The Founder

Captain Raffaele Rognoni, master IMO 3000GT, has been at sea for almost 40 years. Attending sailing institutes since the age of eight in Italy (his country of origin), he developed a passion for sailing as a young child, which would determine his career path. He spent his life on
boats ever since, gaining experience on both sailing and motorboats of various sizes.
By collaborating with important shipyards and brands, he developed refined skills in project management and consultation, as well as technical expertise in engineering. He arrived to perform his work on boats of over 40 meters, as well as working as a consultant for companies of high significance in the nautical industry. After moving to Dubai, he established Portofino Marine Services- an assistance centre for leading brands in the nautical sector, a boat servicing centre, and installation assistance for companies of important nautical accessories.

“SaturaStudio” is a young designers team founded in 2018 by Alberto Frulla, Federica Fino and Francesco Viola.
The partnership started during the master in “Yacht Design” at the University of Genova and Politecnico of Milano where they won the MYDA award in the “New Project” category with “M/Y Tuxedo”.

The team’s work is focused on “Yacht Design” and “Interior Design” and involves the whole design process, from the concept to the construction. STS develops tailor-made design projects for new construction and refit, from 5 to 50 meters. The team’s purpose is to build a close connection with the customer trying to understand his tastes, his needs and his passions and involving him in the design process from the first sketches to the final proposal.

The experimentation through digital technologies such as augmented reality and 3d printing allows to increase the customer experience and to offer innovative and interesting design solutions.
Our goal is to connect the inspiration that comes from different scenarios like art, nature, sea, fashion
and car design to the functionality of the product making a connection between interior space and exterior line that can be the perfect balance between aesthetic and functionality.

SaturaStudio team up with well-known Italian Shipyards such as Cantiere del Pardo, Cayman Yachts, Lusben Benetti, Scanner Marine and Tornado Yachts as well as International Shipyards and brokers such as Portofino Marine and Floating Life International.
STS design is the finest compromise between shape, function and feelings.
