The shipyard is currently building a new floating shed next to its maintenance hall, so it will be able to work on more projects, as well as larger projects.Photo: Van Geest DesignThe new floating shed is set to offer an increased capacity of nearly 100%, measuring 130-metres long and 30 metres wide, with 28 metres of mast clearance, according to Icon Yachts.
