First year in Palma marked by further rigging facility expansion

Marine Results International SL, based in Palma, Mallorca has just substantially increased its shop floor space with the addition of a double storey workshop in Palma.  The additional space has been acquired following the first successful year of the superyacht rigging company’s extension of its UK operation to include the new base in Palma, at the heart of the Mediterranean’s superyacht refit operations.  The new workshop complements the custom-built container that Marine Results has operated from at STP Shipyard for the past 12 months.

The new facility, on the outskirts of Palma city, will house splicing and storage facilities as well as a component servicing area.  A dye-penetrant line, for non-destructive testing of mast and yacht structures and appendages, has also been installed which will be operated by Marine Results International’s partner company International NDT. 

Marine Results International was founded in 2003 and is headed by Ed Danby and Jon Morris, who both have several decades of spar management experience.  In addition to their rigging work the company was instrumental in evolving the advanced non-destructive testing techniques that are now used on superyachts.  In 2019, the directors set up International NDT as a separate company headed by NDT specialist Giles Waterhouse. Marine Results International Ltd continues to operate from the UK and the three companies together share mobile workshops in Carrara, Italy and La Ciotat France.

Commenting on the expansion into Palma, Ed says: “We’ve always been aware of Palma as the heart of Mediterranean yachting, and whilst we have worked on large yacht projects there every winter since the company was formed, we were spending an increasing amount of our time there.  We therefore decided the time had come to provide year round support rather than just seasonal support.”

Marine Results International provides a range of services for yacht masts and rigging on a global basis.  The teams specialise in rigging technology, project management, non-destructive inspection, survey work and repair, with a strong focus ion hands-on expertise.
