Nautical and naval new constructions
Experience in shipbuilding since 1978
My experience in the nautical field began in 1978 with IOR class regattas on 12-meter sailing yachts, and subsequently with boarding on vintage sailing yachts. Finally with the construction and racing of 1st class offshore yachts.
After that I began to dedicate myself to shipbuilding with the Perini Navi Shipyard in Viareggio starting in 1987, as Equipment Manager. In recent years I have been personally responsible for the fitting out of many naval units, including Simba, Gitana, Malizia, and many others.
In 1997 my passion led me to become Yacht Equipment Manager and later Production and Construction Director for the Intermarine s.p.a. Shipyard. in La Spezia.
Here, under my supervision, the following military units and yachts were built: MY Balaju, Gdf Serie V 6000, 35 m Gdf patrol boats, MY Wally Power 118, S/Y Virtuelle (Tencara), and other minor constructions.
Since 2004 I have worked as Quality Director of the Admiral Yachts Shipyard in Lavagna, acquiring further skills on methodologies and technologies in aluminum motor yachts.
In the same year I began my professional activity as a naval expert for evaluations of new purchases, for modification and repair work, and for legal and insurance assessments.
Subsequently, I worked for 6 years as Production Director for Cantieri San Lorenzo in Viareggio. Subsequently I collaborated with Wosa Yacht Refitting Management and Survey for another 5 years, and then as Production Director of Baglietto Yacht in La Spezia.
Today I hold the role of Plant and Production Manager for the Siman Shipyards in Pisa.
I am available for assignments in Liguria and Tuscany, but also in other Italian and foreign regions.
Construction supervision and consultancy for new yacht construction
Nautical constructions in La Spezia and Genoa. Yacht construction management in Viareggio, Carrara, Livorno. Shipbuilding in Liguria and Tuscany.
When dealing with yacht design and construction, there are several critical aspects to consider.
Here are three main points to consider for new yacht construction:
Design and Engineering
The design must balance the performance of the yacht with its functionality. This includes the choice of materials, hull shape, propulsion system and interior layout. The priority is to ensure that the yacht is able to meet the specific needs of the customer or end user.
Safety is a crucial element in yacht design. This includes stability, structural strength, on-board safety systems and compliance with maritime safety regulations and standards.
Materials and Construction
Selecting the right materials is critical to the durability, strength and performance of the yacht. Materials such as GRP, steel, aluminum and carbon fiber are commonly used depending on the specific needs of the project.
Construction processes must be efficient and of high quality. The construction technology, which may include laminating, welding, woodwork or other methods, must be chosen according to the characteristics of the project.
Regulations and Certifications
New marine constructions must comply with national and international maritime rules and regulations. This may include safety regulations, environmental standards and construction requirements.
Obtaining the appropriate certifications is essential to demonstrate the quality and safety of the vessel. These certifications may be issued by internationally recognized classification organizations.
In addition to these main points, it is also important to consider aspects such as energy efficiency, ergonomics, accessibility and comfort on board. My collaboration with designers, naval engineers and builders is essential to ensure the success of each shipbuilding project.
Planning and execution of work
In any project for super yachts and yachts in general, construction supervision is a key element. Bianchi Marine Services makes a fundamental contribution with a hands-on approach to the planning and execution of the work, in order to deliver the yacht within the specifications, budget, time and deadline.
- Coordination of work with designers, interior architects and naval engineers.
- Organizing and participating in progress meetings at regular intervals throughout the construction of super yachts.
- Preparation of detailed technical specifications, plans and schedules.
- Managing changes by assessing the technical, temporal and economic impact they will have on the order.
- Preparation of budgets, schedules and resources.
- Comparison of the actual progress of the order by reacting to any complications.
- Use of a quality management system.
- Management and cooperation with surveyors from the international classification society and MCA.
- Checking for defects during yacht construction to ensure rapid intervention.
- Assessment of difficulties in new construction and refitting.
- Assessment and selection of shipyards and contractors and formulation of offers.
- If necessary, mediation between parties where there is a conflict of interest.
- Carrying out pre-delivery inspections, sea trials and delivery.
