Barcelona shipyard expands

Sep 5, 2018 by Triton Staff

Varador 2000 shipyard is expanding its repair and refit facilities in Arenys de Mar, Barcelona. With the extension of its technical esplanade, the shipyard will soon double its operational area, according to a company press release. The facility upgrades are intended to accommodate yachts up to 164 feet (50m).

Updates include the construction of a new paint unit for large boats, which is almost finished, and the incorporation of new boiler-making workshops, carpentry, electronics, electricity, lamination, composites and upholstery services.

The shipyard is also developing a new winter storage plan called QuaySide1835. This new service for large yachts will include six or more months of dry storage, transport, and technical and logistical support.

Mataró Marina Barcelona, the shipyard’s marina on the north coast of Barcelona, has 30 moorings for boats up to 197 feet (60m), with full facilities and a recreation area for captains and crew.

Varador 2000 will present details of its shipyard expansion at the Monaco Yacht Show, Sept. 26-29, at stand AL4 in the closed exhibition tent at Quai Albert Ier.
