Astilleros de Mallorca
Refit and Repair Shipyard
Astilleros de Mallorca is a refit and repair shipyard for luxury sailing and motor yachts. First of all 1942 saw STP pioneer the construction of a great variety of vessels. Since then, in the early 90´s the island became the centre for Superyachts that run both Caribbean and Mediterranean seasons. Astilleros de Mallorca adapted to the requirements of the up and coming market. As a result Astilleros de Mallorca is Mallorca’s Premier Shipyard.
It is especially relevant that the yards workforce conserves the old artisan´s tradition. While it also constantly keeps an eye on the future.
Metal has always been one of the basic ingredients in the shipyard’s history. Our craftsmen have preserved the heritage of old traditions. Yet they have also developed these techniques to forge authentic and unique custom made masterpieces.
Steel and Aluminium Welding
Our team of welders are equally conversant with all types of welding. Producing high grade finishes in every case meeting with ISO specifications.
Custom Design and Fabrication
Astilleros de Mallorca is one of the leading designers and manufacturers of marine deck equipment. This includes awnings, staircases, railings, stanchions, vessel access systems as well as swim platforms.
Pipework and Plumbing
Any kind of piping onboard is a serious challenge for both designers and manufacturers alike. We design and fabricate all manner of pipes in steel, stainless steel, aluminium and cupronickel. Using the best materials for the vessel, thus avoiding any of the pitfalls generally associated with pipework.
The love of this craft was born in the very heart of the shipyard. Our skilled craftsmen have a special sense for such a unique and natural material. They are well versed in the widest range of materials, methods and technologies, be it teak, veneers, marquetry or composites; from new build to classic yacht restoration.
The design and manufacture of exterior woodwork on a yacht is of the utmost importance, consequently our approach to all ondeck carpentry has it’s art firmly ingrained in our historic background. Besides the vast number of deck replacement projects undertaken by our specialised decking team, our carpenters take great pride in the restoration of antique boats and the repair and refurbishing of modern classics.
The works of building new masts and spars for Hispania, Blue-Bird, Dirdam, Giradilla and other mast repairs, made it necessary to build a mast shed for our shipwrights.
Electrical Works Installation
Innovation in any industry must be followed closely to achieve a correct balance of invention and economy. We are mindful of the gamut of fast developing techniques and materials in the yachting industry and combine both the old and the new in perfect technical harmony.
Electrical Works – Diagnosis
A modern yacht’s advanced electrical systems are notoriously difficult to fault find. Our electrical engineers have microprocessor-based diagnostic tools and techniques at hand to correctly and safely diagnose and sometimes even predict, difficult situations.
Electrical Works – Repair
Naturally not everything is about throwing out the old and bringing in the new, so our repair service is equally important. Wherever possible our electricians will firstly attempt a repair on any system before advising a new installation. Not only does this make economic sense but also maintains a certain aesthetic in more classic yachts.
Here at Astilleros de Mallorca we have a number of ways to treat a vessel’s surface, whether it be metal or wood. Initial cleaning of a yacht’s hull for instance can take place on the slipway with a high pressure water washer and further Hydro Blasted if necessary.
The adoption of specific production processes and innovative solutions give us a significant industrial and technological advantage when applying the final touches to your treasured possession.
Painting and Varnishing
The final finish on any yacht is the pride of every owner, consequently we provide every possible amenity to ensure a fault free finish on hulls, superstructures and rigging.
Over the years our design team have worked in conjunction with a number of design firms producing pre-fabricated interiors for shipping to our yard and fitting thereby saving time and money. This process allows our contractors to put into place the many service lines and equipment prior to to the arrival of the interior sections.
Equally the exterior design process follows a similar path, with the notable exception of utilising our artisans to provide super structures aided by our own capable design team.
Astilleros de Mallorca stands ready to meet all mechanical repair and conversion requirements of the marine industry.
All shaft line repairs and inspections are carried out by our mechanical engineering department. Propeller repairs, pitch measurement and balancing of variable and fixed pitch propellers. Clearance measurements of shaft lines, rudders, line boring of stern tubes, shaft brackets and rudder tubes.
Zero speed stabilisers are the most effective way of stabilising your vessel.
Astilleros de Mallorca have now successfully retro fitted more than 10 of these systems over the past few years,
Pumps and Deck Machinery
Fixed fire extinguishing systems installations, water (low pressure or mist) and gas types, sewage treatment systems, bilge water separators and fuel purifiers are all repaired, maintained or installed by us as well as bow and stern thrusters. We have expertise in all centrifuge pumps, screw pumps, piston pumps. In addition to the overhaul and repair our test bench, will ensure the pump is delivering the correct pressure and flow required.
Some of the most demanding applications on a marine vessels are carried out through some sort of piping. Be it hydraulics, sea water, fuel or fresh water. The pressures and possibility of corrosion involved are enormous so the right materials for the job are imperative.
Modern yachts have increasingly complex and demanding hydraulic applications which need to be inspected and maintained. Our experienced hydraulic engineers can pressure test all hydraulic hoses and conduct sample testing they will remove old hoses replacing existing hard pipe work and flexible hoses as necessary, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency. We supply hoses with extra abrasion resistance covers that are resistant to UV which protect hoses further.
In addition to high pressure hydraulic applications, plumbing installations in copper, polypropylene, PVC, stainless steel are all carried out by our specialist fitters, as well as all plastic types as PVC, PE, PP using electrofusion, gluing or press techniques.
The shipyard has a designated area for the dismantling and storage of masts. This also serves as an area to carry out all manner of rig inspection and repair, from ultra sound or x-ray to rewiring, painting and varnishing. The in house rigging contractors are available to carry out all types of work, including the stepping and un-stepping of almost any size of rig.
Stepping and Un-stepping
Protecting one of the most expensive and vital parts of any sailboat needs a special touch, so any rig movement is carried out using two cranes to avoid any unnecessary stress.
Rewiring, Painting and Repair
Temporary paint sheds are set up in the yard to repaint and finish any rigging. Supported by a sanding and filling area with work benches, compressed air supply and extraction these sheds are invaluable in completing work on time and in an environmentally sound area.
Inspection and Cleaning of Air Conditioning
Inspection, maintenance and cleaning of air conditioning and extraction ductwork and filters are essential to ensure a safe and healthy environment. System life and fire prevention are greatly enhanced by regular checks of all onboard air conditioning units. Sterilization and decontamination of ventilation ducting are imperative, especially when travelling in hot humid locations, regular thermostat checks ensure the comfort of your guests. We arrange all types of filter cleaning and exchange too.
