Intermarine is an Italian shipyard, designing and producing vessels for commercial use, for leisure and for defence.
On December 2012 the Company has incorporated Rodriquez Cantieri Navali, Conam and Rodriquez Marine System trademarks.
Intermarine has the capability to build vessels in the range up to 70 meters using all established shipbuilding materials, mainly aluminum and composite (or FRP, Fiber Reinforced Plastic).
A dedicated department within the shipyard, produces, since 1998, auxiliary on-board components, including monitoring and control systems, hydraulic systems, and stabilization systems, installed onboard most of the Company vessels and marketed globally as well.
The Company, in its long history, has heavily invested in technological research devoted to the best development and exploitation of the construction materials (FRP and aluminum), along with hull optimization and stability systems, so that the history of Intermarine is a succession of “technological first”:
- in 1956 Rodriquez, today Intermarine, launched the first hydrofoil for commercial application (“Freccia del Sole”)
- in early Eighties Intermarine launched the “Lerici” Mine Countermeasure Vessels, the first large GRP vessel built in “monocoque single-skin structure, without reinforcement”
- in 1993 Rodriquez delivered the first and still the fastest monohull ferry for passenger and vehicles (the “Guizzo”, a 100-meter vessel capable of a service speed of 47 knots)
The continuous investment of Intermarine in the field of technological research and of innovation, has kept the Company on the leading edge of the marine technology.
The Company operates three shipyards in Italy: the synergy between the specific production facilities and the research, engineering and development centres, allows for the transfer of technology and know-how to the diverse elements of the group, thereby maintaining a continuous quality improvement and an optimization of the production processes.
