Superyacht refit and repair shipyard Marina Barcelona 92 (MB92) and Triton Submarines LLC have announced that they have signed a Master Relationship Agreement to create the world’s first Submersible Supercentre in Barcelona, to provide large yachts with comprehensive submersible services in the Mediterranean.
Headquartered in Vero Beach, Florida, Triton Submarines has already established an after-sales service and maintenance division for the EMEA region in Barcelona, with the new partnership set to “significantly enhance” its capability, presence and support capabilities in the Mediterranean and beyond.
The Supercentre will provide large yachts with submersible integration, surveying, repair and maintenance services, with the agreement guaranteeing active cooperation between the organisations in a number of operational areas. As such, MB92 Barcelona will act as Triton’s preferred partner in the Mediterranean, with Triton utilising MB92’s Barcelona facilities to conduct its specialist works.
Upon signing the agreement, MB92 president and CEO, Pepe García-Aubert, said, “At the very core of MB92 Barcelona is the pledge to provide our clients with the very best service options and, therefore, it is vital that we form close relationships with the very pinnacle of superyacht-service providers. In forming this agreement with Triton Submarines, whose global reputation is for prestige, innovative design, quality production and service, it further underlines this commitment.
“It is an absolute pleasure for us at MB92 to welcome Triton into our Barcelona facilities. We share the same values and vision for innovation and quality, and we are excited by all the possibilities that our new relationship will present to each other and, especially, to superyacht owners”.
Patrick Lahey, co-founder and president of Triton Submarines, commented, “Partnering with MB92 Barcelona, a company so respected globally for their professionalism, expertise and facilities, is a truly exciting development for Triton and further demonstrates our absolute commitment to delivering the best possible service for our clients on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Barcelona is now firmly established as our centre of operations in the EMEA region. This partnership with MB92 provides invaluable support to the existing highly qualified and expert technical and support team in our Barcelona office. We are confident this partnership will pay significant dividends, not only for Triton and MB92, but for our ever-expanding portfolio of owners, the growing fleet of submersibles and crew who operate them.”
