Year-round support in Palma can now be provided by Marine Results International
MARINE RESULTS INTERNATIONAL LTD
Marine Results International SL, based in Palma, Mallorca has increased its shop floor space with the addition of a double storey workshop.
The additional space has been acquired following the first successful year of the superyacht rigging company’s extension of its UK operation to include the new base in Mallorca. The new workshop complements the custom-built container that Marine Results has operated from at STP Shipyard for the past 12 months.
“We’ve always been aware of Palma as the heart of Mediterranean yachting, and whilst we have worked on large yacht projects there every winter since the company was formed, we were spending an increasing amount of our time there,” said Marine Results International head Ed Danby. “We therefore decided the time had come to provide year-round support rather than just seasonal support.”
The new facility will house splicing and storage facilities as well as a component servicing area.
A dye-penetrant line, for non-destructive testing of mast and yacht structures and appendages, has also been installed which will be operated by Marine Results International’s partner company International NDT.
Marine Results International was founded in 2003 and is headed by Ed Danby and Jon Morris. In addition to rigging work the company has evolved advanced non-destructive testing techniques now used on superyachts.
In 2019, the directors set up International NDT headed by Giles Waterhouse.
Marine Results International continues to operate from the UK and the three companies together share mobile workshops in Carrara, Italy and La Ciotat France.
