Monaco Marine has a new business working alongside it at its base at La Ciotat shipyard, and the two companies expect to cooperate extensively.

French officials inaugurated the 200 metre dry dock at La Ciotat following a €15.8 million upgrade and renovation project. After Peter Lürssen pressed the button to flood the basin, Jean-Yves Saussol, CEO of La Ciotat Shipyards said, “In Lürssen we trust!”

Mr Lürssen said that the new dry dock will be managed by the Barcelona superyacht refit firm MB92. “There should be two places in the Mediterranean for refit and repair of very large yachts,” Mr Lürssen proclaimed during his inaugural speech. “One should be La Ciotat, and one should be Barcelona. What better chance to combine the forces of La Ciotat and Barcelona together?”

Mr Lürssen continued by stating, “For over 20 years, we have trusted MB92 with the refit and warranty work of our vessels. When we faced the situation of how to develop La Ciotat, it was a natural step for us to talk to our partners at MB92 and to our new partners in this region.”

He added that every one of the major players understands that by helping each other, we improve this location. “If we work together, all of our businesses prosper.”

Monaco Marine and CompositeWorks both use the 2,000 Syncrolift installed in 2007. There are other big plans in the pipeline at La Ciotat, including a project to build 10,000 square metres of workshops, offices and warehouses for subcontractors at the shipyard. (Feature image: Rudolf Simon)
