Ranieri International Story, from Soverato to the rest of the world
The work of Pietro Ranieriis characterized by a great effort and by the spirit of sacrifice and innovation which allowed small Italian enterprises to “conquer” the world in terms of innovation and style. After the beginning in 1966 with a business in motors, the interest of Pietro Ranieri turned to boating: which was at its very beginning in southern Italy and in particular in Soverato, where he started his activity.
Since the very beginning, each model was designed keeping in mind safety and reliability. Then, in the early eighties, the participation to boat shows made the sales opportunities grow, starting with a national dealer’s network.
Later on, Ranieri International Story tells how the activity has grown much, thanks to the contribution of Salvatore and Antonio Ranieri, The reputation in Italy and Europe has raised, thanks to the evolution in style and technology, with the development coming from tests in nautical laboratories in order to increase functionality, performance and comfort. The range expansion allowed the boatyard to get a positive response not only in Italy, but also in several European countries where boats from Ranieri International are much appreciated.
Ranieri International Story: everything in Italy
The effort in keeping everything in Italy is one of the core values for Pietro Ranieri, whose aim is to keep under control each aspect of boat design and construction, and to solve any possible probem in the shortest time. The water front close to the new plant helps in testing any solution as soon as it’s adopted.
Talking of technical partnerships, Ranieri International has signed deals with the main engine builders, such as Suzuki, Yamaha, Mercury, Honda.
As for the distribution network, the cooperation with the Italian and international dealers is always a priority in order to support customers in terms of assistance and logistics.

Ranieri International Story: a new era with Cayman ribs
The story of Ranieri International is characterized by the production of rigid boats. But the latet chapter talks of the range of Cayman ribs (here’s our test of Cayman 31, from BoatMag International).
Rigid inflatable boats is always much appreciated by boaters, so dealers wanted this further option and in two seasons Ranieri International was able to provide them a range spacing from 19 to 31 feet.
Today, Ranieri International offers a line up of 32 rigid boats and 10 ribs, making them a point of reference for the market as they can satisfy the needs of any boater.
