Born in Colombia from a Colombian mother and an Italian father, Carlos grew up in Brazil where he started building his first cruising catamarans and Class A 18-footers in the family shipyard "Indiana Nautica." After working for some time in the Caribbean, he moved to Italy in 2007, working first for the "Indiana Yachting" shipyard in Grosseto, then for "Maxspar" in Genoa, and finally for "Persico Marine," where he was involved in the construction of important projects (Volvo Ocean Race, TP 52, Maxi 72, Wally). That of 2024 will be his second America's Cup, again with Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli. In his spare time, he mountaineers, climbs, hikes, and also loves to travel.
