Italian naval architecture company Zuccon International Project has announced the launch of Zuccon Superyacht Design. The Rome-based naval design company has set up this new division to focus exclusively on the study and customisation of new superyacht projects.

Zuccon International Project began designing superyachts with the 46M Al Fahed way back in 1986. The steel and aluminium vessel was a project built in the Baglietto shipyard in Varazze. One of its latest projects in this segment was Chopi Chopi, an 80M superyacht built by CRN.

Both Italian companies have worked together on a number of projects, including the 60M Blu Eyes, the 43M Lady Trudy and the 60M Darling’s Danama.
