A new refit yard has opened in Pesaro, Italy, on the site of the former Cantiere Navale di Pesaro on the Adriatic coast. Renamed Cantiere Rossini after the 19th century opera composer Gioacchino Rossini born nearby.
About 15 million euros have been invested to revive the yard. A covered dock with seven stern-to berths are available for yachts up to 55m. Berths are equipped with 400V, 250/125 Amp shore power connections, fresh water, and benefit of 24/7 security with CCTV cameras. Car parking is available right in front of the yacht’s passerelle.
Cantiere Rossini offers a range of services, including full paint jobs, mechanical and electronic work, hydraulics, system updates, interior rebuilds and full refits. By the end of the year, the yard will have a 15,000-square-meter haul-out area and a 600-ton lift.
In 2018, the shipyard plans to have two paint sheds and welcoming spaces for crews including 16 apartments overlooking the harbor and a building with bar, gym, lounge and rooftop terrace. Capt. Stewart Parvin is CEO; Alfonso Postorino, former director of the refit division at ISA Yachts, is shipyard director; and Gianluca Devicienti is operations manager.
