With its state-of-the-art Cascina facility in Pisa, Italy, CMC Marine has grown and strengthened its position as a market leader in the industrial segment of fin stabilizers, steering systems and thrusters for yachts and passenger boats over 12 metres long. But CMC Marine’s story began in 2005 when the company was founded on the twenty years of experience of Alessandro Cappiello, who has been the CEO since day one.

Today, the brand has approximately 70 employees, mostly engineers, which is partially to credit for its specialized approach, precise design, and ability to guarantee the performance of its products. CMC Marine designs and manufactures bow/stern thrusters and the most sophisticated stabilisation systems on the market, including the Stabilis Electra range, the very first stabilisation system in the world featuring electric rather than hydraulic operation, thanks to which, in 2011, the company received the Dame Award, the most prestigious accolade for technological innovation in the global boating industry.

These products are already installed on hundreds of new yachts worldwide, plus the over 1000 refitted yachts CMC has worked on, spanning most brands and models. The sheer breadth and intimacy of the brand’s relationship with the yachting industry is a source of constant inspiration, which has always fueled its drive to break new ground. That, and consistent, considerable investments into R&D, in collaboration with Italy’s best universities, shipyards’ technical departments and technical partners, has kept CMC on the cutting edge of the industry.

While CMC Marine’s headquarters, manufacturing, and engineering facilities are concentrated in Pisa, the storied Tuscan city, the Service Network, which includes numerous Certified Service and Installation Centers, extends throughout all the world’s most popular yachting waters. The world’s leader superyacht builders need to guarantee their clients a seamless and safe experience with every system onboard, and CMC is chosen so frequently because the brand excels by these metrics, as well as efficiency, silence, and reliability.

The brand was the first to offer a fully integrated suite, including thrusters, wheelhouse, and stabilizers – all-electric – and even when CMC systems are mixed with third-party ones, the innovative software installed keeps all the parts in perfect communication.

CMC Marine recently sponsored Superyacht Technology Network Show & Conference, Pietro Cappiello and Suzanna Travaglio were in attendance.
