Clear Yacht Interiors and Ocean Marine Yacht Center have announced the formation of a strategic alliance to position Ocean Marine’s Portsmouth shipyard as one of the only U.S. facilities to offer complete yard and interior design/build services.
Jim Bento, president and CEO of Ocean Marine said, “Our goal is to offer owners and captains the expertise and convenience of comprehensive services. With Clear Yacht Interiors as part of our team, we are able to create seamless refits, ensuring a streamlined process for our clients by executing everything from technical requirements, paint and repair services to interior design and custom build-outs.”
Joyce Clear, owner of Clear Yacht Interiors commented, “This is an exciting time for us. Our philosophy has always been to offer clients a full service experience. This is why we are positioned as one of the only international interior design firms with full joinery and custom woodworking capabilities in addition to our full-service offerings from interior design and fabrication to installation of nearly every interior design element. Our new relationship with Ocean Marine takes this a step further by offering clients a remarkable integrated yacht refit experience.”
Ocean Marine’s megayacht repair facility has a 1,250-ton Syncrolift capable of hauling yachts to 235' via a ground level rail transfer system to a paint/repair building capable of housing two megayachts simultaneously.
Both bays of the indoor paint repair facility offer a cascading water wall washdown system, smooth panelled walls, overhead and recessed surround lighting, pressurised ventilation system, and heated floors for year-round operation.
Clear Yacht Interiors is redesigning one of the many buildings on the 19 acre shipyard to cater to captains and crew with a lounge, computer stations, media centre and conference room. They will be showcasing their design capabilities including custom furniture, cabinetry, carpeting, decorative wall finishes, upholstery, soft goods and their upcoming LED lighting line.
In addition to incorporating a comprehensive interior design studio, Clear Yacht Interiors will have a new custom joinery shop, expanding upon the capabilities of the joinery shop Ocean Marine currently has on site.
