The shipyard takes advantage of a well-sheltered position, very strategic on the shore side. The location in such an important city like Genoa, the proximity to the cruising points and the airport just 15 minutes away represent an important reference point and a certainty for the crews, also in terms of daily life management.

Furthermore – Mr. Capitani continued – the shipyard has cutting-edge equipment, such as a ultra-modern 4,000 ton shiplift for yachts up to 95 meters, as well as professional and highly skilled internal workers”

In addition to vice president Maurizio Capitani, the meeting was attended by IYM secretary Manuel Mariotti and captains Francesco Schiano di Tunnariello, Omar Solari, Dario Lucon, Cristiano Schiano, Marco Figliomeni, Rosario Fortuna and Alessandro Flora.
