After a fire in one of the production halls at the Sunreef Yachts shipyard in the evening on 19 January 2012, the company has already started rebuilding lost units. Some yachts under construction have been destroyed but the key moulds have been saved which together with the determination and increased commitment of all the workers will help minimise delays in the construction process.
The shipyard has already begun adapting another production hall and moved the moulds to the new site. The production will be recommenced on Monday, 23 January. Francis Lapp, President of Sunreef Yachts, assures that all their employees will have a lot of work within the next few days. “We will even need to increase our production capacity to rebuild the lost units and start works for the recently signed contracts”. The shipyard will maintain all their previous contracts. The delay in delivery due to this unfortunate force majeure will not exceed 3 months.
“After so many tokens of support from our Clients, yacht owners, suppliers and many other friends of the Sunreef Yachts shipyard, we are highly motivated to action”, ensures Francis Lapp.
The shipyard continues its development strategy and will exhibit as always at all major boat shows and organise its prestigious events as usual. New Sunreef Yachts models will be shown at the 2012 Cannes International Boat Show according to plan.
