By working with passion, providing the best tools, staying state of the art, innovating for tomorrow and always keeping your satisfaction in mind, our team will give you the best support you need for her.
Following our more than 20 years of experience, we have created a regular maintenance check list that ensures a total check-up of your yacht.
Designed by the aeronautical sector, the check list is a very valuable tool. It will help you to determine the next steps regarding the maintenance of your yachts for future years.First of all, it gives us a complete technical x-ray of the yacht. We are able to give you a full report distinguishing regular, predictive or exceptional maintenance issues. Secondly, it will also allow you to forecast the maintenance plan within the life cycle of the yacht. Naturally, our team will advise you and be at your disposal to answer any questions you may have.
When it comes to painting your yacht, antifouling is perhaps one of the most dreaded taskes. The choice of antifouling paint as well as its application is important. Antifoulings have to do a tough job in many locations, so it makes sense to ensure they're applied in the best possible conditions. Good preparation and priming is essential to ensure that the antifouling adheres to the surface. In addition, that surface should ideally be as smooth as possible. The faster the boat the more important this aspect becomes. On any half-serious raceboat that means ensuring the hull is properly faired and abrading previous coats to prevent a build up of layers of paint.
Engine Service is one of the main issues regarding the use of a motor yacht. Our team organize the regular maintenance and service following the manufacturer’s schedule and according to the serial number of the engines. We work throughout the year with all naval engine manufacturers or with their representatives and technicians. We provide them with the logistic support and the perfect environment for them to perform their best work on your yacht.
The survey is a complete check-up of all the vital organs of the yacht, such as for example, the transmission and propulsion. Every spare part, like the rudder blade, shaft lines and propellers are dismantled and taken into our workshops. There they undergo an inspection to identify any weak spots. An initial visual inspection takes place before the technical tests are carried out by a certified operator to check if the equipment requires any serious repair or needs to be replaced. Every component of the yacht is checked during this survey, including for example, vanes (which have to be replaced after inspection), the state of the hull (the measure of thickness), corroded areas or points, the anchor and electric systems etc.
The deck also undergoes the same level of inspection. The report is then handed to a class registration for checking. Following this, a decision is made whether further investigation or replacement of spare parts is required to satisfy the register and gain the class certification.
A yacht paint is one of the most specific and precise work for a yacht. It requires the highest quality standards available on the market.

Having worked with between 100 to 130 superyachts (from 50m to +180) each year since 2007, we have acquired a strong and efficient expertise in leading a refit process.
Refit is probably one of the most complicated operations in a yacht’s lifetime. And we don’t start with a blank sheet.

Our main focus is to preserve your safety at sea and to increase your pleasure on board. Moreover our project management approach gives you the opportunity to become fully involved with the refit project and the opportunity to adapt your project according to the technical studies that we supply to you.

A refit period can sometimes exceed three months while your Superyacht and your crew stay in our shipyard. With the complexity of a refit project, we consider at Monaco Marine that one of the conditions of its success is also to have a crew in a good mood. That’s why Monaco Marine think about them and offers some facilities, like at home... Indeed, our shipyards have Crew Areas, to relax with a book in a nice cosy place or to enjoy some activities. These private areas are fully equipped with a pool, a football table, a tennis table, a TV and the WI-FI for those who are far from their family.
