Grand Bahama Shipyard has engaged L&R Midland (UK) to exclusively represent the yard in the UK. This comes during what is expected to be an increasingly busy period due to the rapidly approaching new IMO regulations for ballast water treatment systems and exhaust gas cleaning systems.

The yard’s strategic location, 93 nautical miles east of Miami, is in close vicinity to the Gulf of Mexico and Panama Canal, and situated along major shipping lanes. The fine weather conditions facilitate year-round docking, repair, upgrade and conversion of vessels from the cruise, commercial and offshore segments.

Facilities include three floating drydocks capable of docking vessels up to 82,500 tonnes and more than 300 metres in length, significant berth and quayside facilities, including thruster pits, crane capacity up to 300 tonnes and extensive capability for hull, machinery, electrical and carpentry work, including many on-site specialist subcontractors such as ABB, Rolls-Royce and Wärtsilä.

UK enquiries for ship repair, upgrade or conversion can be directed to Jon Holloway at L&R Midland via phone or email, +44 (0) 77 1214 8881 / This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
