Princess Yachts Barcelona and Varador 2000 have signed a partnership agreement by which the repair and refit base in Arenys de Mar (Barcelona) will become the official technical service in Catalonia for the prestigious Plymouth-based yacht manufacturers. “Varador 2000 provides us with the post-sale quality and service we need for our customers”, said Àlex Colomer, head of Princess Yachts in Catalonia, Valencia, Galicia and the Basque Country.

Varador 2000 is one of the most renowned shipyards on the Catalan coast. With over thirty years in the business, it is now a benchmark for repair and refit of sailing and motor boats.

Varador 2000 is also delighted with the agreement with Princess Yachts Barcelona, as “providing official technical service throughout the Barcelona and Catalonia area for such an eminent brand will further strengthen our position as a leading shipyard in the 20 to 60 metre range of vessels”, said Raül Donaire, technical director at Varador 2000.
