Amico & Co reveals development plans for Genoa superyacht hub

Amico & Co, the renowned Italian superyacht refit yard, has announced that work is underway to expand its facilities in Genoa.

Since 2015, the family-run shipyard has ben designing a series of developments that would create a new superyacht hub. This will boost the yard’s capacity to accommodate more and larger superyachts. It is hoped the completion date of the new infrastructure will be in 2019.

The new superyacht hub will include larger and improved superyacht berths, improved crew areas and contractor services as well as better connections the marina with the nearby city.

The development also includes construction of a 4,000-tonne ship lift capable of lifting yachts measuring up to 95 metres, with a moving system capable of transferring yachts to the yard. Once complete, the yard will have six refit sheds for yachts up to 60 metres, two covered dry docks and an 835-tonne travel lift.

In November, operations will start in the new superyacht marina, which will be capable of accommodating yachts measuring up to 110 metres.

Alberto Amico, chairman of Amico & Co, said, “We are now well advanced with the yard’s major infrastructural developments, a new megayacht marina, and our proposal for a completely Italian refit experience.

“These are the three main drivers that will allow Amico and Genoa to compete on the world stage as a market leader and go-to destination for yachts over 40 metres and up to 150 metres.”
