Malta-based refit and engineering specialist Melita Marine Group has announced it has completed the majority acquisition of ptw Shipyard Tarragona in Spain to serve the growing number of vessels that visit this thriving superyacht hub.

With a shipyard area of over 15,000 square metres and more than 3,000 square metres of workshop and office space, a 180-metre technical quay and a travel lift for yachts up to 50 metres, the now-named ptw Shipyard – Melita Marine Group is now able to offer a complete suite of services in Spain.

The relationship is a strategic move for Melita Marine Group to consolidate its position in the Mediterranean superyacht service sector. The group now has the capacity to offer its yard and engineering services at its dry-docking facilities up to 100 metres, as well as in-water berths up to 180 metres in Malta, Greece and Spain.

Pierre Balzan, chairman of Melita Marine Group, commented, “We are very proud to have struck this partnership with our Spanish colleagues. By spreading its wings on both sides of the Mediterranean basin, our Group now offers the superyacht industry all the services it needs, whenever they are in the locations we operate in, or they need us to fly to their location.”
