IMS adds yard

ADVERTISEMENT

IMS Shipyard has begun work transforming the former St-Mandrier naval air station in Toulon bay in the South of France into a full-service superyacht refit and maintenance yard with 100 employees. IMS 700 expects to open late this year.


Plans include adding 80 berths to accommodate up to 100 yachts from 20m-80m, a haul-out area, lifting equipment up to 670 ton, a floating breakwater and a floating pontoon, draft up to 10m, buildings for in-house crew, a 500-square-meter crew quarters specifically for yacht crew (including offices, multimedia room, fitness, terrace and BBQ), and a VIP office in the control tower.


The yard has a 30-year lease on the basin of 50,000 square meters and on the hard of 60,000 square meters, five times the space on its site IMS 300. The property also includes four sheds for housing three yachts up to 50m at the same time.


In business for 25 years, IMS Shipyard said in a news release that this new yard makes it the largest yacht repair yard in the Mediterranean with a total surface area of 130,000 square meters. It has the capacity to house up to 100 20m-80m yachts with 25 in-water slips and 75 spots on the hard, including 35 in sheds.
