Victor Insetta

Owner, President

Victor is originally from Brooklyn, NY where he attended Brooklyn Technical High School. It was there that he learned not only academics, but also hands on craftsmanship. He attended Brooklyn College with twin majors in Physics and Economics. He later founded American Technical Ceramics (ATC) in 1964 with an initial investment of $100. He grew ATC into a 100 million dollar company that produced micro-miniature microwave components and circuits for space probes, satellites, 3G infrastructure, missiles, and medical applications. These components outperformed the competition in function, efficiency and reliability. When he sold ATC in 2007 he began to cruise extensively in the Atlantic, Pacific and Mediterranean waters on both large motor yachts and sailboats. He also owned several deep-v, tunnel hulls and performance catamarans; as well as building several hulls to meet his specific requirements and to satisfy his “need for speed!” Having a passion for speed since the age of 15, when he built his first racing boat, he wanted to blend the performance of an offshore racing hull with the functionality of an open deck design. With these two aspects of boating in mind, he set out to create a comfortable, rugged, efficient, go-fast center console catamaran that would be at home both inshore and offshore. Victor also enjoys diving in the Bahamas and taking people fishing and exploring which requires the boat to have unprecedented efficiency and range. With all of these aspects in mind, the Insetta 45 was born! Victor now lives in Jacksonville, Florida and enjoys cruising on his Insetta 45 in the islands when he is not at Insetta Boatworks working on his latest innovation.
