Fondazione Altagamma's yacht association Nautica Italiana doubles members

Fondazione Altagamma's yacht association Nautica Italiana doubles members

Nautica Italiana, the independent yachting association launched by 25 of Italy’s leading nautical manufacturers in October, has announced its membership has doubled in the three months since launch.

This is encouraging news for the association which was set up with the aim of bringing together firms from across Italy's yachting sector in order to develop the country's nautical industry and spark growth both at home and internationally.

Nautica Italiana was launched in affiliation with Fondazione Altagamma, an Italian association which seeks to promote the country’s top-quality luxury fashion, jewellery, food and hospitality markets, making it the perfect partner for the high end superyacht sales and building industry.

Speaking at the association's first general meeting in Viareggio, Lamberto Tacoli, chairman of Nautica Italiana, said, "The Association is currently reviewing a number of applications, and we are proud to welcome the new brands that have chosen Nautica Italiana and its project. The constant interest from various parties in our programme confirms the need for new stimuli and new activities for the industry. I am particularly pleased to be able to state that after a quarter of intense work following the launch of the association, we can now look forward to a future with an equal wealth of initiatives, proposals and work together.”

Members at the meeting also unanimously approved the association's strategic 'Nautica 365' programme which seeks to develop Italy's already impressive global standing in the superyacht industry on a long term basis. The programme combines new legislative proposals which will support the growth of the industry with a calendar of national and international events and an ethical contract ensuring the responsibility and transparency of all its members.
