Rosetti Marino enters superyacht market


Italian commercial shipbuilder Rosetti Marino is entering into the superyacht market with a new subsidiary – Rosetti Superyachts.

Rosetti Marino specialises in constructing custom-built, offshore and onshore oil and gas vessels, tug boats and ferries. Rosetti Superyachts will focus on designing luxury superyachts, long-range supply vessel and expedition yachts ranging from 40 metres to 150 metres.

Fulvio Dodich, veteran chief exec of yacht builders Ferretti and Sanlorenzo, will be heading up the new company as partner and chairman. The company will be based in Monte Carlo and the yachts constructed at Rosetti’s San Vitale shipyard.

Dodich said: “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.

“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.”

First steps

Rossetti Superyachts’ first concept is an 85-metre expedition supply vessel. It comes in at 2,200 GT and is powered by two Rolls-Royce MTU engines.

The unnamed vessel will be available in two deck arrangements with a central or aft helipad. The version pictured above includes a fully certified helideck above the owners area aft.

Dodich brought Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini on board to help design this yacht and future vessels in the 48-85 metre range.

Dodich is in “advanced negotiations” with prospective buyers for the 85-metre vessel and unannounced Rosetti Superyacht concepts.
