New CEO at Sanlorenzo

ADVERTISEMENT

Fulvio Dodich has been appointed new CEO of Italian boatbuilder Sanlorenzo.



In 2002, Dodich became CEO of Ferretti Yachts, Mochi Craft and Custom Line. In 2006, he became managing director of Ferretti Spa, the Ferretti Group’s holding company. Since 2008, he has been an acquisition consultant.



In a statement, Dodich said he plans an aggressive approach to grown, including new models and the strengthening and enlargement of the dealer network, especially in emerging markets in China and Latin America.



Chairman Massimo Perotti said his company’s focus the past year has been expansion through the acquisition of new shipyards.



In other company news, the Sanlorenzo SL94 yacht won its second environmental award from the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM).



The 28.6m SL94, launched in August 2011, best exemplified the increasing environmental awareness of the yachting industry. In particular the judges pointed to the electronic probes used to monitor and prevent oil spillage and the electric actuators used to avoid hydraulic oil leakage from the steering systems, according to a company statement. Other environmentally friendly systems are the climatization plant optimization and the low energy lighting system.



The fibreglass hull was also produced in a low-emissions manufacturing process: the deckhouse and deck are made using vacuum-infusion resin, and the entire hull is built with the vacuum-infusion process – using vacuum bags for PVC bonding.
