Antonini Navi is now born and wants to be a big player. Antonini Navi is a new brand that will condense a lot of activities: build custom yachts and superyachts up to 70 meters, refitting, after-sales, and mooring for large yachts, all in La Spezia, Italy.

To this must be added the creation of a line of yachts between 30 and 50 meters in length that will be called Crossover and will be signed by guru Fulvio De Simoni, architect and designer from La Spezia.

A new Italian Builder: Antonini Navi

The project is very ambitious and is the result of an idea of Aldo Manna that the Antonini family joined, and has now planned investment of over ten million euros. The group already has a considerable background in the world of superyachts and another strong point is the strategic position of the Marina di Pertusola shipyard in Muggiano, in the Gulf of La Spezia, North West of Italy.

What will Antonini Navi do?

  • Mega yachts building: Antonini Navi shipyards have professional facilities and equipment for the production of steel hulls and superstructures. They will be able to build custom yachts and superyachts up to 70 meters.
  • Full Custom Yacht: thanks to a heterogeneous group of engineers, craftsmen and professionals Antonini Navi will be able to design and build custom yachts for any type of owner.
  • Refitting: Antonini Navi will also operate with ordinary and extraordinary maintenance inside its shipyard on yachts of any size and age. In this sense there is no lack of experience: the group has already worked in this direction, collaborating with important historical realities, such as the legendary school ship Vespucci, the 1930 Italian Navy sailing ship.
  • Antoni Navi Line: the shipyard will develop a whole range of displacement and semi-displacement yachts from 30 to 50 meters signed by Fulvio de Simoni from La Spezia (here some of the most interesting projects of the designer), Creative Director of the brand. The new line, Crossover, is a concept that best represents the Group’s DNA and will consist of a series of yachts with a voluminous and “soft” hull and contemporary lines. The first unit that will be built will be the 130′, a 40-metre Crossover, which condenses in its entirety all the special features and potential of the line.
