Cantiere Rossini Refit Shipyard Nears Extension Completion
by Olivia Michel
Winter has now fully arrived and for some sailors, that means swapping the high seas for the ski slopes. For superyacht owners planning to stay on shore until spring, now is the perfect time to refit your yacht – and Cantiere Rossini is happy to help.
Strategically located on Italy’s Adriatic Coast, Cantiere Rossini is a refit and service shipyard specifically designed to work on large yachts. From minor repairs to full refits, the Rossini shipyard can accommodate all the needs of owners, captains, managers and brokers eager to keep their superyachts in prime condition. The complex currently features nine operational berths and a sheltered front docking quay.
Yachts berthed at Cantiere Rossini can benefit from a wide variety of services including paintworks, equipment servicing, interior and exterior remodelling and installation of new air conditioning or bridge and entertainment systems on board. Most importantly, the mechanical, electronic and hydraulic parts on board any yacht can be expertly replaced or repaired at the Cantiere Rossini shipyard.
Since taking over the site of Cantiere Navale di Pesaro in 2015, the yard has been expanding its facilities non-stop. In just a short time, construction will be complete and Cantiere Rossini will be transformed into a state-of-the-art shipyard with luxury superyacht marina facilities. Customers can expect a large hardstanding area, numerous protected berths and a fully equipped gym. In the process to achieve this final outcome, Cantiere Rossini confirmed the installation of a new 560 tonne travel lift in July 2018 and was also awarded Large Yachts Maintenance certification in February 2019.
With construction ever closer to completion, Cantiere Rossini is already welcoming its first superyacht customers. 34.6 metre Alhena and 55 metre Lady Michelle have already been spotted at the yard since its opening, plus 47 metre Alalya received a full repaint there last Winter. Named after the region’s most famous local opera singer - Gioacchino Rossini – Cantiere Rossini aims to become the top refit yard on the Adriatic Coast and a convenient stop-off for the superyacht crowds.
