Tecnorib began life in 2005, with a mission to design, build and distribute a new range of inflatable boats. For that purpose, Tecnorib entered into a trademark license agreement with Pirelli & C. SpA to apply the most prestigious trademarks of the Pirelli Group on these new inflatable boats .
It wasn’t a simple challenge to elevate a product regarded until then as ‘minor’, in such a way as to reflect the prestige of a brand that is a synonym for quality and safety, as well as for performance and style. The first product launched, the 770 EFB, made its debut at the Pirelli Regattas in Santa Margherita Ligure, in May 2006.
Over the next ten years, the range was extended up to the PIRELLI 1400, which soon became an icon of style and performance. In 2015, the range of tenders was introduced to offer the most demanding yacht owners an inflatable boat featuring the same production excellence found in larger projects.
Starting from 2017 the relationship between Tecnorib and Pirelli is managed within the Pirelli Design project, whose goal, in line with the focus of Pirelli Group on the Prestige and Premium car segments, is to increase the equity of the PIRELLI brand by developing specific design projects to offer unique, iconic and one-of-a-kind products.
September of the same year saw the presentation of the new flagship PIRELLI 1900, redefining the boundaries in this sector.
Today, Tecnorib has the same mission: to offer demanding, expert owners inflatable boats in the range 3 to 19 meters, built entirely in Italy and featuring high performance, maximum quality and fine design.
