Many luxury yacht owners prefer the Mediterranean Sea near the French south coast during the summer and move to the warmth of the Caribbean during the winter. These yachts are increasingly equipped with Imtech technology, which makes it important to have local service points. Organized from the Rotterdam head office, service stations in Côté d’azur (Imtech Marine & Offshore) and, various offices in The Caribbean and Florida area, operated by Imtech subsidiary Tess Electrical Marine and sister company Radio Holland, are in close cooperation in order to provide quick and efficient services whenever the owner needs it.
