Italy Italian
Cantieristica = shipbuilding
Diporto = pleasure boat

Does anybody know what "cantieristica da diporto" is in English (something like a small shipbuilding yard in a tourist port, where pleasure boats undergo small repairs)

    I think the sort of thing you are talking about is normally known as a boatyard. A shipyard handles larger craft, while a boatyard would typically (but not necessarily exclusively) cater for smaller vessels.
