The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has announced that Lusben has joined its Superyacht Refit Group.

Established in 1956 in Viareggio, Lusben has refitted more than a thousand yachts and today operates yards in Viareggio and Livorno. The company has a combined capacity to handle yachts from 20m to 140m.

In addition to the Viareggio and Livorno facilities, Lusben has office points in Marina Genova and Monaco.

ICOMIA reports that the 2,500-tonne ship lift available at Lusben’s Livorno site is unique in the yachting industry and is the only lift in Europe with such a capacity. The site also boasts a 110m floating dock.

Lusben also offers a dry dock of 180m and its specialist paint shed in Viareggio can be pressurised, ventilated and heated up to 70 degrees.

The ICOMIA Superyacht Refit Group represents refit, repair and maintenance yards. Company members conform to a unique Code of Practice, which brings certainty to refit and eases the owner’s concerns on how their yacht’s refit will be managed and the quality that will be achieved.

In addition, Refit Group members offer their clients a standard framework contract developed by international marine lawyers.
