Mondomarine, born in 1915 under the name “Cantieri Navali Campanella”, acquired by Alessandro Falciai and Roberto Zambrini in 2013, has built 62 units so far in addition to the number previously reached by Campanella Shipyard. During the last 9 years, Mondomarine sold 20 yachts over 40meters length, of which eight over 50meters length. The upcoming years will see several important events, such as the delivery to his Owner at the end of 2015 of the 40m SF40 and those, in 2016, of the 50m Superyacht M50 and of the M60s, the first 60m yacht built by the shipyard. All these latest projects are built entirely in aluminium, a distinguishing feature of Mondomarine projects. In spring 2017 Mondomarine will deliver the M40 Explorer.
