International Marine Management (IMM) recently announced that, starting this season; it will expand its operations to include a base in the Caribbean superyacht hub, St Maarten.
Located in IGY’s Isle de Sol Marina, IMM will provide full technical assistance to yachts throughout the island, as well as those on neighbouring islands such as St Barths and St Kitts and Nevis.
Adding to its existing facilities in Guadeloupe and Martinique, where IMM can haul out vessels of 130m+, the St Maarten location will reinforce the company’s ability to serve yachting clients throughout the Caribbean. IMM will introduce logistics services in St Maarten, including yachting protection and thermoplastic covering, which will permit its client base of superyachts to undertake more significant technical works during the winter.
By using existing suppliers on the island, as well as in-house labour, IMM will provide a full range of technical services. These include, but are not limited to, yacht-standard painting, hydraulics, teak decking, interior works, and everything in between.
Fabrice Maitre, founder and director at International Marine Management, commented on the announcement, "We are very excited about this new phase in IMM's development, and how it will increase our ability to serve our client base throughout the Caribbean. St Maarten is a natural hub for superyachts between their charters and owner trips, so we can assist yachts very efficiently here - whether it is to plan haul-outs in Guadeloupe and Martinique, or to carry out in-water refit and maintenance in St Maarten or neighbouring islands."
