Malgara, an accomplished racing driver who has worked in advertising, marketing and the police force and who remains a successful real estate businessman, would want to buy a shipyard and start a new yacht brand.
“I bought it because I couldn’t find a yard with the quality I wanted,” Malgara explained during two days spent together testing the Ice 60 and visiting his two shipyards near Milan.
“I tried to improve what the good workers already knew very well, adding my knowledge of sailing and building racing cars.”
“The difference between something nice and something well done is important,” said Malgara, who competed six times in the notorious endurance motorsport event the Paris-dakar
Rally. “When you are in the desert and something goes wrong, you’re in the shit… the same applies with boats.”
Malgara, a workaholic who lives and drives in the fast lane, “wanted to create a product that was not available. A yacht to be proud of.”
Ice 60 features a long waterline and powerful hull shape: a soft chine gives extra beam with minimal drag
