MB92 acquires Blohm+Voss La Ciotat

Refit yard Marina Barcelona 92 (MB92) is set to expand after acquiring French refit shipyard Blohm+Voss La Ciotat.

The French shipyard, which is currently the exclusive operator of the dry dock facilities in La Ciotat's shipyard facilities, will be merged with the MB92 owned Compositeworks SAS shipyard which is also based at La Ciotat.

All current employees will be integrated into the merged company while all offices and facilities on site, including the 200 metre dry dock, will remain in full operation under the new management.

MB92 will oversee the rebranding process of the Blohm+Voss La Ciotat brand which will be phased out by the end of September this year.

MB92, which is headquartered in Barcelona, said the acquisition strengthened its commitment to La Ciotat as a key Mediterranean hub. The yard also revealed it is bidding to be selected as the major user of the 4000 tonne platform due for delivery at La Ciotat in 2021.

In 2015, MB92 was responsible for the refit of 90 metre classic yacht Nero, one of the largest superyacht refits the yard has even undertaken.
