Tankoa begins due diligence for 100% acquisition of Cantieri di Pisa

Tankoa has begun the administrative process of acquiring the 76-year-old Cantieri di Pisa shipyard. Founded in 1945 on the river Arno, the Tuscan shipyard became famous for its planing motoryachts, such as the Akhir and Kitalpha series designed by Pierluigi Spadolini. 

The acquisition of Cantieri di Pisa allows us to expand the production potential of Tankoa in Genova, but also resurrect a prestigious brand with innovative new products from 30 to 45 metres.

“We trust that the technical and administrative procedures will have a positive outcome over the next few weeks so that we can begin work to gradually reintegrate resources and become operational,” says Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of Tankoa “We would also like to thank Mayor Michele Conti and engineer  Salvatore Pisano for their support and assistance in establishing our industrial plan.”

Following the launch of 50-metre Olokun and the sale of the hull#4, Tankoa currently has another 50-metre hull in build on speculation in Genoa (hull#5).
