IBI Plus, Superyacht Business’ sister news and market intelligence service, has reported details regarding Logica Yachts expansion plans. Logica Yachts, a relatively new Italian superyacht builder, has just launched a 45m (148ft) vessel.
The shipyard’s owners and shareholders have decided to expand their operation by moving from a rented site to buying its own yacht build facility in Viaraeggio, Italy. The firm has now moved to the new facility and is planning two new models. Logica will now be able to construct yachts up to 55m (181ft).
The new yard extends to 2,000sq m, and comprises a production area of 50m x 24m x 14.4m (164ft x 78ft x 48ft), two covered warehouses, a large canteen and a large office area extending to 350sq m and including two meeting rooms.
The build hall will be fitted with a double girder crane with capacity up to 15 tonnes, plus a lifting crane able to move loads of 1.5 tonnes up to 14m. The facility does not have direct water access but the dock is just 25m away.
Logica employs a core team of 10 people, and the two new yacht designs in development are due for launch in a few months’ time. The new designs are of 37m and 47m. No more details are available at present.
The 45m yacht is currently up for sale with an asking price of €19.5m. The yacht offers accommodation for 12 guests in a VIP suite, and two double and single cabins plus two Pullmans for two extra guests.
The superyacht has naval architecture by Luca Brenta and is powered by MAN engines providing a cruising speed of 15kt and a full speed of 17.4kt.
