Genoa - From the Superyacht Report’s Superyacht Global Orderbook it appears that Italy has further consolidated its leadership in the market for large yachts over 30 metres, with a global percentage of units delivered between 2011 and 2015 of about 37.2%, equivalent to the sum of the deliveries in the same period from Holland, Turkey, the United States and the entire Asian Continent put together. It is a leadership that is also being confirmed by the 2016 trend, in which out of 424 yachts that are under construction this year, the Italian shipbuilding industry is building 177 ships, with an average length of 44.2 metres. Thanks to this, based on the index of Gross Tonnage, in the global order portfolio for 2016, 32% of the global market share is in the hands of Italian producers, while in terms of the number of orders, Italy has a 42.7% share (a clear increase compared to the 38% figure for 2015). Considering total length as a parameter, the Italian percentage is 41.7%. These are extremely prestigious figures, which confirm Italy’s leadership not just because of the number of units but because the order portfolio is characterized by larger and larger units.
