MB92 Celebrates 25 Years of World Class Superyacht Refit
The Barcelona refit shipyard MB92, one of the world’s largest refit, repair and maintenance facilities for luxury yachts is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The shipyard started activity in 1992 with the vision to provide excellence in yacht refit, repair and maintenance and quickly elevated its offer to cater to the growing global superyacht fleet. Today, MB92 leads the ranking for shipyards dedicated exclusively to superyachts.
“At MB92 we are driven by a deep commitment to delivering excellence in quality and efficiency of services,” said MB92 CEO Pepe García-Aubert. “We have continually invested in our shipyard and in our people to meet the ever more demanding needs of the industry. We are very proud to be celebrating 25 years’ service to the sector, and we want to share our appreciation for the trust placed in us by our subcontractors and all of our clients for choosing Barcelona for their refit works.”
The future for the superyacht refit market is bright, which is why we are investing in a new 4,000 ton Shiplift that will permit the dry-docking of vessels up to 105 meters in length. This increased capacity will enable us to continue servicing the world’s finest superyachts”
Since its launch, MB92 has developed a network of world class subcontractors to ensure clients are surrounded by the very best specialists in the industry. New investment in facilities and equipment has further cemented the shipyard’s standing as one of the best of its kind in the world. MB92’s concessional area within the Port of Barcelona (which was renewed for another 30 years in 2010) has grown since 1992 from 25,200m2 to 124,000m2 today.
“The future for the superyacht refit market is bright, which is why we are investing in a new 4,000 ton Shiplift that will permit the dry-docking of vessels up to 105 meters in length. This increased capacity will enable us to continue servicing the world’s finest superyachts,” said Aykut Ozgulsun, Deputy CEO.
In its 25th year, MB92 continues to grow. In recent years, MB92 has refitted around 100 yachts each year with an average length of 70 meters. With both demand for refit services and the size of yachts increasing, MB92 is building for the future with the new Shiplift and hard-standing area that will have capacity for up to 12 vessels at a time.
