Capelli: the story of a shipyard, founded by a passion for the River Po

In 1974, Davide Capelli founded the Capelli shipyard in Northern Italy. Thanks to his love for the River Po and his infinite creativity, he decided to launch this company. Initially, the shipyard specialized in the construction of flat keel fiberglass river boats. Later, with the arrival of his young son Umberto, the company quickly diversified. Indeed, he focused on the design and manufacture of innovative canoes for competition.

Today Capelli is a major player in the manufacture of small and medium-sized boats.

The Capelli Fisherman: a decisive success at the Genoa boat show that marked a new era for the company

The boat is welcomed with great enthusiasm. This success marked the beginning of a new era for the company. Subsequently, in 1992, Capelli diversifies its production. The yard launched a range of fiberglass keel inflatable boats, which quickly conquered a substantial share of the market.
