The Italian shipbuilder aims at to tackle the oil & gas crisis by diversifying its range of production

Rosetti Marino plans to develop a fleet of specially designed yachts.

Established in 1925, Rosetti engineers and constructs a wide range of commercial ships, from ocean-going tugs and platform supply vessels to passenger ferries.

The Ravenna-based group is quoted on the Milan stock exchange and comprises 18 companies with 9 branch offices and 1,200 employees and in 2016 registered turnover in excess of 213 million euro.

The shipyard appointed superyacht veteran Fulvio Dodich, who has held top management positions at Ferretti and Sanlorenzo, as partner and chairman of Rosetti Superyachts; the new division has a branch office in Monte Carlo to build luxury superyachts, long-range supply vessels and expedition yachts from 40m-150m.

Rosetti Marino is proposing ‘Made in Italy’ yachts designed and built to the highest technical and safety standards, having brought in the internationally renowned Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini to develop a fleet of concepts from 48m-85m. The first of these concepts is an 85m expedition supply vessel of 2,200GT with MTU main engines and propulsion systems supplied by Rolls Royce.

The yachts will be built at San Vitale shipyard in the Italian port of Ravenna that covers 240,000sq m including quays, berthage and a covered surface of 17,000sq m comprising two construction sheds of 25m x 100m each and a drydock of 160m x 25m, where 119 vessels from 40m to 140m were built.
