MB92 La Ciotat, a leading French superyacht refit shipyard, has announced the appointment of Joe Degabriele as senior business development manager, whose main area of focus will be the commercial development of the new 4,300t shiplift, due for delivery in September 2022.

Joe Degabriele

With over 30 years’ experience, Degabriele is no stranger to MB92 as he was previously director of projects at the shipyard in La Ciotat from 2014 to 2019. During his career, he has held a number of senior management positions at superyacht refit facilities in the US, France, Italy and Malta.

Vincent Escallier, commercial director of MB92 La Ciotat, commented, “The launch of the new shiplift and its six additional spaces represents a major event for the group and our local community and is an exciting commercial challenge. I have much faith in Joe who is a great addition to our growing team and a highly regarded professional in our industry. He brings extensive refit experience to the company and will be an added value to our existing and future clients.”

Degabriele added, “I have witnessed first-hand the growth of MB92 La Ciotat, who have gone from strength to strength, and am delighted to be back for what promises to be a momentous year for the company. The new shiplift is an important investment in the future and will be an excellent facility for clients who are looking for the kind of security and peace of mind that can only come from working with an experienced and customer-focused shipyard.”
