Following the winding up of Rodriguez Group-SNP Holding and its subsidiary SNP Boat Service on July 22, the Commercial Court of Cannes has accepted bids for the two subsidiaries that were not affected by the liquidation.

Brokerage firm Camper & Nicholsons International, still reeling from a tax adjustment of €17m, has been taken on by Swiss group Colosseum Services for €1m.

SAS Gérard Rodriguez, the shipyard located in Golfe Juan, France, was sold for €2m to Claus Johansen, owner of French refit yard Chantier Naval de l’Esterel in Sainte-Marguerite, Cannes.

The sale was made in partnership with Industrial and Marine Diesels (IMD), a Dutch importer of the Onan and Cummins brands for Northern Europe.

“The purchase of the G Rodriguez yard allows us to grow from 4,000sq m to 12,000sq m of careening area, and to propose additional slipways and travelifts for our refits,” Johansen told SB.
