MB92 La Ciotat gains exclusive use of refit space


MB92 La Ciotat announced recently that it has been awarded a 35-year lease with La Ciotat Shipyards for exclusive use of more than 23,000 square meters on the 4,000-metric-ton platform to be delivered sometime around 2022.

Work will begin on the platform next year, include a state-of-the-art 4,000-metric ton ship lift and spaces on the hard for yachts up to 105m. MB92 La Ciotat has pledged a large investment in the ship lift, according to a press release.

“Docking facilities for yachts over 80 meters are a rare commodity in the Mediterranean, so we are very pleased to be able to offer additional options for this market segment,” stated Pepe García-Aubert, president and CEO of the MB92 Group.
