Motonautica Vesuviana was founded in 1994 by the Engineer Vincenzo Nappo, and his passion for both the sea and the Rigid Inflatable Boats (R.I.Bs). The experience gained through years of marine and navigation practices as well as nautical camping, became the springboard for the design and construction of R.I.Bs. which grant the best responses to the needs of the most demanding enthusiasts.

Right from the beginning Motonautica Vesuviana (MV) established three main pillars upon which its shipyard was created: Quality, Design and Reliability. Thus the company designed and realized the entire production cycle inside the factory, ranging from the initial project design, to models, moulds, fibreglass (VTR), inox, wood and rubber parts ending with the fabrics and upholstery fittings.
