Francesco Del Carlo Boatyard

Yacht restoration

Francesco Del Carlo founded the Francesco Del Carlo shipyard in Viareggio in 1963. At that time the site was equipped with three slipways and primarily worked on fishing boats made of oak and pine up to 25 metres in length. While a number of these boats return periodically to the boatyard for routine maintenance, the crisis in the fishing industry and a consequential drop in the number of boats used pushed the boatyard to specialise in the restoration of pleasure boats. The boatyard brings these wonderful vintage boats back to their original beauty, many of which continue to participate in gatherings of vintage sail boats of the Mediterranean. Del Carlo shipyard is now composed of four sheds for high-quality services, all equipped with mechanical and carpentry workshops.
