Nautipaints will have a new technical base for  painting of superyachts at the Varador 2000  shipyard

Nautipaints and Varador 2000 have signed an industrial collaboration agreement whereby the prestigious Mallorcan company who are specialists 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 specialist 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 has made it a leading company in this segment of activity both nationally and internationally.

Currently Nautipaints has specialised in works related to the painting and maintenance of superyachts and megayachts. It also does interior and exterior varnishes, polishing 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 sells  paints 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  nautical company founded by Lluís Mas in 1969, Nautica Esplai—, the company transforms its activity and in 1992 assumed 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 in Mataró Marina Barcelona  and has a representative 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.

The two companies will offer more details about the importance of their collaboration soon, within the framework of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). On September 25, the first day of the event, starting at 5 p.m., representatives of the two companies will attend to customers and visitors at the Varador 2000 stand (AL4 of the Tent Albert 1er closed exhibition tent).
