first inflatable craft ever built by the Alson company was inaugurated
in 1971 in Milan.
The company was once very small
and the director of it was Walter Falsoni, both owner and designer.
After seven years, on April 16 1978, W. Falsoni inaugurated the
first inflatable craft with a fibreglass keel ever built in Italy.

Since then many changes have
come along here at Alson: the main construction centre has been moved
to Osnago, a showroom has been opened in Milan and we have as many as
15 different models on the market from our little Pram 200 to the magnificent
and superb Charme 43.
Each model has its own original qualities
that only a company like Alson, which has kept its originality and
creativity throughout the years, can have. This means that everything
is still hand made in a secure and very efficient way but especially with
how: once the material is selected it stays in our warehouses for at least
4 months, which are beneficial for giving the material unique sturdiness
and resistance to abrasions: the more caoutchouc gets older the better
it gets. After it has been treated with sand-paper the material is glued
together manually. This is when another resting period, singular characteristic
for all Alson boats, begins. The tubulars are seasoned for three months
before being assembled to the keel, to guarantee a perfect air-pressure
stability in all temperatures. These procedures give our inflatable boats
all the constructive characteristics and the comfort that are totally
unique and unbeatable. The interior part of the keel, the living space,
is designed personally by Walter Falsoni to give enough stowage compartments
so that everything has its own space and each passenger has its
own safe and comfortable seat.
The external part of the keel is designed in a way
that even in adverse weather conditions passengers will not get wet by
unexpected splashes. Our boats can reach incredible speeds without batting
an eye and because of their unique keel design they are perfectly seaworthy
vessels giving you the possibility to make mistakes on turning excluding
the risk of flipping over.
The various accessories give Alson vessels every usage
possibility. They are definitely the kind of vessel you want when your
friends come along to relax, when the entertainment of special clients
has to be just perfect despite the weather, or when you and your mate
want to escape to beautiful creeks or beaches. We also give you the possibility
to personalize your boat by choosing its colour from standard grey
to white with blue or green finishings.
To finish off, whoever wants to delight oneself fishing, scuba-diving,
camping, water-skiing or just simply going for a ride through the waves
Alson vessels are ideal for whatever you want to do.
Alson uses only the best raw materials for the realization
of our vessels.
For the construction of the tubulars only PENNEL &
FLIPOI and AERAZUR materials are used and special bonding of neophrene
and hypalon give our material guaranteed resistance against atmospheric
agents, aging and hydrocarbons.
