Atollvic Shipyard in Vigo, Spain has formed a joint venture with New Zealand’s Integrated Marine Group (27 March 2012)

Superyacht refit yards form joint venture.
Atollvic Shipyard in Vigo, Spain, has formed a joint venture with New Zealand-based superyacht refit, service and repair specialist, Integrated Marine Group (IMG).
The new partnership will ensure that IMG clients travelling by sea to the northern hemisphere and requiring yacht refit, servicing and repair work while there, will be attended to in a shorter time frame than before.
They will be assisted either at the Atollvic shipyard in Spain or on location by a project manager from Atollvic.
Alberto Bola, project manager for Atollvic, says: “IMG can assure its customers that representatives of Atollvic will be able to respond to any situations within the Mediterranean or elsewhere within the northern hemisphere within 10 hours, as opposed to a potential wait of up to 48 hours for a project manager from IMG to travel from Auckland, New Zealand.
“We are of course delighted to also be able to offer Atollvic clients the same assurances while they are travelling in the south.”
Founded in 2006, Atollvic Shipyard specialises in custom sail and motor yachts in steel or aluminium. The company builds, refits and repairs yachts up to 70m (230ft).
IMG was founded in 2003 and provides refit, repair and maintenance, as well as yacht support. Assisting yachts based in New Zealand and across the South Pacific, the company employs a team of around 70 highly skilled engineers.
The two companies will both benefit from wider awareness within the global superyacht industry through strategic cross-promotional activities, reads a company press release. A further benefit of the cooperation is that they will be working together on new projects, details of which will be revealed throughout 2012. (, 27 March 2012)
