Temporary protections for superyacht’s maintenance are much more than essential. The benefits of performing them in a professional and fast manner, adapted to the refit needs in order to comply with the working calendar on board, goes beyond to a justified economical saving cost. In long-term, even in short refits or repairs, depending on the size of the yacht, there can be contractors at the same time, in different areas, some times more than 100 different contractors on board. Protecting access to the working zones, that contain exclusive and fragile items is a must.
Nautiel’s team has serviced in this area for the past 30 years, working with hundreds of superyachts in Barcelona MB92, Mallorca, Tarragona, Valencia, or Galicia, collaborating with the most important shipyards and refit areas in the Mediterranean. Its specialized team makes protections adapting the best materials to the specific features of the works to be carried out, in a quick, flexible and safe way.
