Martinique shipyard Carenantilles has reported a milestone with the haul-out of its largest yacht yet. M/Y Pipe Dream, a 150-foot (45.7m), 400-ton Trinity built in 2003, needed emergency repairs on its stern tube system, according to Yacht Insider’s Guide. The boat, formerly named Vita, was hauled out using the yard’s 440-ton mobile lift.
According to the shipyard’s website, the Cimolai Technology MBH 440 is the largest mobile lift in the Caribbean and can haul yachts up to 164 feet long and 43 feet wide. The recently renovated yard, which also has an 80-ton lift, has stated that it can handle complete refits and repairs on any type of yacht up to 164 feet (50m).
Carenantilles operates shipyards in two locations in Martinique. For more information, visit carenantilles.com.
