Significant changes announced at Cerri Cantieri Navali Italian shipyard

Italian shipyard, Cerri Cantieri Navali has made several significant announcements this week, including the appointment of three new players for the shipyard’s management team, and the signing of a new superyacht hull.

With three new hires announced for 2015, a new CEO, technical department leader and sales manager, Cerri will enjoy a renovated management team for the year ahead.

The newly appointed CEO is Diego Michele Deprati, who has previously worked with Mondo Marine. In his new role, Deprati is to be supported by Guido Penco, who will be in charge of the shipyard’s technical department.

The shipyard’s third hire is Guillo Bertani as sales manager, where his first task will be the relaunch of the brand in the international market place.

Deprati said of his new appointment, “I am delighted about this new opportunity. Cerri is still a small Italian-style shipyard, but I think that our plans, together with the enthusiasm and strong motivation that drive our team, will soon allow us to achieve amazing results.

“We are entering agreements with leading designers and we are supported by a great group, the Gavio Group, which guarantees soundness and reliability. In addition to this, I believe our long-standing experience in the large pleasure yachts sector means that anyone deciding to put their dreams into our hands can truly rely on us and be sure we’ll turn them into a reality.”

With the announcement of the refurbished management team at Cerri, a new contract was signed for the build of the fifth hull of the Cerri 102’ Flysporting line, one of the most successful series from the brand.
