“Do not be jealous if we love your boat more than you.”
This is one of Bellini Nautica’s most famous mottos.
For over fifty years synonymous with excellence, passion and undoubted professionalism, if boats and boating are your passion, then you must know more.
Founded in 1960, the shipyard, which today boasts a modern and avant-garde structure, is located in Clusane, on Lake Iseo.
SALES AND SHOWROOM
Bellini Nautica is a leader in the sale of new and used yachts, dinghies and motor boats. Here you can buy a wide range of Riva accessories, such as toys, caps, smartphone or tablet covers, mugs, etc., and accessories, by Garmin, Fusion, Navigon, Navionics and Raymarine nautical apparel.
In the showroom, you can see and touch the new and used luxury boats: Bellini Nautica boasts solid partnerships with top brands, above all Cranchi and Riva, a timeless Dolce Vita icon.
In Corte Franca, a few km from Clusane where the company is located, there is the exclusive Bellini Nautica museum. The exhibition collects the hulls of Romano Bellini’s private collection of vintage Riva boats, which marked the exclusive and fascinating period of the Bella Vita.
The Museum can be visited by appointment from Monday to Friday, from 9.00am to 12.00pm and from 2.00pm to 6.00pm (the ticket price is €25).
There are 15 examples of Riva, excellences of Made in Italy, true rarities, icons of luxury and beauty.
Visiting this museum you will be able to see: Riva Aquarama, a motorboat symbol of the nautical world from various eras, one from 1965 and one from 1971, Riva Aquarama Super from 1971, Riva Aquarama Lungo (very rare, only 7 were produced) and Super from 1971, Riva Aquarama Special from 1977, Riva Ariston from 1956, Riva Florida from 1958, Riva Junior from 1966, Riva Lancetta from 1951, Riva Olimpic from 1973, Riva Scoiattolo from 1957, Riva Sebino from 1954 and Riva Super Ariston from 1973.
There is also the only existing Riva Racer, used for the “Pavia – Venice” competition in 1929 and probably the oldest boat that exists, and a Riva Inglesina, built by Serafino Riva, Carlo’s father, at the end of the Twenties.
In addition to Romano Bellini’s private collection of vintage Riva boats, the visit continues in the company, where Bellini Nautica restores all these vintage boats.

CRANCHI MOTORBOAT RENTAL WITHOUT DRIVER
All those who have a boat license can rent a Cranchi motorboat to navigate the waters of Lake Iseo and be overwhelmed by the world of navigation and spectacular landscapes.
The Cranchi motorboat (you can choose between two 24 or 27-foot motorboats) can be hired for half or one day. Reservations can be made by telephone or directly at the shipyard, by contacting the Bellini Nautica offices, directly overlooking the lake.
The excellence of Bellini Nautica is also decreed by the wide and complete range of services it is able to offer. Attention and scrupulous care are two characteristics that fully describe this company.
From storage to refitting, through technical assistance (overhaul, engine repairs), Bellini Nautica reserves the best services for its customers.
One of the best services is certainly the boat storage. Cantieri Bellini provides a total of 300 places in three warehouses: two in Iseo, one overlooking the lake and one at a distance of 800 metres, and one in Corte Franca, not far from Clusane.
During storage, winterising and preparing the boat for the following season are also carried out and each boat is cleaned, covered and returned in perfect condition.
An excellent service is the refitting of boats, to renew and refresh the appearance of your boat.
The Restoration section is the pride of this company: it is able to accurately restore any vintage model, bringing it back to its original splendour.
The Bellini Nautica port has over 100 berths and is completely floating, safe for moored boats and the environment.
There is also a supply service for boats and restaurants: a few metres away is the camping (owned by Bellini Nautica) with a restaurant, bar, snack bar and mini market. During the summer season, the restaurant service is open every day and the bar opens at 7:30am and closes at midnight. On request, you can take advantage of the convenient “on board” service, directly on the boat.
