Cantieri di Pisa was founded seventy-six years ago, in 1945. They are famous for the series of planing motoryachts Akhir and Kitalpha designed by Pierluigi Spadolini. Now Tankoa has started the administrative procedures to acquire it.
The acquisition of Cantieri di Pisa will allow both to grow the production potential of Tankoa‘s Genoa shipyard and to revive the prestigious Cantieri di Pisa brand with innovative products ranging from 30 to 45 meters.
“We hope that the technical and administrative checks that will be carried out in the coming weeks will have a positive outcome so that we can start the work activities with the gradual insertion of resources according to operational needs. Moreover, I would like to thank the Mayor Michele Conti and the Eng. Salvatore Pisano for the support received and for the willingness to support us in the realization of our industrial plan”, explains Vincenzo Poerio, Ceo of Tankoa Yachts.
After the launch of the 50 meters Olokun, and the sale of hull number 4, Tankoa is currently building on spec the 5th hull of the 50 meters series.
