Cantiere Navale di Pesaro on Italy’s Adriatic coast has been converted into a refit shipyard for superyachts.

The site, now operating under the name Cantiere Rossini, was acquired by a group of investors late last year.

Investors have chosen the name after after the world-renowned Italian opera singer, Gioacchino Rossini, who was born in the city in the 19th Century.

The management team includes captain Stewart Parvin as CEO, shipyard director Alfonso Postorino, formerly responsible for the refit division of ISA Yachts, and operations manager Gianluca Devicienti.

New facilities

Cantiere Rossini

The 55m Benettti motoryacht Lady Michelle, the 40m Benetti Al-Bouchra and the 34m Admiral motoryacht Alhena arrived for service at Cantiere Rossini in August

Thanks to a €15m investment, a full restoration and reorganisation of the site has already started.

As part of the works, a sheltered dock with seven stern-to berths for yachts up to 55m is now available.

Just a few days after having positioned the new ground tackles, three yachts arrived at Cantiere Rossini’s dock for maintenance works over the summer season.

These are 55m Benettti motoryacht Lady Michelle, the 40m Benetti Al-Bouchra and the 34m Admiral motoryacht Alhena.

Berths are equipped with 400V, 250/125 amp shore power connections, fresh water and 24/7 security with CCTV cameras.

Strategic location

Strategically located on the Italian Adriatic coast, Cantiere Rossini offers a wide range of services, from minor repairs and routine maintenance to complete refit.

Cantiere Rossini has also announced that by the end of 2017, a state-of-the-art refit shipyard with 15,000sq m of hardstanding area and a 600-tonne travel lift will be operational.

The shipyard is expected to be completed by early 2018, with two paint sheds and 16 crew apartments overlooking the harbour.

The site will also have a separate building with bar, large gym, lounge and rooftop terrace.
