This boat will take Marchiolo to a Class 3 title just a few months later in 1969, and is followed with more Tornado wins in the seventies, of which the most significant is the Wills Trophy with Italian driver Vincenzo Balestrieri on the helm. The success on the race circuits makes Tornado produce boats for those desiring good sea handling, high performance, and comfort combined with a classic no frills lines. In 1977 during the Genoa boat show Marchiolo meets with renowned designer Tom Fexas, to whom Tornado commissions six new projects. The Fexas design works for Tornado are a 35 for the racing circuits, 36 Hawk, 39 Hawk, Eleven, 44 Express, and the 45. The nineties are followed by more winning success for Tornado, with famous offshore driver Adrianno Panatta taking the 1991 Venezia Monte Carlo with the 38, and again in 1997 with a 45. In 2007 after competition from various bank institutions, and three months of negotiations Michele Prestipino takes over Tornado. Prestipino era is marked by comfort improvements to the top selling 38 and the launch of a 50 model, and a 60 project which has not seen the light. In 2016 Tornado finds a new ownership with Daniele Parisi, three generations boat builder, and founder of the Parisi yard as the new owner. The ownership change continues the Tornado natural evolution of the brand and style and its over four hundred delivered boats. Today's current Tornado line offers five models from 38, to the upcoming 54.  Tornado latest model is the T-Rib 48 launched in the fall of 2020.  The new Tornado web site is available only in Italian language and takes you around with the following buttons; About Us, Models, Services, Tornado Club, Partners, and Contacts.  Tornado is also present in social media with a link at the bottom of the page taking you to its YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Linkedin pages.
