MANUFACTURER’S COMMENTS:

Launched in the wake of the success of the 51 S , the Comet 45 S reflects same general design principles and style. The hull was designed specifically with the idea of improving performance. The bow and stern are both vertical to increase the waterline length. The bow sections are very slender. The craft’s high freeboards mean that the deckhouse could be kept low and compact. It also boasts characteristic “loop hole” windows. A medium to light displacement translates in to excellent performance with a full cruising load. The deck offers wide gangways and a very large cockpit that extends all the way to the open transom. The interior layout is quite particular: the central position of the head allows for great freedom in organising the saloon without interfering in any way with the clean exterior lines.

MANUFACTURER’S BACKGROUND:

Comar, under the name of Sipla, began its activity by producing fibreglass Flying Juniors in 1961 in Forlì, Italy. In those days plastic production was at its beginning and was a pioneering enterprise, so much so that to type-approve the first boat the company resorted to a stratagem: the hull was painted brown, fake wood veins were added and the sailboat was brought to a shipyard well known for its classic line.

Rina engineers (the validating agency) were shown the small vessel and kindly asked for type-approval. The officials were busy analyzing a much more important boat and didn’t really stop to consider the “little jewel” in fake wood. By validating the prototype the unaware engineers gave birth to a company that then after produced more than 4500 boats.

Sipla grew rapidly laying the foundation for popular boating in Italy: Van de Stadt’s small and habitable Meteor gave all Italians an easily manageable sailboat. The true revolution took place in 1971 with the Comet 910.

The boat was designed by Van de Stadt and a very young Finot; she was so innovative and above the lines that on the eve of her launch, with the boat already registered to take part in the Middle Sea Race, both designers called Sipla to disown authorship. The rest is history. The Comet 910 beat the whole fleet hands down, humbling much bigger and prestigious boats. The commercial success was immediate and long lasting: almost 1000 units were produced in a 15 year time span. Thanks to the Comet 910 Sipla was able to build new plants, the most leading edge technology factories at that time, and prepared the field for new models. After 10 years of experience the company decided to change its name to Comar and cemented its collaboration with yacht designer Finot, solidifying its success.

Ground breaking sailboats were born which were immediately welcomed by the boating community. The Comet 801, Comet 11, Comet 13 and Comet 14 were all characterized by unprecedented solutions even as far as the interiors were concerned with the salon moved to the far stern. On the water the boats were fast and comfortable, offering cutting edge deck solutions for those years like genoa and mainsail furlers and affordable pricing. In the 80s Comar’s designer team included Finot, Doug Peterson and Andrea Vallicelli. New performing and roomy boats were built with traditional waterlines but in tune with the times.

Many Comet owners decided to take part in the races of those days achieving great results. At this point Comar was well on its way in becoming Italy’s most important sailboat producer while at the same time exporting a significant number of units. In 1989 it covered an area of 43000 square meters of which 16000 covered, producing 145 boats with 160 employees and a 25 billion lira turnover. The same year the Comet 333 was chosen as the boat for the first edition of Giro d’Italia a Vela (a race circumnavigating Italy). In the 90s Comar introduced two new models: the thirteen meter Genesis 43 and the fifteen meter Phoenix, both encountering great success, so much so that they are still much sought after on the used market. The two models represented a radical change in the production line, aiming to improve quality in all sectors. New and for the time ultramodern techniques were adopted: termanto or balsa sandwich and vacuum lamination. Comar also began producing racing one-offs like Stradivario, designed by Vallicelli that won four consecutive editions of the Centomiglia del Garda.

The economic crisis at the end of the 90s affected many businesses in the nautical industry and, notwithstanding the success of the latest models, Comar was not left unscathed. Comar’s new course started in 1998 when Massimo Guardigli buys the name and technology. With the current leadership the company set new objectives. The market in the meanwhile had evolved in an unforeseeable direction which led some boatyards to mass produce select models in a price war context. The giant industrial groups bulldozed those that attempted to compete in the extreme mechanization field. This process though eventually led to a progressive quality impoverishment due to an time excessive oversimplification of the production line. In this scenario a renewed Comar pinpointed a niche in the nautical sector: the refusal of a overly standardized offer went hand in hand with the search of a personalized and high quality product which rejected the notion of a “disposable good”.

The challenge was deeply shared by all the levels of the company, from top management to the production line and dealership: to offer high quality, seaworthy and sturdy boats at a truly competitive price. The first models followed the path that had been previously left. The Comet 38, Comet 50 and Comet 65, designed by Bruce Farr and Comar’s first Maxi, came alongside to the Genesis 43. Soon after the Neapolitan yacht designer Sergio Lupoli drew two new models, the Comet 33 and the Comet 36, elegant and performing boats that reaped great successes in numerous international racing events. Once again Comet’s style and quality level was about to undergo another pivotal change. Andrea Vallicelli and Alessandro Nazareth presented a revolutionary and apparently risky design: the Comet 51 Sport, an aggressive cruiser-racer. The public’s and reviewers’ approval was immediate, thereby encouraging Comar in further infrastructure investments. The entire range was updated with the 45S and the 41S that shared the 51S’s spirit. All boats which are much loved by the owners for their design, high quality and that in the past years have confirmed excellent performances by winning many prestigious international trophies. Lately the “deck salon” models have had more and more success: the raised deckhouse and large windows make the interiors particularly luminous. Comar taps into this and creates the “Raised Salon” line which combines the functionality of a deckhouse to very sporty lines.
