Published: Monday, 14 April 2014
Pride Mega Yachts, China’s leading builder of super yachts, has invested RMB20 million in a new super yacht construction building to enhance its build capacity and quality. The new 4,800 square metre facility provides support for Pride’s current construction of the 88.8 metre super yacht Illusion by offering a range of new workshops, stores and offices. Pride’s new facility includes new workshops for electrical, carpentry, paint, and stainless steel work and storage areas.
Offices for design, project management, and owner’s team are located on the top floor and have a spectacular view and direct access to the super yacht under construction, which is actually being built inside the building.
“The new RMB20 million investment provides a boost to increase both capacity and efficiency of our super yacht building activities,” said Itay Simhony, a Director of Pride. “This gives our regular workforce a much better and fully climate-controlled environment to work in. It also helps us with the training of new staff. Most importantly the new state-of-the-art facility will make it possible for us to deliver great quality to our customers” The Illusion project team is continuously reinforced by additional specialists, currently led by 19 experienced yacht expatriates.
Pride Mega Yachts has slightly amended its brand name from Pryde Yachts launched at the Monaco Yacht Show 2013, to focus more on its mega yacht building activities.
