our history

experience, passion and professionalism at the service of customers

At the beginning of the new millennium, Fabio Massimo Balzano founded the Porto Vecchio Service shipyard. The aim was to provide the Port of Crotone with an area destined for storage, repair and assistance of pleasure boats passing through the tourist port of Crotone. In fact, the lack of space for shipyard sites in the Old Port led the Balzano family to invest first in the large basin of the Porto Nuovo of Crotone, where it currently owns its own state property on the wide quay of the shore.

Since then the Balzano shipyard has become an undisputed reference point for the nautical industry along the entire Ionian coast. In particular, in 2011, with the entry into the company of his son Elio Balzano, Porto Vecchio Service saw an enormous increase in the activities and specialization of work carried out on site.

Today the shipyard of Crotone - Porto Vecchio Service, has over 5,000 square meters of port dock, where it carries out hauling, launching, storage and maintenance of boats, and a large warehouse in the industrial area for particular technical works. The company also has its own mobile crane capable of lifting up to 30 tons directly on the port platform, while for larger tonnage applications it operates with large vehicles that are quickly ready to enter the port area.

porto vecchio service is a leader in Crotone in the storage of boats, hauling and launching, repairs and restoration of boats. over 100 customers from various parts of the world satisfied every year.
