Performance Yacht Painting (PYP), a leading specialist in superyacht paintwork has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Hydrasud activities at la Ciotat in the South of France. Founded over ten years ago within the La Ciotat shipyards, Hydrasud was one of the first sub-contractors to establish its business in the area following the reconversion of the Normed shipyard.

The new site features a sand blasting shed as well as an atmospherically controlled paint shed with temperature and humidity regulation.

This acquisition complements PYP’s pre-existing business on the la Ciotat site where the company has already undertaken a large number of paint refits on prestigious yachts such as MY Oxygène (42m), MY Raasta (47m), MY Rising Sun (138m), MY Sky (50m), Addiction (52m) and Mary Jean II (62m).

Gilles Delpy, managing director of PYP, comments “Our deployment into Europe’s largest refit and maintenance yard is evidence of our ambition and our determination to accompany our clients when and where they need us most and to fully undertake our mission of providing the exceptional quality of finishes that our clients demand.”
