Lorenzo Argento, has been actively involved with sailing since the age of 12 having had first sailing experiences on Lake Garda. Lorenzo, a deep passionate into every aspect of design, graduated in Yacht & Boat Design at the Southampton College of Higher Education.

After a year working at SP, he moved back to Italy in 1987 to join Luca Brenta to found, two years later, studio Associato Luca Brenta. Timing was perfect….as the first project with Luca, Lorenzo was involved with the Two Ton Admiral’s Cupper “Marisa”.

In 1989 the first Wallygator was commissioned by Luca Bassani which started a long relationship with Wally Yachts. The second Wallygator (first ever 100ft built in carbon fibre) soon was followed by other racing yachts and further projects for Wally, including Wally B and Kenora.

A further milestone was project Ghost, a very innovative project built by Vitters for a prominent American client. In the 2000 decade, several collaborations included a Nautor 76 built in Finland, a 74ft built at Yachting Development in NZ and the design of yet another milestones for our office, both in terms of innovations and technology, the 100ft sailing yacht Chrisco built for by CNB.

In 2005 the first of a new breed of daysailors, the B38 was launched together with B Yachts (a limited company owned by Luca, Lorenzo and Maurizio Testuzza). To date, nearly 100 B yachts have been sold between 30 and 60ft. From 2010 the office is also involved in the design of power displacement vessel called Logica ranging from 98ft to 147ft built in Viareggio.
