Superyacht refit specialist Other Angle Yachting has announced that Jean-Christophe Lenoir and his team of refit experts have returned to Marseille. The move follows three successful years at DCNS’s Toulon facilities. DCNS is a French industrial group specialised in naval defence and energy.

The decision was made to move the operations back to the Marseille location, in non-exclusive collaboration with Italian shipyard group Palumbo, which recently acquired the long-established superyacht refit yard formerly known as ITM.

Due to pre-existing contracts with the French military, DCNS is no longer able to guarantee availability for Other Angle’s superyacht clients, hence the company decided to relocate.

The Marseille facilities include 94m of covered shed, dry docks up to 125m and 300m of dockage space.

“We are proud to have worked with DCNS over the last few years. It has been a very illuminating experience, and we have learned a great deal from the team there on maintaining the highest standards of safety and security in our protocols and procedures,” comments Jean-Christophe. “The Palumbo ITM team and yard facilities are great, and we are pleased to be returning to Marseille”.

Jean-Christophe and the team are already open for business at the Marseille facilities, with Titania (Lürssen, 72.0m) and Slipstream (CMN, 60.0m) already at the refit yard.
