Amico & Co has also completed the upgrade on three of its state-of the-art refit and paint sheds; with the air draft increased up to 22 mt, thus allowing it to accommodate yachts up to 60 mt.

The new and improved sheds are all equipped with centralised systems such as heating, overspray recovery, lighting, and additional necessary utilities such as antenna TV and black water.

These improvements allow hauling out, indoor transportation and the hull blocking of a 60mt LOA in just one working day upon yacht arrival at the shipyard.

In addition, Amico & Co has completed the design for its dry-dock shed upgrade. The new dry-dock shed will be increased in both in height and length, and will be capable of accommodating yachts up to 75 mt. Work will commence during summer 2012.
