A few weeks after it was created, the Italian trade association Nautica Italiana said it has added 10 brands, bringing its membership to 35.

The new brands are Cantiere delle Marche; Cantieri di Pisa; Climma-Veco Group; Comar; Equinoxe Yachts; Frigoboat-Veco Group; Mondomarine; Porto Lotti; Tecnopool; and Vismara. They represent large yacht and sailing boat builders, services, marinas and accessories.

“Following our participation in the Cannes Yachting Festival, which opened the season of shows dedicated to the industry and saw many of our associates receive major prizes and recognition reconfirming the excellence that we represent, on the eve of the Monaco Yacht Show we are very proud to welcome 10 new companies,” Lamberto Tacoli, chairman of Nautica Italiana and of the CRN-Ferretti Group, said Tuesday in a statement.

“Through their membership these companies are fully embracing our project, once again confirming how important and necessary it is not only for the boat building components — motor, sailing and refits — but also for the services and accessories, which is particularly satisfactory for us.”

The association is designed to group high-end companies to define and develop the nautical industry in Italy and internationally and promote Italian production.

The Monaco Yacht Show kicks off today and runs through Saturday.
