Palumbo expands refit facilities with new floating dry dock
Palumbo Superyachts Refit has expanded its facilities in Marseille with a brand new 500-tonne floating dry dock.
The new addition comes as part of a period of significant investment and expansion for Palumbo that will enable the shipyard to carry out an increased scope of refit projects. The yard is now capable of carrying out a variety of different work, from repainting to mechanical work, in a covered environment well protected from the elements.
The floating dry dock can host yachts up to 45 metres in length with a maximum draft of 4.5 metres. It's also equipped with air systems for extraction, ventilation and heating, building on Palumbo Superyachts Marseille's existing services.
Located along the Cote d'Azur, Palumbo Superyachts Marseille is perfectly positioned for yachts based in the Mediterranean thinking of undergoing a winter refit or maintenance period ahead of the 2021 summer season. The refit yard also houses four dry docks, a 95 metre watershed and a 300-metre pier measuring for work that must be carried out while the yacht is afloat.
Palumbo Superyachts Marseille is part of Palumbo Superyachts Refit, the largest refit and repair network in the Mediterranean. The network consists of five yards strategically located throughout the Mediterranean in Marseille, Savona, Ancona, Naples and Malta.
