A hundred years of experience in always navigating towards innovation
1927 – 1952
Luigi Duò Papa arrived in Adria in 1927, with a lot of experience as a carpenter and caulker in various “squeri” (gondola manufacturing workshops) in the Venice Lagoon. In the city of Pula, he quickly found employment at the Bertasi, workshop, where he played an increasingly important role, first as a partner and then as the sole owner of the company, which was renamed “Cantiere Navale Vittoria di Duò Luigi e Figli” (Vittoria Shipyard of Duò Luigi and Sons).
2001 – 2012
In 2001, after Adelmo Duò passed away, the third generation took on an active management role, succeeding in carrying the company through a period of economic crisis, which it recovered from to become stronger than ever before thanks to a talented team, determined to put unique products on the market.
2012 – 2020
In recent years, the Vittoria Shipyard has established itself both nationally and internationally, building patrol boats for the Italian Guardia di Finanza, the Italian Coast Guard, the Tunisian Navy, the Greek Navy and many others, not forgetting the two famous, highly technological Interceptor models.
The Vittoria Shipyard is still a leading company nationally in military and civil shipbuilding, and more, having received numerous awards and moving forward into the fourth generation of the Duò family, keeping alive the family pride that has remained unchanged for almost a hundred years.
The Duò family has always faced great challenges, and the time has come to face another completely new one, but with an exceptional history full of experience behind them, bringing attention to detail, commitment, precision and quality.
Thanks to the desire to apply a hundred years of experience in shipbuilding to the luxury boat market a new brand with a great history is born: Vittoria Yachts.
