Maintenance of megayacht 'Eclipse' at the Trieste San Marco shipyard recently completed, other projects on hand.

In the four weeks work, 70 workers were employed in the repairs and refitting of the megayacht 'Eclipse'.

With the drydocking of  the “Eclipse”, Fincantieri confirms its presence in the high value megayacht sector in which they already boast the delivery in 2011 of  134m MY “Serene", which they claim is the largest most luxurious and technologically advanced craft ever built in Italy.

The “Serene” is among the top ten private yachts in the world and in 2012, was the winner of a "World Superyacht Award". At the yard facilities in Muggiano, Fincantieri now continues with the construction of a second megayacht, more challenging and demanding than the first, the 140m "Victory".
 
Three concept projects, which are being developed on platforms engineered by Fincantieri, have been recently introduced which have aroused much interest among experts, the 88m "Virage88", designed by Andrew Winch; the 145m "Fortissimo", a "gas turbine yacht" designed by Ken Freivoch, with an innovative design and a propulsion system capable of a speed of over 35 knots, while minimizing environmental impact; and the 142m Armonia, styled by Andrea Vallicelli and engineered by Fincantieri Yachts.
