Mondomarine takes over Cantieri di Pisa

Mondomarine spa has announced the acquisition of Cantieri di Pisa. The history of Cantieri di Pisa begun in 1945 in Limite sull’Arno and in 1956 the company moved to Darsena Pisana with a view to built larger boats.

Mondomarine, which produces superyachts over 40 metres, has won the call for bids established by the Court of La Spezia. To be acquired are the trademarks of the shipyard, warehouses and facilities and the six superyachts currently under construction.

Thanks to the acquisition 33 employees are back at work at Cantieri di Pisa. As per the agreement, all the concessions, that include 12,000 square metres of land, 6,000 square metres of warehouses and 800 square metres of basin will be revoked and immediately reassigned to Mondomarine.

Alessandro Falciai, Chairman and Owner of Mondomarine, declared: “I am very proud of the success achieved. I am sure the quality of a business plan, which also includes the enhancement of capacity and skills of employees in force at the shipyards and linked industries has been recognised. The operation is part of the strategy of development of Mondomarine, which aims to leadership in the field of high-end yachts. Precisely in this sense the historical line of Cantieri di Pisa, Akhir, will be redirected towards the production of high quality, semi-displacement, aluminium yachts from 30 metres and up. It is the best way - added Falciai - to celebrate this year the centenary of Cantieri Navali Campanella, our production facility in Savona."
