Alessandro Mazzoni began his career at a very young age in the early 1980s, working first in the Nautor OY yard and then later at the Alpa Yachts yard. In 1984, he and his lifelong friends and partners, Carlo Agliardi and Antonio Pozzi, founded Italyachting. He then acquired Fraser Yachts in 1993 which he turned into a large global brokerage brand it remains today. As a partner in Fraser Yachts, he managed the charter broker team in Europe and the US, opening new offices in London, Milan, Athens and Palma del Mallorca. He also acted as a Sale Broker, closing the company’s biggest sales in Europe. In 2012, after Fraser Yacht was sold to the Azimut Benetti Group, Alessandro founded Sos Yachting Italy. As its CEO, he developed its presence in France and Monaco, Croatia, Spain and Italy also. Alex has a huge love of classic and vintage yachts, making him a touchstone for all the leading Italian sector associations and clubs, not least Asdec and the Yacht Club de Monaco.
