All about Arno brand
The Arno Shipyard is now known by the name Leopard Catamarans. It all began in 1907, when Giuseppe Picchiotti set up his first boatbuilding yard on the Arno River on the west coast of Italy. He developed the yard with his sons and it has been handed down from generation to generation. At first, it produced work and utility boats, but in 1973 it built its first yacht. Made of wood, it had a lasting impact on the history of the boatyard. Orders flooded in and the 'Cantiere Navale Arno' became one of the great names in Italian luxury boatbuilding.
Meanwhile, construction methods evolved and the first polyester boat was built in 1984. At the turn of the millennium, the Arno yard became too small and, in order to be more functional, production moved to the banks of the Navicelli Canal on the outskirts of Pisa.
With its new 92,000 m² (27.74 acre) facility, it was able to undertake some very ambitious projects. Arno: generations of experience! The structure of the company has evolved, and the shipyard now bears the name Leopard Catamarans. But four members of the Picchiotti family are still at the helm: almost 120 years after the company was founded by Guiseppe, his descendants continue to build boats. Although they now use the most modern technical means, they maintain the same standards of excellence they inherited from their forefather and their name is still associated with the most luxurious motor yachts.
