The International Council of Marine Industry Associations' Superyacht Refit Group today launched its first website.

The website aims to inform captains, owners, yacht managers and their representatives about the work performed at member yards and help users make an informed decision about which yard to use for their next refit.

All refit group members have to conform to a code of practice that brings certainty to refits and eases owners’ concern about how a yacht's refit will be managed and the quality that will be achieved.

The refit group yard members are Amico & Co., Astilleros de Mallorca, Compositeworks, International Technic Marine, Marina Barcelona 92, Monaco Marine, Pinmar and Rybovich.
