Rosetti to build new facility for 100m superyachts
Rosetti Superyachts (RSY) is expanding its facilities to accommodate construction of 100m-plus superyachts. RSY has obtained planning approval from local authorities for an improvement to its current facility the San Vitale shipyard in Ravenna, northern Italy.
Ermanno Bellettini, CEO of RSY, said: “Rosetti Superyachts is about to make a further important investment that will reinforce the brand as a reference point in the construction of explorer-style yachts in steel and aluminium starting from 35m.
“In order to expand, we need another construction shed that allows us to build larger yachts than the one we already have. The investment is testament to the strategic vision of the entire Rosetti Marino Group and our commitment to increase the size range of our product offering.”
The plans include the construction of a new shed (120 x 32m x 30m) equipped for large yachts and an adjacent building dedicated to the various stages of outfitting. There will be an area for carpentry on the first floor, a showroom where mock-ups will be displayed on the second floor, and offices reserved for the owner’s team on the third floor.
RSY was established in 2017 primarily to focus on the market for expedition yachts and supply-style vessels. The Italian shipyard said the new plant and buildings will work with the existing production facilities where a 38m explorer, designed by Hydro Tec, is already under construction and due for delivery in 2021. At present, the overall area of the San Vitale on Italy’s Adriatic coast covers 70,000 square meters and is equipped with a dry dock that is 180m long and 27m wide.
