From 1978, under the leadership of Cesare Sangermani Jr., the construction of hulls using advanced composite materials began at the Lavagna-based yard. This involves the use of so-called “exotics”, such as epoxy resin, glass fiber, aluminum honeycomb, Kevlar, carbon fiber and Nomex, the avant-garde materials of today.

The quality of the materials used, many of them from the aerospace industry, and the continuous research into technological innovation based on experimental methods, exemplify the search for perfection, which extends to the smallest details of equipment and construction. This has resulted in unique yachts of superlative performance, as have been demonstrated by victories won in the most important sailing events, from the Giraglia to the Mediterranean championship.

Thanks to important collaborations with some of the leading experts in the field, from Luca Olivari to Eng. Fabio Buzzi, some experimental prototypes were launched both sail and motor.

Guia 2000 of Giorgio Falk, was built in 1979 designed by German Frers, she won the Giraglia in 1979 and 1983, was Mediterranean champion for two consecutive years and in 1985 with Pierre Sicouri and Paolo Pozzolini, won the Brooklyn Cup, the transatlantic race in two.

Articolo V, built in 1980, a boat design very close to the "monocoque" concept, was made of a sandwich in Kevlar and airspace balsa.

Flash, runner-up at the 1984 World Offshore Class II and Class III Italian offshore champion in 1986.

Rolly Go and Otto Volante, the first catamaran built by Sangermani were launched in 1981.

The experimental techniques, from W.E.S.T. System (applied in many Sangermani Yachts since 1986 such as Secondo Pensiero, Dalu, Luja and Wallygator) to the Xilon 3OOO3 system (applied since 2004), have led to the implementation of advanced materials combined with traditional construction methods, contributing to the process of natural modernization of the shipyard.
