Our team

Enrico Michel

I'm Enrico, sailor ever since. First with Optimist, then on Cadet, FJ, 470, J24, Tornado, coming up to Snipe in 1986 and more recently to Dinghy 12'. 10 times Italian Snipe Champion, I achieved severeal goals in various International events too. I set up DB Marine in 2007 aiming at becoming a reality strongly specialised in “dinghies”. I'm involved in the production, planning and technical development. You can find me at the major races at your disposal for advices and much more, in italian, english or even better in “triestin”!

Daniela Bonini

I'm Daniela. After more than 20 years in logistics and forwarding, in 2009 I joined my husband Enrico in DB Marine, bringing my experience in this field. I'm involved in logistics, administration and backoffice. I will be glad to reply to you in italian, portuguese, english, french and spanish. Later or sooner I will become a sailor too...


Sergio Michel

Sergio was my father, the one who taught me to be a sailor and a man above all. Without his help and support I wouldn't had the possibility to start this activity. To him who first believed in me and in my dreams goes my thought and my thanks, today as much as yesterday.
