Amico & Co on course for shipyard developments

With an ever growing fleet of superyacht clients, leading refit and repair shipyard Amico & Co., will soon have expanded its facilities to cope with the growing demand and custom they are experiencing in the superyacht market.

With two state-of-the-art graving docks up to 200 metres, the shipyard can currently welcome the world's largest yachts. However, Amico & Co announced back in February 2014 that it is building its new sheltered graving dock to be equipped with heating, ventilation and emission treatment systems for painting works.

Work is estimated to be completed by September 2014, in time for any winter refits or repairs required for the yard.

The graving dock will have the following characteristics: 101m LOA, with a beam of 21m, an air draft of 31m, and a draught of 7.4m. It will be located alongside the Amico & Co facilities and workshops in Marina di Loano, Italy.

Mr. Amico, president & CEO of the company commented, "It will be a major investment, allowing us to offer a competitively priced service to yachts up to 100m and to move more towards the segment of the market that appreciates our reputation. Part of our strategy is to continue investing in new infrastructures to allow us to constantly improve our efficiency in the future."
