"Eclipse" Leaves The Fincantieri Shipyard

The massive Superyacht "Eclipse" has just left the Fincantieri shipyard in Trieste San Marco to conduct sea trials after a four week drydock maintenance project. This relatively short but very large project took 70 workers the whole four weeks to complete, quite staggering when you think about it.

Fincantieri has now made a stand in the world of Superyachts with this project of the worlds largest Superyacht and also the launch of their 134m (439ft) Serene which took place in 2011. Serene is one of the top 10 privately owned Superyachts in the world and was a winner at the wold Superyacht awards.

In addition to construction, repair and refitting, Fincantieri activities also include the development of innovative concepts. Three concept projects, which are being developed on platforms engineered by Fincantieri, have been recently introduced. They have received great interest among the experts and are the 88m (288ft) "Virage88", designed by Andrew Winch, the 145m (475ft) "Fortissimo", a "gas turbine yacht" designed by Ken Freivoch, with an innovative design and a propulsion system capable of a speed of over 35kts, while minimizing environmental impact and the 142m (466ft) "Armonia", styled by Andrea Vallicelli and engineered by Fincantieri Yachts.
