Italian superyacht yard VSY (Viareggio Superyachts) has named Cristiana Longarini as the group’s new managing director.

The appointment follows the stepping down of Luciano Scaramuccia after completing the task of assisting the shipyard through a generational transition.

VSY has the capacity to build vessels up to 80m in length. Notable launches include the 62m Espen Oeino-designed CandyScape II in 2008, followed by the 62m RoMa in 2010 and the 72m Stella Maris in 2011.
