Tradition, prestige and technology: four generations of shipwrights in the world of wooden boats

Erio Matteri carries forward the style and prestige that have remained constant over time, always looking for new interpretations of ancient forms.

The absolute, generations-old refusal of mass production has allowed the Matteri shipyard to continue to be the same artisanal activity as one hundred and sixty years ago, capable of offering “customer-made” boats of the highest quality, satisfying any need.

Erio Matteri, is not only a boat builder, but one of the most sensitive restorers, appreciated all over the world.


Since 1865, five generations of nautical builders have handed down ancient manual techniques.

The phases from design to construction are personally handled by Erio Matteri, certified Shipwright, registered in the Register of Shipbuilders of Genoa. In our shipyard the projects are not created on the computer but we create a scale model and production begins from there, which is why each boat is one of a kind.

Wood is the main element.

There is no mass production or numerical control, every single piece is worked by hand with l ‘use of ancient tools.
