Colonna Yachts, a division of Colonna's Shipyard Inc. of Norfolk, Va., announced an expansion with the opening of the new West Yard Marine Travelift facility.

Situated on approximately 10 acres, this new facility will accommodate the simultaneous repair of up to 15 megayachts and deep-draft sailing yachts.

The Marine Travelift acquisition was partially enabled by a grant from the Maritime Administration Assistance to Small Shipyards Program.

The West Yard Marine Travelift facility equips Colonna Yachts to respond immediately to vessel repairs on an emergency basis. It also allows longer-term projects, such as repowers, hull and superstructure extensions and full refits, to remain efficiently dry-docked.
