The new facility, equipped with state-of-the-art tools, allows Monaco Marine accommodate up to 28 yachts at any one time. It becomes one of the largest sites dedicated to the maintenance of 50-metre (164-foot) superyachts in Europe, spanning 40,000 square metres.
30-metre Moonen yacht Livadia, 47-metre Swiftships yacht La Polonia and 54-metre Trinity Yacht vessel Keri Lee III have already been hauled out for maintenance at the site.
Located in a secure and protected bay, the yard offers a dock of 148 metres – allowing 12 to 14 superyachts to stay for a technical pit stop or works afloat. On the ground, thanks to a brand new 560-tonne travel lift, the same number of superyachts can be hauled out for major refits or class registrations. A 35-tonne crane completes the list of available tools.
A team of 40 workers, from craftsmen to project managers and crew concierge services, assist the clients during their shipyard period.
A further service is also offered by the yard: a specific marina dedicated to superyacht tenders, with three floating pontoons allowing them free access to the sea.
