The Valdettaro group is made up of historic companies that have been operating in the maritime economy for decades. Dynamic and constantly expanding, today it is made up of 6 different companies, with a wide range of services: shipbuilding, port hospitality and accommodation facilities. Today the group has become a point of reference for the Tyrrhenian Sea, from Liguria to Sardinia, for the ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of boats ranging from small wooden fishing boats to mega yachts of 100 m.


Years of history


SQM of covered storage


SQM of yard


The group was born in 1992 from the intuition of the Vanelo family, entrepreneurs from Massa Carrara in the marble sector and great enthusiasts of sailing and boating: with the acquisition of land in the Gulf of Fezzano, they created what is now the first floating green port in Italy, with 270 berths.

Ugo Vanelo, sailing world champion in 1988, supported his father Giorgio in the foundation and management of the companies throughout all his years of activity, up until the recent opening of the new shipyard in the Gulf of Olbia in 2022.
