The Porto Lotti Marina location in La Spezia is close to some of Italy’s biggest yards

Hill Robinson Yacht Management Services has opened a new office in La Spezia, Italy. The Porto Lotti Marina office is on the doorstep of the Baglietto, Sanlorenzo, Fincantieri, Ferretti and Perini yards, and is close to several other Italian yacht-builders too.

The new office will be offering technical services, compliance, yacht management and project management for new-build and refit projects. Pino di Mora, Hill Robinson’s senior project manager, is currently on hand to support owners, captains and crew in his native Italy.

Hill Robinson’s business development specialist in Italy, Rosanna Capitani, will be promoting other services – specifically crew placement, payroll management, charter and more.

The La Spezia office recently held its first technical training day seminar, which was well-attended by around 30 industry professionals, captains and crew. The event included presentations from Marine Nano Tech, Rolls Royce on hybrid and electric propulsion, and the Atlas Group.

Further presentations on IT technology by Pibiesse, medical assistance by Yacht Medical Supplies, and cyber security by Lloyds Register were also held.

La Spezia’s Porto Lotti is one of Italy’s most exclusive marinas, with its own repair facility and qualified staff. It is located in a sheltered gulf next to Lerici, and has been awarded the international Blue Flag label in recognition of its status as an outstanding marina. 

Hill Robinson is an independent yacht management company providing a full range of yacht management services to international clients worldwide.
