Titan Marine is a yard on a mission. The New Zealand-based company is now a closed yard, project managing all work on its own slipway and repair berth in central-Auckland. The company’s highly-regarded team includes aluminium welders holding class approval under Lloyds, Germanichser Lloyd and ABS classiﬁcations, among the other specialist marine engineers. And the mission? To provide top quality, 24 hour, seven day a week service to its international and domestic clients.
The Lloyds and GL-approved yard is equipped to provide the full spectrum of marinebased services; something which has been gratefully received by the superyacht clients who have moved to snap up a place in the queue for work. The experienced team is known for its ability to complete work to the industries high standard and meeting the expectations of clients.
Work is carried out on Titan’s dedicated slipway meaning maximum security and minimum interruptions to the work schedule and can tackle anything from engine overhauls to paint reﬁnishes and this work can be carried out with client conﬁdentiality. A 58-metre superyacht is currently on Titan’s 1500-tonne slipway. This is preceded by a broad range of white boats entrusted to Titan, A full portfolio of past work can be supplied on request.
Work within Titan’s comprehensive facilities can include steel, stainless steel and aluminium fabrication, painting and fairing, surveying, interior and exterior reﬁts, mechanical services and antifouling, with full project management onsite. The large class approved fabrication and machine workshops on site allow all work to be carried meters from the yacht. The Titan team changed the mode of slipway management to run as a “closed yard” operation in the New Year, primarily in order to provide greater quality control over the various subcontractors frequently employed within the yard.
”We believe the ability to work directly with the vessel allows transparency in time and cost for the client and gives our management team greater control in ensuring quality is maintained.” said Titan’s project manager, Anthony Bridge.
