When it comes to superyacht refit services in the Mediterranean, one name stands out as a beacon of excellence and reliability: Palumbo.

Here for you Whenever and Wherever

Palumbo's extensive network of shipyards ensures that it is ready to assist superyachts wherever they may be in the Mediterranean. This commitment was recently underscored when a 50-meter Rossinavi on charter in St Tropez found itself with a hydraulic leak late on a Friday evening and in need of emergency assistance. Through Palumbo's newly launched 24/7 service, the shipyard was able to arrange a quote and repair the leak in the yard’s Marseille drydock facility, and in less than four working days, the yacht’s issues were resolved and it was back in St Tropez to continue its charter. This example underscores Palumbo's 24/7 service and its ability to transform crisis situations into seamlessly managed refit journeys.

The company's presence spans multiple key locations in the Med, including Marseille, Malta, Ancona, Naples, Savona, Messina and Rijeka. This broad reach ensures that no matter where a yacht requires refit services, Palumbo is at the ready. This unparalleled accessibility makes Palumbo a reliable partner, ready to meet the unique needs of each vessel and crew, whenever and wherever they may arise.

Your One-Stop Shop in the Med for All Marine Supplies

Palumbo's dedication to excellence doesn't stop at shipyards; it extends to chandlery services too. Following the huge success of its store in Malta and Marseille, Palumbo has significantly expanded its Marseille chandlery. By stocking spare parts, hardware, clothing and marine electronics from trusted names such as Awlgrip, GF Marine and 3M, the brand has positioned itself as the go-to source for all things marine-related right in the heart of the Mediterranean.

For those who are further afield and unable to reach the chandlery, Palumbo proudly has announced its user-friendly e-commerce will now serve the entire Mediterranean, ensuring its top-quality components from renowned brands are readily available to superyacht engineers, deck crew and the wider marine industry, wherever they need it.

Not only does Palumbo show a dedication to the wellbeing of the yacht, but it also offers a range of amenities, ensuring crew are well looked after during their visit. After spending months on board in compact crew quarters, yacht crew can look forward to a comfortable stay during their refit project at Palumbo. All double rooms are equipped with a private bathroom, TV, Wi-Fi, mini fridge, air conditioning, storage facilities and daily cleaning. Additionally, with secretarial support services available across multiple locations as well as yacht concierge services, Palumbo understands that crew comfort is vital to a successful refit project.

What’s more, Palumbo's commitment to enhancing the crew experience goes beyond traditional offerings. An outdoor recreational area with a BBQ, electric bike services, a games room and a brand-new, fully equipped gym and spa further elevate the experience.
