Home / About us


With great pride, we present our new “San Rocco International Shipyard” project in Muggia, a picturesque village in the province of Trieste along the Adriatic coast. The idea behind this project stems from our love of the sea, the boats and ship building, combined with our experience in business, our passion for innovation and our confidence in the future.

The acquisition of the San Rocco Shipyards arose from the strong will and experience of a group of naval engineers: Mr. Nilsson Vuck Gobbi Benelli, Mr. Juan Jose Balaguer Mora, and Mr. Matthew Sainz Smith. Together with our main strategic and operational partners and core team, we shared the belief that it was essential to move towards a concrete project for the redevelopment of both the area and the company. From the very first moment, we believed in the potential that this entire area offered.


our idea

The idea for the ambitious project of purchasing the San Rocco Shipyards was born from Juan Josè Balaguer Mora and Nilsson Gobbi Benelli’s passion for the sea, the boats in general and shipbuilding. This was combined with the entrepreneurial experience we have acquired over the years and our passion for excellence and innovation.

With our strong background in shipbuilding, we are determined to preserve the values and philosophy of its glorious past.  As is evident from its illustrious history, the San Rocco Shipyard has always welcomed new challenges. We are ready to face the challenges of the future.


Our ambition is to make San Rocco International Shipyard a centre of excellence in the panorama of the northern Adriatic, making it a point of reference for ship owners, entrepreneurs in the sector, as well as for our customers.
Our desire is to transform the existing area of the San Rocco Shipyards and to launch an important entrepreneurial project with a new business model. Our goal is the gradual modernization of the area within the Shipyard and to attain a level of excellence across of the entire range of our offerings. Our ambition is to provide a range of services that satisfy the needs of the customer, from their arrival to their departure.

For Strategic Management, entrepreneurship today also means “being personally involved in building projects, providing jobs and anticipating future trends”.


Our goal has always been to create unique projects that continuously set us apart, through innovative research and production processes. We recognize that what makes this journey interesting is the passion for research, the ability to break long-standing paradigms, and exploring new territory far from the disciplinary boundaries of tradition. We are committed to providing innovative services and solutions that anticipate our customers’ needs and expectations, ensuring their complete satisfaction through our work.

Our values are our compass. This is reflected in the rules of conduct of San Rocco International Shipyard with customers and all stakeholders.
