Refits and Projects

Our Refit Services

Yacht Refits

Berthon Spain have been involved in a large amount of refits and projects over the years and we are therefore best placed to guide you on how to go about your particular goals.

From full teak replacementsre-sprays and system renewals it can be a daunting concept knowing how much to do and where to draw the line.

We have been entrusted with some great projects on all manner of size boats and with our excellent network of contractors and our own in-house staff we are able to take care of everything from start to finish.

Yearly Haul Outs

We haul the majority of our guardiennage boats out once a year and we are there to take care of it all; from booking the yard, to driving the boat to the yardantifouling and polishing and delivering back after to its berth when we are finished.

We will advise you on what works should be done to ensure a trouble free season and can give you a good idea of the costs involved.

At this time we will generally service all moving underwater parts, change the anodes and inspect shafts, propellers and thrusters.
