Web: Picchiotti New Web Site

Picchiotti the Perini Navi Group brand of Motor Yachts presents its new website. Founded in a historical date since 1600 on the limits of the Arno river in Pisa, the yard later on moved to the Viareggio town. The Picchiotti family is in fact one of the reasons why the seaside Village of Viareggio became known as the Yacht City of the World since the eighties. In its four century history Picchiotti did nearly build everything from wooden sail boats, Iron Italian Navy vessels, and race craft. The yard has also a unique record of building yachts being one of the first to do it with the 15 metre Espria of 1905, and then followed by the famous 36.5 metre Kon-Tiki from 1947. But apart yachts Picchiotti was also the first for building motor cruisers with the 10.25 metre Giglio, which was followed by the 14.50 metre Giannutri, Gorgona, Giraglia, and Mistral. In the early nineties another historical turn came for Picchiotti with the newly founded Perini Navi first leasing the yard premises for the construction of its unique sail boats, and later on purchasing the whole area. Thus in the year 2010 marks the full return of the Picchiotti brand with the launching of the first 50 M Vitruvius Exporer. For the 50 M there is further two units under construction but Picchiotti has also three further sized projects from 44 up to 73 metres from the new range. Picchiotti new web site is available in Italian and English language and takes you around with the following buttons; Home, History, News & Media, Perini Navi Group, and Contacts.
