Cantiere Rossi, in the 1980s, dealt almost exclusively with nautical and industrial carpentry and repairs, thus developing a deep knowledge of materials, and working tools; it was artistry that drove all creative and relational ideas.
In the 1990s, the work developed by combining collective memory and current experience. The shipyard specialized in building passenger, inland and ocean-going ships. It also continued with technical refinement, dealing with carpentry and construction of hulls and superstructures for other shipyards, and in the construction of mechanical components for ship fitting out. This is the time when materials, in the right hands, begin to turn into innovative tradition.
The early 2000s prove to be the era of insights. These are very important years, because the first yacht signed by the company was born.
Theory and practice, together, under one roof; there is no evolutionary development that does not begin with a push forward. And as Rossi Shipyard continued the business of building and outfitting complete yachts for third parties, it began to stabilize its foundation. The company was ready to enter and establish itself in the world of luxury yachting.
Once the artistry was consolidated in the construction know-how typical of Made in Italy excellence, the company decided, in 2007, that this was the right time to consolidate the brand and converge all the knowledge into prestigious yachts on the technical and comfort levels.
Full-custom vessels that were born out of an idea, the cultivation of relationships between the company and its customers, and the customers' desires: thus, Rossinavi was born.
For Rossinavi, shipbuilding and the cultivation of human relationships are concatenated actions, sharing the entire creative and construction process with clients; thus, it leaves not only customized vessels shaped on the person, but also a package of knowledge that aspires to form generations of vessel Owners who are increasingly aware and, therefore, able to conceive and study their vessel based on skills that are difficult to acquire for those who do not work in the industry.
Rossinavi are what they build.
It is the decisive moment when Rossinavi's teamwork sets the route for international markets, when the new brand opens its name and history to the world. Here is what Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi, says: "There are periods that have rhythms that must be observed and respected. You cannot materialize a dream like a mass-produced automobile. It is the art of measurement, the art of scrupulous control of every single engineering process, the art of experience that begins with the first nail driven into the first sheet metal. Our philosophy is to focus on two or three vessels a year, at most. And many of our clients have a relationship with us only because of this dimension, which for them means all the dedicated attention, the guarantee of extreme care for the vessel of their dreams, custom built and built by sharing the contract and all the passions and desires." And this dimension of "shared project" is now a current reality and a standard procedure in the relationship with all their clients: because of the vessel they have and because of the relationship of trust and exchange they have always had with the Rossi family.
The concept of full custom is a real company philosophy and constitutes the Nucleus of Rossinavi. It stems from the desire to create unique pieces entirely developed and built on the customer's directions and needs.
The customer is the protagonist of the project and his or her requests the fulcrum toward which skills and techniques converge. For this to be effective, dialogue is essential, the quality of which is reflected in the quality of workmanship, because the customer is placed at the center of attention from the earliest stages of the project.
Once the owner's preferences are known, everyone from the carpenters to Rossinavi's engineers and designers begin to put their skills to work for the client. This type of construction process becomes an experience for Rossinavi's clients, as the company is committed to creating unique pieces specifically for the buyer and instructing him or her on how to make them. This way, in the end, the buyer can walk away with his or her own customized vessel and with a deeper understanding of this industry.
In the 2020s, the company strives to rewrite recreational cruising according to contemporary ethical and environmental requirements. Thus, was born the BluE line, focused on sustainability, with performance optimized to minimize onboard consumption and carbon emissions.
The BluE concept is inspired by phytoplankton, or plant microorganisms that can perform photosynthesis and produce more than half of the oxygen on Earth each year. Rossinavi aims to revolutionize the concept of vessel use. New Smart Marina refers to the possibility of transforming a vessel from a passive consumer to an active producer of energy.
Thanks to solar panels that constantly absorb sunlight, moored vessels can be used as active energy support for their host ports. The BluE Rossinavi is designed to respect the sea, silent and imperceptible, escorted by the beauty of phytoplankton. Those who choose a Rossinavi yacht are looking for intense and exciting voyages that know how to be respectful of the environment and people, re-establishing an intimate and deep connection with nature that anyone familiar with marine life can easily notice.
As of today, the company has made great progress and breakthroughs in the world of cruising, and this heritage Rossinavi guards and updates daily to adjust course toward the future it wants to achieve; a unique future shaped entirely by the company's experienced hands.
