Genova Industrie Navali: the leading private player in the shipyard industry in Italy

Founded in Genoa in 2008, the Genova Industrie Navali group unites two of the city's historic shipyards: Mariotti - specialised in the construction of ultra-luxury cruise ships, and San Giorgio del Porto - recognised worldwide as a point of reference for the repair, maintenance and conversion of all types of ship.

Over the years, the GIN group has expanded, with the acquisition of Chantier Naval de Marseille - a modern and efficient shipyard in the Port of Marseille (France) with the largest dry dock in the Mediterranean, the establishment, together with the company Fratelli Neri, of Piombino Industrie Marittime - a multi-purpose shipyard with high safety standards in the Port of Piombino (Province of Livorno), and with the creation of Florida Marine Industries - an operating unit dedicated to the American cruise market with headquarters in Miami (Florida, USA).

The business lines of the Genova Industrie Navali group are new build, design and engineering, ship repair, ship conversion and ship recycling operations, ship outfitting, the design, production and installation of systems (HVAC, fire protection, electrical panels, onboard systems) and all painting and surface treatment operations.

Genova Industrie Navali is a one-stop shop with extensive experience in the different areas of the shipbuilding industry, always able to offer the best technical solutions and full project management, whether designing a new ship or restructuring an existing one, fitting one out or completely demolishing one in accordance with the highest environmental standards; our companies are used to working together, exchanging ideas and coordinating with each other to ensure an impeccable service at all times, while fully respecting deadlines and safety standards.



Drawing on the experience of its historic companies, and through continued investment in research, innovation, development and the establishment of new infrastructure, GIN offers solutions at the forefront of the global ship repair and shipbuilding market. With continuous care for the environment and worker safety, Genova Industrie Navali follows the strictest quality standards set by European and international regulations and is always able to offer sustainable, effective and responsible solutions.

The shipbuilding industry in Italy, with approximately 27,000 companies, is worth around 4.5 billion euros of investment and is leader in Europe for its contribution to the economy. Italian shipyards operate in highly specialised market niches at high technological level, where the growth of the world fleet has led to a growth in demand both in terms of construction and in terms of conversion and modernisation.

In Genoa, 79 companies operate in the ship repair sector, with around 4,000 employees and over 2,500 workers employed in related industries. As part of the development of the waterfront and the Port of Genoa, a large-scale redevelopment of spaces is planned along with the construction of new facilities where environment, training and infrastructure will play a key role.

Genova Industrie Navali is at the forefront of the project for the new Port of Genoa: a bridge connecting the city, its community and manufacturing activities to the world.  


Our vision

Every individual and every company working with the Genova Industrie Navali group become the architects of our shared vision for growth: a future based on the continuous search for effective, sustainable and responsible solutions, with the aim of becoming a global point of reference for the shipbuilding industry.

Our Mission

Environment, worker safety, care and ongoing development of staff. These are the pillars on which our objectives are based, namely customer satisfaction, looking after our partners and developing local areas and communities.

Our values

In this sector, customer satisfaction is everything; for this reason our aim is to continue to grow and to distinguish ourselves by offering the best available solutions quickly and efficiently, working hard to develop a complete range of services and products for all sectors.


Conception, design, construction. Three concepts that always have a single point of reference: the person. Ongoing training and quality of work form the basis on which we organise our activities. Our network of professionals and the pursuit of shared objectives enable us to achieve excellence.

Safety and environmental sustainability

Each of our employees constitutes the backbone of our activities and almost 100 years of history in our region reveal the special importance of the link between land and sea for Genoa. Our history and work culture have always been combined with looking after the health of our staff and the environment.

Quality, research and innovation

The quality of work is achieved step by step, ship by ship. And while ships' hulls forge their routes to the sea, excellence in training, research and innovation takes shape in our shipyards.

Customer care

GIN is the leading private player in Italy in the shipbuilding industry which is one of the key sectors in the Country System. To achieve such a result, we always ask the most of ourselves in order to provide our customers with the planning and support they need every day, all year round.

Genova Industrie Navali retains the experience and know-how of the historic companies that make up the group

Our shipyards have been building and repairing ships since the early 20th century. Since then, many things have changed: there have been many people in all roles, technologies have changed and with them the size of ships, materials and project timescales. One thing has stayed the same and that is the most valuable asset of all: the immeasurable wealth of knowledge handed down over the years that makes Genova Industrie Navali a proficient and experienced partner with expert staff who are used to working in synergy.
