LARGE YACHT SERVICE & REFIT SHIPYARD IN THE MED

WINNER OF THE BOAT INTERNATIONAL WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS 2008 FOR BEST REFITTED YACHT

Astilleros de Palma was established in 1942, and pioneered the construction of steel vessels on the Island. The yard was originally located in La Pedrera, now in the centre of the Paseo Maritimo, and moved during the 60s to its present location and adopted its current name, Astilleros de Mallorca.

Since its foundation the yard has been responsible for the construction of all types of vessels including trawlers, container ships, refrigerated cargo vessels, petrol carriers, salvage vessels, anti-pollution vessels, fire fighting tugs and ultimately liquefied gas carriers. At the beginning of the 40s pleasure boats were being constructed at the shipyard. In those days, when the shipyard was near to Porto Pi, a small turning bridge had to be opened for every boat that had to dock or be launched. This often interrupted the traffic that had just started to travel along what is now one of Palma's busiest roads.

The first boats to be constructed in steel were for the Naviera Mallorquina fleet that ferried between the Balearic Islands and the mainland. At the end of the 70s a large 41m motor yacht was soon followed by the first three mast schooner to be constructed in the world since the 20s. The construction of merchant ships reached its peak in 1986 with building of a 113m LPG Carrier. It was, and still is, the biggest boat to have been built in the shipyard and at the time a technological challenge. Once delivered, the yard started it's evolution towards the pleasure yacht market.

The yacht Aldonza, delivered in 1995, was the last yacht to be constructed at the yard and marked a turning point with the conversion of Astilleros from building vessels to dedicating its resources to the refit and repair of yachts, a function that it quickly built an international reputation for. The renovation process of the yard towards the refit and repair of yachts begun in the early 90s and as the yard geared up to work exclusively within this market the most important objective was to create a centre that would house all of the skills required when repairing a yacht. To achieve this, new workshops for carpenters, electricians, riggers, upholsterers and painters were built. Also around Palma itself there are many service companies that have made the island there home and specialise in the maintenance of todays technologically advanced yachts. When required we are happy for these companies to work within our facilities. Over recent years many of the worlds best superyachts, sail and power, have used our facilities.

The yards development was honoured in 2008 with the Boat International, World Superyacht award: Best Refit, for the works done on MY Blue Bird between 2004 and 2007.
