About the shipyard
Experiencing the sea is the most exciting way to experience nature. The sea can be gentle and soft but also deep and breathtaking. It can open routes and hearts, and it shapes the course of history. The magic of the sea attracts us because there are no boundaries or horizons. As a result, we have an overwhelming feeling of being carried away beyond imagination, living every moment to the fullest.
The inexplicable power of emotion ignites the soul of our boats today, just as it did 60 years ago. It guides our hands, turning magic into art. The art of caring for every little thing is a beauty that evokes the strongest sensations. All this and more comes from the sea: the endless source of our inspiration.
Like most pioneers, Ruggiero Di Luggo’s vision began with a spark: he turned his passion for the sea into an exciting lifestyle. As a child, Ruggiero intensely dreamed about yachts and drew them on everything that came to hand. When he grew up and started working as an engineer, he did not give up on his childhood dreams. In 1960, Rudgero built the first fiberglass boat in Europe, which he named Concita. The small 3.6-meter-long boat aroused great interest among the public and competitors.
“I thought that this invention would allow any Italian family to have a boat and use it every day, similar to how they use the car. The Conchita was a durable boat, easy to transport, and at the same time, inexpensive. A vessel that every Italian could have.”– Ruggiero di Luggo
During the Maritime Exhibition in Milan in 1961, Di Luggo brought four Conchitas there – two suspended vertically on the ceiling due to limited space at his stand.
“It was weird to exhibit a small plastic boat with a strange Spanish name among all these mahogany masterpieces from famous shipyards. And yet it worked. Visitors were interested, surprised, and knocked on the hull as if testing it for strength.– Ruggiero Di Luggo
Perhaps, for the first time after the Second World War, people believed that having a boat was a perfectly acceptable and achievable goal. That is how, in the same year, we received our first 60 orders!”.
And this is how the Fiart Mare shipyard was born. At that time, Ruggiero Di Luggo was 34 years old. Nevertheless, he remained at the Company’s helm for over 50 years.
Since its start, Fiart has produced over 130 different models of boats and yachts. However, people have always been Fiart’s most valuable asset. The close-knit shipyard team is passionate about their work and is always ready to take on new challenges because great things happen to those who never stop believing, trying, and learning. Therefore, like one big family, the shipyard’s employees are part of the Company’s enormous success.
Today Di Luggo children took over the management of the yard. They have successfully brought Father’s visionary spirit to the routes of the present. Today, modern and stylish Fiart models bear little resemblance to Conchita, but they still ensure that their owners enjoy life at sea to the fullest.
Fiart yachts are unlike any other. The upper curved bow profile and contemporary exterior details are striking even with a cursory glance at the models of this shipyard. The dynamic characteristics of Fiart models are also extraordinary – at a speed of 35-40 knots per day, you can cross not only the Gulf of Naples!
Today, Fiart shipyard produces boats in Baia, on the territory of a luxurious Italian villa on the shores of the Gulf of Naples. The shipyard area consists of more than 50,000 square meters, including modern open and closed premises and an experimental pool for testing hulls in the water.
