Fulvio Dodich, a veteran executive in the superyacht industry who has held top management positions with brands such as Ferretti and Sanlorenzo, is a partner in and chairman of Rosetti Superyachts.

The new division has a branch office in Monte Carlo that aims to draw on the group’s extensive shipbuilding heritage to build luxury superyachts, long-range supply vessels and expedition yachts from 131 to 492 feet.

“We took the decision to launch this initiative based on Rosetti Marino’s remarkable experience, solid financial background and exceptional facilities to create a series of high-level superyachts with semicustom or fully customizable identities, as well as providing technical excellence and innovative solutions,” Dodich said in a statement. “We are proposing made-in-Italy yachts that are designed and built to the highest technical and safety standards that distinguish the whole Rosetti Marino Group of companies.”

Dodich has brought in Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini to develop a fleet of concepts from 157 to 278 feet. The first of these is a 278-foot expedition supply vessel of 2,200GT with MTU main engines and propulsion systems supplied by Rolls-Royce.

Available in two deck arrangements with central or aft helipad, the renders display the version with a fully certified helicopter deck above a dedicated owner’s area aft. The helipad and forward superstructure are connected by a central gangway, with deck space in between for storing large tenders and toys.

Dodich is already in advanced negotiations with prospective owners for this and other projects. Further details will be revealed in the coming months.
