The company was established in 1910 by Dominico Ievoli, the grandfather of the current president. The company owns 27 ships with a total capacity of some 180,000 dwt, 12 of which are petrol-chemical tankers, ranging between 3,700 and 26,500 dwt; 8 ships for transporting food produce, oil, water and wine which serve the Italian island communities; 3 Anchor Handling Tugs and 4 recoil vessels. Additionally the company manages petrol-chemical ships in accordance with long-term time-charter contracts with Scandinavian and European shipowners, and one time-charter ship with Japanese shipowners.

The Company is managed by its president and chief shareholder Domenico Ievoli in close cooperation with his two sons and vice presidents Attilio and Gennaro. Marnavi S.p.A. is the second shipowner after Tidewater Marine Ltd. (from New Orlean, USA), who is particularly interested in this product of the REMONTOWA Group. There are 21 ships of this kind in the shipyard’s current orderbook, in total. Two of them are being built at Northern Shipyard for the Italian shipowner.
