MB92 La Ciotat launches 300t Origins

Offered By MB92 Group

MB92 La Ciotat has announced today the creation of a dedicated refit facility serviced by the 300t travel lift within the MB92 La Ciotat shipyard: the ‘300t Origins’.

As the name suggests, this facility is dedicated to maintaining and refitting yachts up to 300t and refers to the ‘origins’ of MB92 La Ciotat, who initially built much of its reputation by building and refitting sailing and power boats under 300t displacement. The facilities include 14 spaces on the hard, four of which with keel pits, for vessels between 30 and 50 metres (98 and 164 feet) in length as well as a state-of-the-art 50-metre paint cabin.

Ben Mennem, president of MB92 La Ciotat, said, “The 30-50m segment is our historic area of expertise and requires a different approach. In order to cater for this smaller, yet just as discerning size range, we decided to create a dedicated facility that is able to provide our clients with a ‘boutique’ experience to maintain and refit their yachts. As such, I am very happy to appoint one of our longest serving team members, Philippe Escousse, who is a seasoned skipper and a very experienced project manager, as manager of this new facility.”

Clients of 300t Origins will benefit from the best of both worlds: an agile organisational structure enabling a more flexible and tailored approach, while also benefitting from significant advantages of working with MB92, one of the world’s leading group of yacht refit shipyards – including its experienced and qualified teams, a significant network of high-quality subcontractors, world-class facilities, customer care, crew areas including a gym and an environmentally conscious approach.

Philippe Escousse, 300t Origins site manager, commented, “Many of us have worked on yachts or ships, some as captains, others as engineers or crew so we have a unique understanding of our client’s needs, what they want, and just as important what they don’t want. Our goal is to make the refit process as smooth and efficient as possible for our clients and the new agile organisation of 300t Origins will enable us to do just that.”
