Included in the acquisition are the warehouses and facilities and six boats that are currently under construction. It will also provide for the complete absorption of the labour force at the yard, which includes 33 employees so far.
Concessions include 12,000sqm of square, 6,000sqm of warehouses and 800sqm of basin, which will be revoked and immediately reassigned to Mondomarine.
Alessandro Falciai, chairman and owner of Mondomarine, said in a statement to the media, “I am very proud of the success achieved. I am sure the quality of a business plan that also includes the enhancement of capacity and skills of employees in force at the shipyards and linked industries has been recognised. The operation is part of the strategy for development of Mondomarine, which aims to be the leader in the field of high-end yachts. Precisely in this sense the historical line of Cantieri di Pisa, Akhir, will be redirected towards the production of high quality, with semi-displacement aluminium yachts from 30 metres and up. It is the best way to celebrate this year, the centenary of Cantieri Navali Campanella, our production site in Savona."
This follows on from other news in Italy, that ISA Yachts has submitted notice to the trade union and court authorities to seek an agreement with creditors.
