MB92 La Ciotat launch “300t Origins”
MB92 La Ciotat announced today the creation of a dedicated refit facility serviced by the 300t travel lift within the MB92 La Ciotat shipyard, “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, 4 of which with keel pits, for vessels between 30 and 50 metres in length as well as a state-of-the-art 50m paint cabin.
