our history

Founded in 1998 in Marseille, Nautech is one of the oldest shipyards in France, dedicated to the refit and repair of luxury yachts and superyachts.

The foundations of Nautech in Marseille were laid in 1998 when the opportunity was taken to create a refit and repair Shipyard at a location of strategic and commercial importance. Marseille has the most westerly drydocks in the South of France and is a genuine centre of maritime maintenance operations. Over the years, Nautech has continued to expand.

Nautech has developed a loyal superyacht clientele who are looking for convenient and flexible shipyard services in the South of France and the Caribbean.

From seasonal maintenance work to full yacht refits for vessels from 25m to 140m+.


The capacity of the facilities at each location lead to two distinct operational centres :

Megayachts at La Ciotat, Cuba and La Martinique.
Superyachts at La Ciotat, Antibes and La Martinique.

Maintenance, repair and refit are carried out in traditional dry-docks, dry platform and wet-berth in our shipyard facilities.

An important part of the Nautech ethos is flexibility: We can fulfill client requirements at each location from routine seasonal maintenance through to full refit.

Nautech also prides itself in a proven track record that includes the organization and execution of urgent repairs. We have developed a Support Life Cycle Service for superyachts.

The project was perfectly monitored by Nautech, from the arrival to the departure of the vessel, by providing us with a dedicated project manager who was 100% involved with Queen Aida.
