DRY-DOCKING AND HAUL OUT

With over one hundred interventions each year, the lifting and chocking of your yacht is not taken lightly! There is a large range of facilities at all of our locations which you can view in detail here.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Members of our 30 strong, international project management team are dedicated to successfully delivering your project and always show huge commitment to meeting client expectations. Since the end of 2016, all projects are run through a secure online portal that is accessible to clients via an app or though the web. This tool enables all of the stakeholders in the refit project to share information such as work lists, quality control, planning, photos, drawings and even technical reports thus ensuring an optimum level of communication and delivery turnaround.

TECHNICAL SERVICES

Our technical office provides naval architecture & engineering expertise to clients at every stage of the project. From Interior and exterior design & styling, structural modifications, stability and weight studies, 3D scanning & modelling to surveys and technical reports.

PROJECT SUPPORT AND ADMINISTRATION

We ensure that any project, whatever its size, runs as smoothly and as safely as possible. Clients as well as CW teams and subcontractors are expected to follow our strict HSE guidelines.

We provide assistance with various admin tasks such as customs and importations, insurance and risk avoidance admin.

Clients’ needs during a refit always exceed that of the main works so storage and upkeep of tenders and toys is provided as well as recycling units, office space and more.

CONCIERGE SERVICES

Because we understand that a happy crew is an efficient crew, our concierge service assists the crew with just about anything including admin tasks such as visas and off-site housing when necessary. Find out more about our crew concierge services here.

SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT

Having worked on some of the largest and most complex yachts in the world, we understand the intricacies of your hardware. We have strong working relationships with the leading suppliers in the world and will always supply a suitable solution for your yacht, whether from working with the OEM or helping you source an alterative, more cost-effective option.

COMPOSITE

As our name suggests, we have a history of doing composite works! Although this is no longer our sole area of focus, we still run a state-of-the-art workshop where we work essentially on component manufacturing and repairs.

PAINT

We paint over 15,000 M2 per year. With a brand new paint cabin planned over the 176-metre dry dock in la Rochelle next year and a 50-metre paint cabin in La Ciotat, we are perfectly equipped and have an extensive portfolio of renowned contractors to handle any refinishing projects. Our aim is always to exceed our clients’ expectations, especially when it comes to luxury finishes.

INTERIORS

Successful interior refurbishment requires extreme attention to detail. Although our locations benefit from great local talent, we can source specialist trades from further afield.

METALWORKS

Working on complex modifications & repairs such as extensions involving the overall structure of yachts makes metal works an important part of most of our projects, which is why we only work with certified professionals.

CARPENTRY

Beautiful carpentry has a resounding effect on the overall look and feel of any yacht. Whether it be teak decking or interior joinery, we select the finest specialist craftsmen for each task.

SAILING SPECIFIC

Lifting keels, canting, rigging, masts… when it comes to sailing yachts, we have a particular passion and this is something that all of our clients in this specialist sector recognise.
