Milestone launch for Leopard Yachts...

Recent Launches

The Pisa, Italy-based yard has launched many yachts over the years, but on Saturday it launched a very special one, YN34/16 MY ‘Mariellina’.

JUNE 2010

What makes MY Mariellina so special is that she is the first delivery that was sold, built and delivered since the Picchiotti family’s yard (AKA Cantieri di Arno) severed its longstanding exclusivity arrangements with the ailing Rodriguez Group in March ‘09.
The Mariellina launch coincides with the presentation of the first hull of the new Leopard 43m line. The yacht is the result of the collaboration between the shipyard, the naval architect André Baciugalupo and the interior designer Cristiano Gatto.
The new Leopard range now includes the Leopard 32, 34, new 43, 46 and 56:
“I’m really happy,” says CEO Vincenzo Moccia. “Re-establishing ourselves commercially was a difficult process, but this launches proves we managed to communicate our message effectively to the market.”
