Hainan’s largest yacht maintenance center under construction in Sanya
Sanya is speeding up construction on a yacht maintenance center, which is said to be the largest one in Hainan, and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.
A new yacht maintenance venture, Sanya Visun Tuscany Yaching Co., Ltd., between Italian collaborative Toscana Refit and Visun Royal Yacht Club is progressing well and will start offering repair and refit services for yachts up to 37 meters soon. The service center boasts 750 sqm of on-land area and 1,000 sqm of waterfront area.
The service center will have an Italian general manager with strong experience in the field and other Italian specialized technicians will be constantly visiting to keep the local team trained up to international standards and to provide assistance during particularly complex works.
Besides, the two companies have applied to local government to acquire a piece of land in the new development area of Yacheng Town. This site will be home to their second yacht service center, a 66,000-sqm shipyard dedicated to the repair and refit of yachts up to 80m.
The new service center will be fully put into operation by the end of 2015 and become a worldwide landmark for yacht servicing.
