Due to the excellent, timely and accommodating service shown to the yacht, we've subsequently returned to the yard on a further three occasions for scheduled maintenance periods. On each visit, Navantia have strived and succeeded to give not only the most competitive rates and quotes, but also the very best attention, attendance and attitude.

Although our stay was short, Sequel P has been so impressed by the efficiency & the organisation of Navantia. The whole experience has been fantastic. The yard has gone above & beyond for the crew and all the contractors were a pleasure to have on board.

Very hardworking team

We have always found Navantia to be exceptionally hardworking. You have the impression that they go the extra mile here and give the yacht more personal attention, whereas elsewhere, in other yards, this is lacking. The prices are competitive and the project managers and staff are great to deal with.

Navantia is certainly one of the most professional yards I have been to. There are no endless discussions and negotiations. Navantia is straightforward; they say what they will do, and do what promised. I recommend any yacht to include Navantia as an option for yard work. Navantia produces very high quality work in a clean and organised environment.

Very pleasant stay

I was very pleased with the work done in a relatively short period at the shipyard. We were undergoing a 5 year survey, and the shipyard reacted well to unforeseen circumstances uncovered during the survey. Navantia allocated Paul as liaison and translator for the yacht, and he was enormously helpful both in the yard work environment, but also with assistance in finding accommodation, renting cars, organising golf and restaurants etc... all of which made the stay more easy and pleasant for the crew.

Excellent service delivered on time, on budget with the highest quality in mind. When push comes to shove, Navantia has the strength and ability to scramble the manpower and expertise needed. The weather in Cartagena is reliable, which means less downtime for on board exterior maintenance.

This was my third time in Cartagena and I have enjoyed every visit. Cartagena is a beautiful historic city and perfectly located when sailing from Gibraltar to any Mediterranean destination. Navantia shipyard has great facilities for technical repairs and all the personnel have been professional and very helpful.
