Port Denia Announces Plans for Huge Expansion Project

By Heather Collier

Port Denia, the superyacht shipyard based in Denia, Spain, is pleased to announce they are planning a huge expansion project for later this year.

Port Denia currently has two 80 metre slipways, capable of hauling out vessels of up to 1250 GT in weight and with a beam of up to 15 metres width.

The shipyard also boasts 2000 square metres of indoor workshops, including specialist work areas for metal work, carpentry, electrics, electronics, engineering, interior design, rigging and painting projects.

In addition to their 1250 tonne capacity haulout designed for 65-metre vessels, Port Denia has selected ASCOM/EQUIPORT for the supply of their new, advanced Boat Hoist model BHT 620, with a load capacity of 620 metric ton.

The travel lift will generally lift yachts up to 45 to 50-metres, depending on each vessel's volume. The yacht will then be placed on a flat surface for work, which is highly important for not only the work itself, but also for crew staying aboard during the refit process, instead of being worked upon from the slipway.

Aside from the increased lifting capacity, this machine is specifically designed to move and launch superyachts effortlessly.

As a result, the shipyard is opening up to a huge sector of middle sized yachts, with the Travel Lift expected to be delivered to Varadero Port Denia by July 2023.
