The NEXT Yacht Group is born

1 September 2021

bringing together household names MAIORA, AB YACHTS and CBI NAVI

Viareggio, September 2021

NEXT Yacht Group unites the accumulated know-how that stems from four decades of tradition and experience contributing their exceptional designs to making the Italian yachting sector so unique.

NEXT Yacht Group,as the name suggests, looks to the future, to going beyond the status quo, to providing its own vision of excellence and a new, innovative interpretation of what it means to live a Luxury Lifestyle.

NEXT Yacht Group can count on exceptional economic and financial solidity, thanks to the key role of GB Invest Holding AG, a world leader in Information Technology and the applicative potential of Artificial Intelligence, as it achieves its core objective to combine technological research with the tailoring skills necessary for customising its products.

NEXT Yacht Group is an essential part of a broader investment plan targeting the luxury hospitality sector with the aim to unite Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi under the same Versilia skyline. A shipbuilding world capital immersed in the glamour of a breath-taking coastline and high fashion. The historic Hotel Principe di Piemonte with the seductive charm of Maitò Beach through the sensory experience of the greatest Michelin-star chefs.

NEXT Yacht Group will team up with Maiora to take the concept of liveability and onboard comfort to the next level and will join AB Yachts in providing the thrill of high-speed performance in absolute safety. For CBI Navi, the Group imagines a future dedicated to cutting-edge technology applied to steel boatbuilding processes.

NEXT Yacht Group will be taking part in the Cannes, Genoa and Monaco Boat Shows, bringing to the world not just its new composition of member companies but a new, eye-catching brand identity that will convey the values and strategies that drive its core mission. Significant investments are already in place to redesign the Group’s production sites, develop new models and reinforce the design and organisational structures, as coordinated by the new CEO Gennaro Candida De Matteo, who will apply his years of experience developed over the course of a long and brilliant career dedicated to the yachting industry and beyond.
