Fort Lauderdale-based builder Genesis Interiors has recently merged with Cantiere Viareggio in the yacht-building port of Viareggio, Italy.
The shipyard, which has more than 50 years of experience in the construction, fitting-out and refit of yachts up to 50m, is now part of the Genesis Yachts Group and will serve as Genesis Interiors’ European headquarters, according to the company.
“Cantiere Viareggio is where I started my career in the yachting industry in the 1980s,” Roberto Lottini, Genesis founder and president, stated in a company press release. “The shipyard’s principals at the time, Antonio Francesconi and Giulio Pellegrini, were masters of their trade and helped me to gain the skills and experience that allowed me to start Genesis 25 years ago. Now, I am delighted to come full circle and bring Cantiere Viareggio into the Genesis Yachts Group.”
