GYG sign refit contract for 100m plus superyacht


GYG (Global Yachting Group) has firmed up its order book with the signing of a refit contract for a 100m plus superyacht. The France-based refit company announced the work is due to start in 2022 “further improving the forward visibility of the order book”.

Remy Millott, CEO of GYG, said: “I am pleased to have ended this calendar year with another substantial refit contract in Europe. Despite the wider challenges faced internationally throughout 2020, the superyacht industry remains robust and resilient and our sales team, headed up by our group commercial director, Rupert Savage, has worked hard to deliver numerous refit and new build contracts.

“Not only does this repeat business demonstrate our client’s satisfaction for the level of service we provide, including the efficient deployment of our unique turnkey solution, but also by signing contracts for work commencing in 2022 it highlights their confidence in the outlook for the industry and market. The advanced bookings strengthen our order book and provides further stability and visibility over forward revenues for the years ahead.”

GYG’s order book remains a record levels it revealed with eight new build projects for delivery in the next two years. The company said this is another “significant turnkey project”, utilising the refit services including scaffolding, containment, hardware removal, caulking and complete repainting.

The announcement follows the recent signing of a 115+ metre yacht contract in Germany which is due to complete in the first half of 2021.

GYG said: “This contract highlights our increasing average order value as a result of our market leading position in the premium 70m+ yacht market, as well as the turnkey range of global services we are able deploy at scale on vessels which are increasingly complex in nature.”
