New shiplift at MB92 open

ADVERTISEMENT

MB92 Barcelona has announced that its new 4,800-ton shiplift is open for business, with the first haul outs successfully completed in August. 

Located in the heart of the port of Barcelona, the shiplift platform and transfer system can haul out and maneuver up to nine superyachts under 377 feet (115m) onto 30,000 square meters of hard-standing area, according to a company press release. The area also contains a keel pit – 14.5m in length by 5m wide and 8m deep – to facilitate daggerboard works for sailing superyachts.

MB92 technical management worked with Barcelona Port Authorities and civil engineering companies including Pearlson Shiplift Corp. and Enginyeria Reventós on the addition, for which construction began in summer 2015 with the dismantling of the paint shed.

“This new development opens up a much wider range of options and flexibility for our clients during the traditionally busier periods of the year, when scheduling dry dock work can prove complicated,” stated Henk Dreijer, chief business development officer at MB92. “With several projects currently in consideration, we look forward to turning more client visions into reality.”

MB92 Barcelona provides service, refit, repair and maintenance each year to more than 100 superyachts from 115 feet (35m) to 656 feet (200m). The shipyard is part of the MB92 Group, along with MB92 La Ciotat.
