Intermarine is an Italian shipyard developing, designing and producing vessels for defence and civil use, as well as marine systems and components.
Founded as a naval shipyard specialized in design and manufacture of marine craft in Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GRP), Intermarine initially took up the production of leisure boats.
As early as 1970, when most craft made in GRP were still relatively small, Intermarine recognized the potential of this material and began to carry out researches into new resin and glass fiber formulation, so to make them suitable for the construction of large vessels, as well as to develop innovative methods of construction, and quickly became a world leader in the field of shipbuilding in composite materials, mainly of Mine Countermeasures Vessels (MCMVs).
During the years, thanks also to the merging of other shipyards and particularly of “Rodriquez Cantieri Navali”, specialist in aluminum shipbuilding, the company expanded its range of production and continued investing heavily in technological researches 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”.
Today the production consists mainly of:
A dedicated department, known as “Rodriquez Marine Systems”, produces, since 1998, auxiliary on-board components, such as monitoring and control systems, hydraulic systems, and stabilization systems.
The main characteristic of Intermarine is the capability to develop, design, build and test vessels tailored to the customer requirements.
The design of Intermarine products is mostly carried out within the R&D department, with the support, for specific and very peculiar aspects, of the most renowned Italian and international Companies.
The Company operates three shipyards: the synergy between the specific production facilities and the research, engineering and development centers, allows the optimization of the production processes.
The Headquarters of Intermarine and the Research and Development Department are located in Sarzana and La Spezia, where the activities are focused on the construction and the outfitting of vessels in composite material (mainly Mine Countermeasure Vessels and Fast Patrol Boats). The shipyard optimized for the construction of craft in aluminum or steel is located in Messina.
