La Ciotat yard expands


Compositeworks, a shipyard in La Ciotat in the South of France, has an agreement with the Atlantic Refit Center to operate in its two dry docks in La Rochelle. The dry docks measure 107m and 176m in length and comprise the only megayacht facility on the French Atlantic Coast.

Plans are under way to build a 35m-high hangar to cover the 176m dry-dock, with delivery scheduled for September 2018.
