MB92 strengthens position in La Ciotat

ADVERTISEMENT

Marina Barcelona 92 has acquired Blohm+Voss La Ciotat, the exclusive operator of the dry dock in La Ciotat Shipyard facilities, in an agreement with Blohm+Voss, part of the Lürssen Group.

Headquartered in Barcelona, MB92 Group shipyards provide service, refit, repair and maintenance for yachts from 115 feet (35m) to 656 feet (200m).

The acquisition means that MB92 will merge Blohm+Voss La Ciotat with its Compositeworks SAS operation. All employees will be integrated into the new structure. The existing onsite offices and facilities at Blohm+Voss La Ciotat will remain in full operation under the management of the newly formed organization, according to a company statement, with the Blohm+Voss La Ciotat brand being phased out by the end of September.

MB92 stated that the company also is seeking designation from La Ciotat Shipyards as the primary user of the 4,000-ton platform expected to be delivered by 2021.
