Technohull reveals new €20m shipyard
Greek boatbuilder Technohull has opened a new shipyard and commercial headquarters in Lavrio, next to the builder’s existing lounge at Olympic Marine.
The 12,000 sqm site cost €20m to build, according to Technohull, and has the capacity to expand “immediately” to 16,000 sqm if required.
“Our new production facility represents one of the largest investments ever made in our sector in Greece and one of the largest internationally,” says Technohull CEO, Gerasimos Petratos.
The shipyard was completed in mid-2021 and attracted an honorary visit from Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in October.
The new “state-of-the-art” facility will handle all elements of the production process, from concept development, design and prototyping to final production, engineering and fitting out. Its proximity to the sea allows for easy testing and sea trials.
Some of the equipment at the new yard includes small-scale milling machines and a 20-metre long five-axis unit produced by Belotti Spa. Other high-tech installations include fully controlled spray booths, a post-curing oven and micro-finishing paint booths.
As Technohull’s new company headquarters, the shipyard is also home to the sales support and boat servicing departments.
“The new facility enables the company to further pursue its goals and establish a competitive presence in the global arena,” says Petratos. “This is the beginning of a new era for Technohull.”
