Web: Cantieri di Pisa New Web Site

Cantieri di Pisa presents its new World wide web showroom.  Founded by Gino Bini and Antonio Sostegni unofficially in 1945, and officially in 1956 Cantieri di Pisa started life in the commercial harbour of Pisa, and will move in 1959 on the limits of the Arno river, a place which as at today is still home.  The first yachts are wooden sailing yachts the 20mt Tyrsa in 1945 and the 30mt Kerilos follow in 1950.  In 1955 the first motor boat the 10 mt Polaris is launched.  Polaris starts the motor series named to the Eridanus constellation and other popular planets; Saturno, Jupiter, Pegasus, Kitalpha, Akhir, and last the Kaitos models of sport yachts launched in 2002.  Cantieri di Pisa had various owners onwards from 2001 when German fund investor Dresdner Kleiwort Capital takes 51% of ownership, with Bini and Sostegni keeping the remaining.  In 2004 Camuzzi Group takes 91% of ownership and follows a year later with a total buyout.  Onward from 2010 Cantieri di Pisa enters in crisis with various owners being rumoured of buying out the company every season, eventually Alessandro Falcai buys the yard in 2015.  This ownership will last two years being bought again by current owners Sea Finance in 2018.  Cantieri di Pisa has build a total of over 600 yachts, all in semi-custom or custom made to order builds, at first its construction was strictly in wood, but in the nineties the yacht builder made a switch to fiberglass, first as a choice and then totally switching all the series in this material.  The Akhir series which launched with the wooden 16 motor yacht in 1973 proved a successful line which expanded over the years in always bigger sizes and updating styling with the S update on the 25 in 1989 proving a popular and successful one.  Another timeless looking classic Cantieri di Pisa is the seventies introduced Kitaplha 15 which still gets admiring views whenever one gets to see a well conditioned unit.  Cantieri di Pisa largest ever build is the Carlo Galeazzi designed Akhir 153 which launched in 2012 so far built in only one unit.  Currently Cantieri di Pisa is offering two models the Akhir 108 and 118.  Cantieri di Pisa new web site takes you around with the following buttons; Home, Company, History, Yachts, Services, Eyes on the Future, Opportunities, Journal, and Contact.  Cantieri di Pisa is also on social media with top page links taking you to its Facebook and Instagram pages.
