Posted by Michelle Howard

UK ship repairer and marine engineering services provider the SMS Group has partnered with the Hythe Shipyard to provide a dedicated shipyard solution to customers within the Solent and Southampton Water.

SMS, which specializes in ship repair, marine engineering and major fabrication projects in the Commercial Marine, Defense and Superyachts sectors, also operates, in-house, a diving and sub-surface marine engineering division.

The Hythe Shipyard is located just South of Marchwood at the top of Southampton Water. The facility, owned by Fairline, allows vessels up to 950T (with a 55m LOA and 11.5m beam) to be slipped and hauled ashore. The site also offers moorings for vessels from 10m to 100m LOA. There is 10,000 sqm of undercover space and 24/7 onsite security.

The yard is an 'open' facility ensuring that SMS can bring its full suite of trades to site, including, but not limited to, structural and mechanical repair teams, electrical and hydraulic engineers, painting and coatings experts and interior and exterior outfitters.

With both parties committed to the agreement, the Hythe Shipyard is now open for ship repair works and refits both shoreside and alongside.
