The new site, located next to their current facility, represents a 30% increase, with an entire production area now greater than 47,000 square metres. Arcadia Yachts' production capacity has therefore increased by roughly 11,000 square metres, of which 40% is indoors.
The new development is the result of investments worth more than €30,000,000 over the past 10 years, a strategic choice aimed at supporting an increase in the number of yachts under production and the after-sales services.
Ugo Pellegrino, sole director of Arcadia Yachts commented, “To increase production capacity, to develop larger products without altering the Aracadia DNA and to continue having a solid and direct relationship with our customers are the reasons behind this operation.
“The orders taken, the ongoing negotiations and the enthusiasm recorded for the most recent models encourage me and the other shareholders to take on our entrepreneurial responsibilities and seize all the opportunities that arise - obviously assessing the related risks,” he added.
The shipyard’s expansion has reiterated the importance that Arcadia Yachts has associated with after-sales activities – with 40% of customers this year having the shipyard deal with the wintering and maintenance of their vessels.
Pellegrino further stated, “It was almost automatic for us to identify the acquisition of 21% of the Marina di Torre Annunziata as a fundamental option for the natural growth of our activities, in line with our principles and with what we have done so far.”
