Britain’s largest independent ship repairer and marine engineering services provider, Burgess Marine, has this month launched the 57m Swiftship M/Y Tacanuya which opens up capacity for another major Superyacht refit this winter, the company said.

After a lengthy refit, M/Y Tacanuya has now been delivered to the owner’s team and is en-route to the Mediterranean. This follows recently completed works, in the UK, on both M/Y Force India and M/Y Lady A.

Lord Sugar, the Owner of M/Y Lady A, said: “Refitting Lady A at home in the UK was a real, genuine, pleasure. The team at Burgess Marine know their stuff and the quality of the end product is simply outstanding. Owners that have made their money in the UK should definitely consider spending it in the UK with the likes of Burgess Marine; British engineering and workmanship is something to be really very proud of – on the South Coast there’s the ‘know how’ and passion to make the most challenging refit a reality”.

Nicholas Warren, the CEO of Burgess Marine said: “Our facility in Portchester is perfect for a winter refit.  The devalued pound coupled with our exceptional British craftsmanship really does make our refit solution both great value for money and well worth further consideration.”

“To see what can be done, you’ve only got to look at M/Y Lady A, exhibiting at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show with Edmiston; she’s a superb example of what can be achieved by bringing your Superyacht to the UK for a major refit” added Warren.

Burgess Marine’s Portchester facility is adjacent to a 60m 1000T Rolls Royce syncrolift facility and is situated at the top of Portsmouth Harbour.

The Burgess Marine team are attending the Monaco Yacht Show and M/Y Lady A can be viewed at the show via Edmiston.
