Luna Rossa prototype launch

Cagliari, October 13th, 2022 – The futuristic Luna Rossa Prototype, that will showcase the team’s return to on-water training, was launched today at 2 pm local time at the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli base. The sailing sessions with this boat will be essential for the crew but even more so for the research and development program that will lead to the design of the new AC75 with which the team will compete in the 37th America’s Cup in 2024 in Barcelona (Spain).

Miuccia Prada, godmother of the launch, smashed the traditional bottle on the bow of the boat, christening her Luna Rossa. Alongside her, Patrizio Bertelli (President of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team), Marco Tronchetti Provera (Executive Vice President and CEO of Pirelli), Max Sirena (Team Director and Skipper) and Agostino Randazzo (President of the Circolo della Vela Sicilia).

The Luna Rossa Prototype was conceived, designed and built at the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli base in compliance with the rules imposed by the 37th America’s Cup Protocol. The project is highly innovative and complex from an engineering and technological standpoint and encompasses experimental solutions in every area, with cutting edge technology in all materials.
