International Marine Management (IMM) has signed an agreement with ENA, the manager of a 180m dry dock in Fort de France, Martinique, to allow superyachts access to the facility.

Since changing hands at the beginning of 2015, ENA has undertaken improvements to the dry dock and surrounding area, according to a press release. The dock is 180m long, 23.5m wide, with 7.6m draft (above the blocks).

“We are thrilled with this new addition to our capacity,” said Norina Edelman, an IMM director. “A dry dock of this scale … is a unique offering in the Caribbean. Having originally worked in Europe, our team is familiar with working on 100m+ superyachts and the unique challenges that these very large vessels present.”

The dry dock is located in an ISPS-compliant area. Metal workshops are onsite, with ABS, Lloyd’s and BV-certified welders available. French specialist Sud Moteur is able to assist with general mechanical works.

Yacht projects will be managed by IMM principals Fabrice Maitre and Jean-Michel Beron, who have been responsible for a range of refits throughout the French Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts.

For more information, contact Edelman at +1 202-255-7488 or nedelman@imm-yachting.com.
