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).

1952 – 1959

Luigi’s sons Adelmo, Domenico and Natale, continued the shipbuilding activity, making the important decision to move the site to the opposite side of the canal, where they had more space and it was easier to build increasingly larger boats.

1959 – 1980

The relocation to the new shipbuilding area coincided with a boom in orders, making the Vittoria shipyard a national industry as they began producing ships for a huge range of purposes with increasingly advanced technology.

1980 – 1990

During this decade, family members of the third generation began to actively take part in the shipbuilding: Paolo, Fabio, Massimo, Antonio, Luigi and Roberto, each with a specific and decisive role in the shipbuilding process.

1990

1990 – 2001

This was a period of historic orders, characterized by increasingly frequent collaborations with many foreign navies and cutting-edge innovations. A great example is the Sunrise catamaran, born largely from the creativity of Fabio Duò.

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 – today

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.

2020: this year

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.
