The historic Leopard brand is reborn in the Seven Stars shipyards

Today Seven Stars Marina & Shipyard presents to the press the launch of the first 36-meter model by Leopard Yachts, taking a first step for the relaunch of the historic brand born in 1973 by the Picchiotti family.

A project that is the expression of a new way of interpreting shipbuilding, favoring the production of custom made yachts aimed at satisfying the customer’s needs, which are distinguished from industrial mass production.

The new Leopard boat will be produced in the Tombolo shipyard, where the last Leopards were built, recently taken over by Seven Stars Marina & Shipyard, an established company in shipbuilding, which wants to be a real center of 360 ° servicing and very high quality.

On the historic Canale dei Navicelli, which connects Pisa with the port of Livorno, the restart operation of the brand will include investments to produce new lines of boats of different sizes to meet the expectations of new owners. Each project will be customized ad hoc on the customer, involving different skills and an articulated and heterogeneous work group, from engineers to naval architects, up to specialized craftsmen. In addition to the new 36-meter, which will be the first boat to be produced, two 24 and 46-meter yachts are also being planned.

The conception was entrusted to the designer Andre Bacigalupo and to the studio that bears his name, already the designer of many successful models of the Leopard brand, and a pupil of Paolo Caliari who designed the first model of the made in Italy brand. A project devoted to enhancing the Italian spirit in the world, placing itself in continuity with what the previous owner had done, according to the tradition of shipbuilding in the coastal area of ​​Tuscany.
