Arrabito Naval Architects


Designer description Arrabito Naval Architects

The history of the brand

In 1980 Italian Giovanni Arrabito created his own design bureau in Livorno. From a little-known small firm, he managed to grow a reputable company respected in the yachting community. The total number of boats created with the participation of Arrabito Naval Architects has already exceeded 3000, and the second generation of the Arrabito family has joined the management.


There should be no approximate data in architecture, drawings and engineering. Before submitting documentation, the bureau team calculates each value, performs a computer analysis of the data, builds a model and tests it in a pool. Precise sequencing, control and professionalism are the three components of the company's success.


Arrabito Naval Architects specializes in marine architecture for almost all types of motorboats. The portfolio includes yachts with hulls from 10 to 70 meters. The studio designs the exteriors on an individual basis.

Cooperation with shipyards

The studio has the most successful relationship with Rossinavi, for which it develops semi-displacement, displacement hulls and modern SUVs. Also the company takes part in designing of superyachts for DL Yachts, Cantieri di Pisa, Ocean Alexander, Canados and so on.

Landmark projects

The team designed the architecture for one of the most avant-garde boats, the 35.3 metre Guilty. The boat is one of the tops of the most unusual boats in various publications. The 33-meter Riana was one of the few models in the portfolio for which the studio created the exterior.


Today an experienced team is led by Giuseppe Arrabito and Giuseppe Arrabito, two generations of naval architects who combine the traditions of the old school with modern design techniques.
