Heinen & Hopman in the Netherlands has appointed a new full-time service mechanic to its dedicated subsidiary on the Côte d'Azur, Heinen & Hopman France. Highly experienced in the maintenance and repair of superyacht heating, refrigeration and air conditioning systems, Reinder van de Rijk will be on hand to assist yards, owners and captains. The move reflects the increasing demand for on-site service in this area of Mediterranean.
