·Nautipaints and Varador 2000 announce a new industrial collaboration
Nautipaints and Varador 2000 have signed an industrial collaboration agreement whereby the prestigious Mallorcan company specialized in painting superyachts establishes a new technical base at the Varador 2000 shipyard (Arenys de Mar / Barcelona). The agreement has been signed by the CEOs of the two companies: Toni Salom by Nautipaints and Xiqui Mas by Varador 2000.
The two companies —models of the Spanish nautical sector— have followed parallel trajectories over the last decades, evolving in the second generation towards new more specialized activity niches that have generated the demands of the sector itself. The confluence of professional interests has led these two innovative companies to share spaces, equipment, activities and future goals.
Nautipaints is one of the pioneer companies of the Balearic Islands nautical sector. Founded in 1971 by Miguel Salom (with the name of Nauti-Pesca Can Miquel), from 1991 he transformed his activity along with his son Toni Salom, who in 1997 created the superyachts painting division and over the years makes it a leading company in this segment of activity nationally and internationally.
Currently Nautipaints has specialized in works related to the painting and maintenance of superyachts and megayachts. It also makes interior and exterior varnishes, polished with nanotechnology, as well as antifouling and tank painting, among others. Nautipaints is a painting services company that satisfies all the needs of superyachts finishes. The company also has two naval accessories stores (where its origins lie) and sale of paintings in Palma and another in Barcelona.
Varador 2000, with 35 years of experience in the world of professional nautical, manages a shipyard in the port of Arenys de Mar specialised in integral repair & refit of all types of boats and lengths, both sail and motor. Created in second generation by Xiqui Mas —as a continuation of the sports nautical company founded by Lluís Mas in 1969, Nautica Esplai—, the company transforms its activity and in 1992 assumes the management of the port’s boathouse, which extends to 10,000 m² in 2003.
Recently, Varador 2000 has expanded its technical esplanade by another 2,500 m², with new beaching spaces and new specialised workshops. The company also manages the nautical base for boats of great length Mataró Marina Barcelona in the port of Mataró and has a delegation in Palma (Mallorca). Thanks to these powerful infrastructures, Varador 2000 offers its customers a global service in the Mediterranean with an unbeatable guarantee: experience, commitment, service, innovation and quality.
