Steamship Maria-Cristina at the yard

As Italian yacht builder Mondomarine celebrates its 100-year anniversary, we take a look back at the yard's stunning past – as well as its present superyacht launches and promising future.

Mondomarine yachts are built at the historic Campanella Caniteri Navali S.p.A. shipyard in Savona, which has been active in vessel repair and construction since 1915. In the beginning, the company employed about 50 people - mostly highly skilled mechanics, welders and carpenters.
