Roberto Lottini brings to Genesis Yachts more than three decades of experience in all phases of yacht building, including an unmatched background in the manufacture and installation of luxury custom yacht interiors.
In 1980, upon graduating from design school in Pisa, Italy, Roberto began his career in the yachting industry as General Manager of busy Italian shipyard Cantiere Viareggio. The shipyard, which has been manufacturing and fitting out yacht interiors for leading Italian builders Picchiotti, Azimut, Benetti, Tecnomarine, Falcon, Versilcraft and others since the 1960s, proved an ideal training ground for the young entrepreneur.
By the early 1990s, Roberto’s career had evolved to the point where he decided to open his own yacht-building company. In 1994, he founded Genesis Yachts in Viareggio with the mission of marrying traditional Italian craftsmanship with state-of-the-art engineering and construction technology. Genesis Yachts pioneered the concept of building truly “turn-key” yachts, fully equipped down to the selection of linens, china and crystal.
Thanks to the high standards Roberto set for his team of skilled Italian artisans, the company quickly established a reputation for quality, especially in the styling and execution of custom cabinetry, marble and lighting fixtures. In 1997, Genesis Yachts expanded its international market by opening a branch in the American yachting capital of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Under the expert guidance of Roberto and his team, Genesis Yachts today serves a global clientele of yacht owners, shipyards and designers, as well as the luxury residential industry.
Other branches of the Genesis Yachts Group include Genesis Interiors, focused on high-end yacht and residential interiors, and Cantiere Viareggio srl, serving the yachting industry with professional fitting-out and luxury interiors in Viareggio, Italy, since the 1960s.
