The Italian shipbuilder Rosetti Marino, who specialises in the construction and engineering of offshore supply vessels, ocean-going tugboats and passenger ferries, has today announced that it will enter the superyacht sector.
Under the management of Chairman Fulvio Dodich, no stranger to the superyacht industry with past management position at Ferretti and Sanlorenzo, Rosetti superyachts will draw on its shipbuilding and engineering skills to offer clients a range of luxury superyachts, longer-range supply vessels as well as expedition yachts measuring up to 150 metres in length.
The Group employs some 1,200 people across 18 companies. Its San Vitale shipyard in Ravenna covers a total area of 24,000 square metres with a 160mx25m dry dock. The Rosetti Superyachts brand will be stationed in Monte Carlo.
“We took the decision to launch this initiative based on Rosetti Marino’s remarkable experience, solid financial background and exceptional facilities to create a series of high-level superyachts with semi-custom or fully customisable identities, as well as providing technical excellence and innovative solutions,” says Dodich. “We are proposing Made in Italy yachts that are designed and built to the highest technical and safety standards that distinguish the whole Rosetti Marino Group of companies.”
Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini has been tasked with creating a preliminary concept fleet of vessels between 48 metres and 85 metres in length. A first look at an 85-metre project was released today with more details about this model and the rest of the Rosetti range being revealed later this month at a press meeting in Milan.
