“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 our clients for choosing Barcelona for their refit works.” 

According to the refit yard, MB92 is continuing to see growth in what is its 25th year: It reports refitting around 100 yachts annually in recent years, with an average length of 70m.

The business is also building for the future, with development plans for a new shiplift and hard-standing area with capacity for 12 vessels at a time. 

Aykut Ozgulsun, depty CEO at MB92 said, “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 metres in length.
