Charter catamaran Sagittarius is a very special build commanded by a very passionate Captain. This luxury Privilege 65 sailing yacht launched in 1995 from the prestigious French shipyard, Jeantot Marine. Her original owner had underworld connections. Her original Captain followed a course of deception. Eventually, as a ward of the Italian courts, she was virtually abandoned. Piervittorio came to the rescue and lovingly restored Sagittarius to emerge as a seaworthy beauty.
Piervittorio Trebucchi greets you with a sparkle in his eyes. You sense right off that your charter aboard Sagittarius will be superb. Piero, or Peter in English, was born in Brescia, Italy. He grew up in Desenzano, on Lake Garda, the perfect place for a boy to learn to sail. He had a natural talent for catching the wind, which earned him racing trophies in local sailing club competitions and fueled his sailing passion.
When Piero entered the university to attain an engineering degree he was forced to take a racing hiatus. After graduation he resumed racing in various categories. He also became a successful entrepreneur, first in computing, and subsequently in the field of environmental technology in consumer electronics eco-sustainability.
Piero came in third overall in his first transatlantic race. He sailed the Transat des Alizes, from Portugal to Guadeloupe, in the 60-foot Open category. This event was the catalyst for years spent crossing the world’s oceans and exploring new and exciting ports of call. In 2012 he skillfully commanded Sagittarius in the transatlantic regatta (ARC), coming in first in the Open category, and getting the sixth fastest time among 230 participating boats.
Sailing is Piero’s number one passion. But he is also accomplished at other adrenaline-infused sports from free-ride skiing to scuba diving to auto racing on asphalt, ice and even the sands of the Sahara. His hobbies include reading books, especially comic books, and listening to jazz, soul, classical and classic rock. And of course, as a typical Italian, he is a connoisseur of great food and fine wine.
Piero has cruised with family, friends and yacht charter guests throughout the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. His two beautiful little girls have grown up aboard sailing yachts. He can boast life-long friends the world over. He loves being a Captain and sharing his enthusiasm for the Caribbean islands’ most beautiful moorings, folklore and local culture.
Charter catamaran Sagittarius is a testament to Piero’s engineering skill and environmental innovations. The yacht features green energy through photovoltaic panels and wind generators. Piero has realized a dream, successfully merging his passion for sailing and his eco-engineering acuity into his livelihood. Great reason for a sparkle in the eyes!
