Announcements highlight growth
At the Miami Boat Show in Febuary, Overmarine’s commercial director Francesco Frediani confirmed the Viareggio-based shipyard (best known as builders for the Mangusta brand) has diversified. Baglietto and Cantieri di Pisa are back, after a hiatus, operating under the umbrella of Overmarine. Previously, Overmarine primarily constructed fast and stylish open-style composite yachts ranging from 72' to 165'—a 205-footer is also in the works. Baglietto is known for custom projects with an edge while Cantieri di Pisa boasts a full range of elegant flybridge yachts.
The newly created group is, in many ways, the result of the financial crisis and its rippling effects in the marine industry. Another example is the recently reorganized Rodriguez Group—which exhibited an Italyachts vessel at the Yacht & Brokerage Show. Until recently, they were the exclusive dealer of the Mangusta brand in the United States, but Overmarine announced in February that Marine Max had been appointed as the company’s new representative in the American market.
