A leading shipyard for over 60 years
Comar is one of the historic brands in Italian boating, born in the 1960s in Forlì for the production of sailboats.
It was the first shipyard to produce a fiberglass boat: innovation was in its DNA.
In 1998 Massimo Guardigli and Flavia Proietti acquired the Comar brand and technology, which already had over five thousand boats sailing in the Mediterranean. The first boat that marked the new era of Comar, based in Rome, was the Genesis 43, and soon a new generation of sailboats with groundbreaking features was created, where modern and fast hull and deck lines blend with extremely comfortable interiors for long cruises.
From the collaboration with Studio Vallicelli and Alessandro Nazareth, the Comet 51S was born, a successful and appreciated model from which the entire line developed, which includes 11 models from the 35S to the 125RS, while the Comet Smart range was born from Sergio Lupoli's pencil: 21OD, 26S and 31S to complete the entire range of monohulls. The line is completed with 14 models from 21 to 125 feet, from the most sporty to the most spacious.
Comet boats are known and appreciated worldwide as cruising boats, comfortable, safe, and able to sail in any sea, but also fast.
Some owners start to attend regattas and the results are not long in coming. Comets become very popular on regatta fields all over the world, successfully competing in all the most important championships and the most challenging races in the world, while still being comfortable and suitable for sailing in any sea.
The Comet 100 RS is launched. The flagship of the Comar production. It is an ocean cruiser that sails between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean offering the maximum in terms of onboard hospitality and navigation quality. Like all Comets, it has a high degree of customization in the interiors and even today, after many years, it remains a boat with an unmistakable style.
The crisis and a rapidly changing scenario led the ownership of Comar to give another boost to their product range.
The adventure in the production of multihulls began with the goal of creating catamarans that add maneuverability and speed to the spacious interiors and exteriors.
With the collaboration of Marc Lombard, the C-Cat 37 was launched, and later the C-Cat 48, the C-Cat 64, and even larger models were developed, with the collaboration of Enrico Contreas, Francois Perus, and the Amadio Studio.
Comar continues production, gaining the approval of owners who continue to sail on monohulls and those who have chosen catamarans for their cruises, thus paving the way for the new generation.
As the first C-Cat 65 is about to be launched, Amerigo Guardigli becomes increasingly present in the shipyard, personally overseeing all construction phases and managerial aspects of the entire operation.
