Mondo Marine wins bid to acquire historic shipyard

Mondo Marine wins bid to acquire historic shipyard

Italian superyacht builder Mondo Marine has won the bid to take over the historic Cantieri di Pisa shipyard and will immediately acquire the yard and its assets.

Cantieri di Pisa was offered up for bid by the court of La Spezia, Italy, and the top bidder was Mondo Marine. Cantieri di Pisa’s history dates back to 1945 in Limite sull’Arno, and the current yard in Darsena Pisana was built in 1956.

It was only a few years ago that the equally historic shipyard Mondo Marine was sold to mergers and acquisition specialist – and current owner – Alessandro Falciai.

Mondo Marine will now acquire Cantieri di Pisa’s assets, which include the 12,000 square metre yard, 6,000 square metres of warehouses and facilities, and six yachts that are currently under construction. Mondo Marine will also absorb Cantieri di Pisa’s labour force, which numbers 33 employees.

Mondo Marine plans to enhance the capacity and skills of the staff at its new yard, which will focus on building semi-displacement, aluminium yachts that are 30 metres LOA and larger, expanding the builder's offerings. Mondo Marine currently build motor yachts more than 40 metres LOA.

According to Alessandro Falciai, Chairman and Owner of Mondo Marine, the acquisition is part of Mondo Marine’s larger strategy to develop Mondo Marine, which aims to be a leader in large-yacht construction.

“I am very proud of the success achieved [with the acquisition]”, Alessandro Falciai says. “It is the best way to celebrate this year the centenary of Cantieri Navali Campanella, our production site in Savona."
