Company history

The Posillipo shipyard was opened in the late 1950s by Giovanni di Campello and Dottor Casa. The company received its name from the town in the vicinity of which it was located. In the 60's the company moved to Sabaudia with the support of Cassa del Mezzogiorno (State Fund for the development of industry in southern Italy).

At the new site, the shipyard started having problems with local fishermen who opposed the industrial site. The company had no money for another move and as a result Posillipo went first to the state company GEPI and then to the American Nouri Group, which later went bankrupt.

In 1993, the shipyard was taken over by its last owner, Rizzardi.

Status .

In 2010 Rizzardi's parent company was declared bankrupt but was able to regain its operations four years later, but the management abandoned the Posillipo brand.


The company was bought back from its Sabaudia production facilities, where assembly shops, workshops and warehouses were located on an area of 28,000 square metres.


The first Posillipo left the assembly line with wooden hulls, later the manufacturer mastered fiberglass and focused on the segment of high-speed semi-custom superyachts up to 37 meters long.

Features .

The company did not stingy on the design and architecture of its boats. The yachts were created with the participation of such respected studios as Zuccon, Galeazzi e Minotti Architetti Associati, Giovanni Arrabito and others.
