The History

The Amico & Co Shipyard is rich in history. The Amico family has been building and refitting ships for over 200 years, with the business passing down through the generations. The Amico family shipyards date back to 1799, Master Matteo Amico established his yard in Loano. This yard was successful up until the end of the 19th century due to the introduction of steel and steam engines. In 1885, a descendent of Matteo named Michele Amico, launched a ship maintenance and servicing business in Genoa. Michele’s son Luigi joined the family business, this formed the basis of the company that continues to thrive today. From there, to this day Amico Shipyards continues to be a family business building bigger and better with each generation. 

Today, Amico & Co is a world leader in the field of super yacht repair and refit. Amico & Co has pursed an uninterrupted commitment to the highest industry standards, utilizing the expertise and passion that the Amico family prides themselves on.
