Rosetti Marino Group starts building large yachts
Italian player in the new construction of high-tech vessels
Established in 1925, Rosetti Marino SpA is a global leader in the engineering and construction of a wide range of commercial ships from ocean-going tugs and platform supply vessels to passenger ferries, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for propulsion, automation, navigational aids and control systems. The company has established a global reputation for its highly efficient, custom-built vessels, for respecting delivery times and for its effective post-delivery support.
Fulvio Dodich, a veteran executive in the superyacht industry who has held top management positions with brands such as Ferretti and Sanlorenzo, is a partner in and Chairman of Rosetti Superyachts, the new division with a branch office in Monte Carlo that aims to draw on the Group’s extensive shipbuilding heritage to build luxury superyachts, long-range supply vessels and expedition yachts from 40m to 150m.
To execute this plan, Dodich has brought in the internationally renowned Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini to develop a fleet of concepts from 48m to 85m. The first of these concepts is an 85m expedition supply vessel of 2,200GT with MTU main engines and propulsion systems supplied by Rolls Royce. Available in two deck arrangements with central or aft helipad, the renders display the version with a fully certified helicopter deck above a dedicated owner’s area aft. The helipad and forward superstructure are connected by a central gangway with deck space in between for storing large tenders and toys.
