Burgess Marine is fully operational at STP in Palma, Spain.

STP, which stands for Servicios Tecnicos Portuarios, has an open yard policy and a 700-ton Travelift.

The yard allows captains, owners and agents to have independence when appointing project managers to subcontractors, according to the company.

The next available hard standing slots are not until February, and the yard is taking bookings for 2017 refits.

Burgess Marine has more than 30 years of ship repair experience, supporting both mechanical and structural repairs and refits to the commercial marine market, the defense sector and the superyacht industry in the United Kingdom and internationally.
