VSY: first European shipyard to sign the Wood Forever Pact with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation

VSY’s commitment to sustainability is becoming more and more tangible – even beyond the quality of care and systems developed on their Eco-yachts and the CO2 compensation for the brand-new 72 m, Stella Maris, at
her debut during the Monaco Yacht Show 2012 and in Genoa as the flagship of this year’s Show.
On September 19th in Monaco, Cristiana and Simone Longarini, owners and respectively M.D. and Chairman of VSY, signed the Wood Forever Pact launched by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. VSY is the first European shipyard to sign this agreement subscribing to transparency and qualification in the timber industry to guarantee maximum quality and ethical respect. These are questions close to the heart of the owners of the Viareggio-based yard, who have taken up the challenge of new necessary business models able to substantiate an innovative vision of the yachting sector and re-launch its fundamental values. For VSY, sustainability is above all not a luxury but a responsibility –– and represents a long-term commitment – originally made when the shipyard first opened and which will see it as an increasingly front-line protagonist in this field also in the future.
