Marina Barcelona ’92 commissions large shiplift

As part of the expansion plans set in place for the shipyard, MB’92 has commissioned an advanced shiplift to be installed late 2017. Capable of transferring mega yachts up to 105 metres in length, the lift will help ensure MB’92 maintains its position as the premier superyacht repair facility in Europe.

The company behind the design and construction of the new transfer lift is Miami-based Pearlson Shiplift. The lift has been designed to be extended to handle superyachts up to 120 metres following the initial installation phase. Douglas Pearlson had the following to say, ‘We are proud to be associated with this prestigious project and look forward to the successful introduction into service of this key element of the overall expansion project.’

Pepe García-Aubert, Managing Director of MB’92 said ‘We have found the original shiplift and transfer system installed at MB’92 in 1999 to be a cost effective and reliable docking and transfer solution which is ideally suited for the mega yacht market. It was the obvious solution for our expansion project and we are delighted to have the support and expertise of the team, which originally invented and developed the Syncrolift shiplift technology’.
