The excellence of supply and subcontracting for boating on display at the 15th Seatec to support Italian yacht building, the best and most productive in the world

23th February, 2017

The great names of the Italian and international subcontracting industry  will gather from  March 29 to 31 in Marina di Carrara at the 15th Seatec, the trade show dedicated to technology, components, design and subcontracting applied to recreational boating, organised by CarraraFiere to be the only dedicated event sector in Italy and southern Europe.

Marina di Carrara, and therefore Seatec, are located in the middle of the most comprehensive and complex supply chain system at the service of subcontracting for high-end yacht building, which gathers in the district  of La Spezia-Massa-Carrara-Versilia-Livorno the highest number of top level shipyards operating  in the construction of superyachts, such as Azimut, Baglietto, Benetti, Codecasa, Overmarine, Perini Navi, Picchiotti, Riva, Rossinavi, Sanlorenzo. Made strong by this qualitative supremacy, the district is also able to account for a quantitative supremacy. Of the 325 superyachts under construction in Italy, among the 760 listed in the Global Order Book of Boat International 2017, the annual publication that showcases the list of boat building over 24 metres in the world, 207 are under construction in this district, and are going to delivered between late 2016 and 2020, with three units longer than 100 metres, the first time in the history of Italian shipbuilding for pleasure crafts.

Thanks to and because of this extraordinary high-quality productive concentration, the supply chain has reached peaks of excellence which in the last 15 years Seatec has been representing and concentrating in the three days of exhibition, aggregating prominent members of the supply industry which during the next edition will present their production and services at the event in Marina di Carrara ‒ among them: 4C Innovation, Promotech, Underwater Lights in the field of lighting; Akzo Nobel, Boero Bartolomeo, Bruno Stoppani, in the sector of painting and coating; Besenzoni, Opacmare, in field of gangboards and  boarding equipment; Böning, Eaton in the automation and power management; Condaria, Frigomar, Frigonautica, Webasto, in the field of air conditioning and refrigeration; Compagnia Generale Trattori-Caterpillar, Italian Propellers, Kohler , MTU, Northern Lights, Saim, Twin Disc, ZF Marine Electronics, in the field of propulsion and power generation; CMC, VT Naiad, in the field of stabilization; Idromar, Schenker, Tecnicomar, in the field of desalination; Garmin, Navionics, Raymarine, Team Italia in the sector of electronic instrumentation and bridge equipment; Centro Nautico Commerciale, Indemar, Maxwell Marine, Quick in route control equipment, engine controls and deck equipment; Gianneschi in the field of pumps and blowers for luxury and work boats and also of ventilation systems, to end with mechanical-precision companies such as SKF or leader in computing such as Skytech.

All these examples of excellence, each one in its field, have elected Seatec, since the beginning, as a fundamental showcase for distributing their products in the district and for supplying its record-breaking shipbuilding industry with all the equipment, the materials and the services necessary to build the best superyachts in the world .
