Allied Yachting Italia Agency Established in Partnership

24 February 2021

Allied Yachting expands in partnership to Italy, establishing Allied Yachting Italia agency in Marina di Pietrasanta (LU) as part of our European coverage strategy. Our new partnership agency in Italy will be supporting us on all sales of preowned yachts, new construction yachts, sailboats, catamarans and motor yachts as well as charter, in representation of our Italian and other international customers.

Centrally situated between Viareggio and La Spezia on the Italian Riviera (Liguria), Allied Yachting Italia agency is strategically located not only on the most famous yachting coastline of the Ligurian sea, but also on the indisputably main yacht construction hub in Italy, with easy access to the main Italian shipyards by the Genoa, Pisa, Turin, Florence or Milan airports.

Add the beautiful climate, the fascinating culture, exquisite dining, breath-taking Italian-waters sailing itineraries, along with the many spectacular and modern well-appointed marinas on the coastline, and you will understand why we decided to establish in this region.

Today, Livorno, Viareggio, Pisa and Carrara in Tuscany, along with La Spezia and all the way to Genoa or Savona in Liguria, represent the productive district of the large Italian boatyards that built the most beautiful yachts exported throughout the world, such as Azimut, Benetti, Baglietto, Cantieri di Pisa, Codecasa, the Ferretti Group (with Ferretti, Custom Line, CRN, Itama, Mochi Craft, Riva and Wally), Gianetti Yacht, Falcon Yachts, the Fipa Group (with Maiora, AB Yachts and CBI Navi), Overmarine (Mangusta), the Italian Sea Group (Admiral and Tecnomar), Mondomarine, Tankoa, Perini Navi, and of course Sanlorenzo Yachts and Superyachts amongst others.

This region is represented by the very robust local luxury yacht industry in Northern Italy, which has now also evolved to a highly reputed Superyacht industry, because of the growing demand and that Italian-built yachts have achieved a very solid international reputation of quality, design and seaworthiness. Along with the yards, this region is highly skilled with qualified technicians, craftsmanship and contemporary designers, whom all contribute to the fact that, in effect, Viareggio has become a ‘brand’, and producing in Viareggio is now a recognized guarantee of quality.

Yachting Services Offered in Italy:

New yachts and Superyacht building projects will include permanent shipyard and new-builds follow-up as well as project management, sea-trials, surveys and classification.

For preowned yachts and second-hand boats, in accordance with our company’s philosophy, objective and impartial advice will be given to all our customers, simplifying with our professional assistance and expertise the process of buying a yacht, but also in negotiating the best purchase price for any boat, yacht or Superyacht – Assistance in sea-trials, surveys, VAT issues, coding a boat for charter and refit, will also be provided – Listing your second-hand boat for sale, will also be easier if she is located in Italy.

Yacht refit and maintenance will also be developed in Italy by our company since the Viareggio cluster, whose ramifications extend throughout Tuscany and Liguria, also benefits from the main Italian refit yards such as Lusben, Amico and NCA, but also other medium-sized yards, most owned by the same major Italian shipbuilding protagonists, where we can follow any yacht refit, maintenance, service or simply summer season preparation dry-dock for antifouling and anodes.

Based on the specific requirements of each client, tailor-made yacht management can also be proposed, including berth management and crew management.

We will also be attending the main boat shows in Italy such as the Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous, held in Viareggio every year in mid-May and opens the European boat show season, because of the region’s yacht-building heritage and major contribution to the global yachting industry, and the Salone Nautico di Genova (Genoa Boat Show), generally held in fall (late September of each year), featuring the major Italian yacht builders and showcasing their new models.
