Nautical Structures now in Barcelona


Florida-based boarding systems manufacturer Nautical Structures opened a sales and service center at the shipyard MB92 in Barcelona, Spain, in September. According to Nautical Structures President Colin Kiley, the operation will be managed by Worldwide Service Director Ron Beilman and European Sales Director Rob Knoop. The Nautical Structures’ MB92 Sales and Service Center will be initially staffed by four specialists, with plans to grow staffing to 12 employees.

“We are delighted that Nautical Structures will be joining us at our Barcelona facilities,” MB92 Commercial Director Henk Dreijer said in a statement. “This agreement demonstrates our shared commitment to providing our clients with the very best service here in Barcelona and in our new dry dock facilities in La Ciotat.”

“MB92 affords a uniquely powerful partnership, allowing deployment of both NSI technicians, and factory trained, authorized regional partners to facilitate all categories of sales and service work.” Beilman stated in a company press release.

Nautical Structures, based in Largo, Florida, is a 30-year-old company specializing in boarding and tender-handling systems for the luxury and blue-water maritime markets. Product lines include transom lifts, gangplanks, passerelles, accommodation stairs and shell doors.
