After a quarter of a century the Neapolitan shipyard, born as Motonautica Vesuviana, can take stock of its activities. He did so in a meeting during which the projects of the future that will lead the company to increasingly be a reference point for Italian yachting abroad were unveiled.

The first project, already in the working phase, is the Mito 40, the new model of the most popular series abroad, which will present some new features of particular interest. The project includes a double dinette at the stern and bow, with the bow area that can be moved with an electrical system as is usually in the stern areas. The project derives from the 31, with the double redan on the hull, a generator on board and a width that will be the top for the category. The first model will be unveiled at the Cannes boat show in September and will be powered by Mercury outboards, while waiting to see the sterndrive version too.

The futuristic project of the Hydrofoil RIB was also a great curiosity, an absolutely innovative 31-footer: "It will have a hull with retractable foils - explained the engineer Raffaele Di Donna who is carrying out the design phase -. These appendages allow the hull in water to be reduced by up to 42% with a considerable reduction in consumption and reduced environmental pollution. This innovation makes it possible to use electric or hybrid engines as already happens in the automotive sector. In fact we plan to use a hybrid inboard with a strong autonomy of the electric part and that can reach even 50 knots of speed. Naturally a similar project needs a long time between projects, simulations, construction of the prototype before arriving at the final version. We are aiming to achieve one in the space of two to three years".

The yard's success led its founder, the engineer Vincenzo Nappo, to try making a further breakthrough. A plot of land extending over 8,000 square meters was purchased in Striano, where a new shipyard will be built: "We have clear ideas - emphasizes the founder of MV Marine - we are now looking for partners to help us make them concrete. The sector in general, I say this as a director of Ucina Confindustria, indeed needs the help of the institutions, which where possible have the task of giving support to valid and innovative projects".

...keep Ribbing!
