M/Y Aviva, a 223-foot Abeking & Rasmussen, is the first yacht in for service at Savannah Yacht Center’s recently upgraded graving dock, according to Jim Berulis, company vice president for Colonial Group, the Savannah, Ga., property’s owner.

The 460- by 70-foot dry dock has a 24-foot draft. The yacht is expected to be in the yard for about a month.

Construction continues as the deepwater yard ramps up toward full service. A 25,300-square-foot warehouse and woodshop, as well as machine and fabrication shop are completed.

Other projects include the yard’s rail transfer system and 3,240-ton shiplift platform, which are expected to open early next year. A 1,200-foot floating dock is on order and expected to be in service by this summer.

Several other projects are out for bids including the administrative crew services, cafe, and paint and finishing building.
