Formally established in 1965, the company Cantiere Navale Fratelli Bertolucci has its roots in theancient Viareggio carpentry tradition: in fact, since the beginning of the XIX century, Viareggio shipwrights were skilled builders of wooden fishing boats and merchant ships that soon became famous throughout the Mediterranean Sea and as well as the Seas of Northern Europe.
Once wooden sailing ships and merchant ships went out of production, the sons and grandsons of the founder and today his great grandsons – the current owners of the company – have been able to convert these precious manufacturing skills adapting them to the modern requirements of the marine industry, combining the experienced craftsmanship of their highly qualified shipyard workers with the ever changing needs of super-yacht production and with the always more sophisticated requirements of ship-owners and designers.Today the company is leader in the production of teak wood decks for the covering of steel decks, plastic reinforced by incorporated fibreglass decks or wooden decks. Cantiere Navale Fratelli Bertolucci has in fact achieved an enviable reputation for its high standards of excellence and works in close cooperation with the major leading Italian shipyards, especially those located in Viareggio (world leader in the pleasure navigation industry) that build luxury boats.
This specialization, together with the production of handrails, outdoor furniture, gratings and steps is the main part of the company’s business. We also provide indoor furniture and we take care of the fitting out of the cabins.
