French yard to open in Cuba

ADVERTISEMENT

French Riviera-based refit and repair company Nautech issued a press release in October saying it planned to build “an impressive facility” in Cuba. Located to the east of the Bay Havana, the yard will offer “full-service refit and repair for yachts up to 140m in length, with six dockside berths with a combined length of 1,100m and a dry dock of 151m in length and 24m in width,” according to the release.

The company has created a network of yards along the French Mediterranean coast, including in Marseille and Villefranche-sur-Mer.

The location in Cuba has done marine repair for 20 years and has a dedicated workforce of more than 500 employees, the company said. Nautech’s existing network of subcontractors will assist the local staff.

It was unclear when the facility might be open. Company officials did not return a request for more information.

“I am excited about this next step in the growth of the company that was founded by family over 85 years ago, said Nautech CEO Pascal Voisin, who is leading the company through an investment for international expansion. “The values that we have fostered over the generations continue to be upheld in all the work that we carry out, no matter where the location. Now looking to the future, we hope that Nautech Cuba will come to represent the reference for refit in the Caribbean.”
