With the opening of the IMS 700 site near Toulon, IMS becomes the largest yacht repair shipyard in the Mediterranean.

The site is intended for yacht refit, repair and maintenance of boats from 20-80 meters. Together, the yards will be able to accommodate up to 100 yachts.

Work continues on the site, with 2,700 cubic meters of earth removed and reused, close to 8,000 tons of asphalt laid on the hard-standing area, and nearly 8km of cable sheaths for the cables.

“Eighty people working full time on the site, i.e. 20,000 working hours until the completion of the shipyard, and we are doubling our in-house staff,” said Denis Pellegrino, president of IMS Shipyard. “This is a rare and extremely stimulating development project for all of us. We are proud to have successfully completed the first stage of the challenge. This is just the beginning.”

Eleven more haul outs were planned for December. The shipyard will be fully completed and the site will be inaugurated for full capacity opening at the end of March.
