Intense six-week refit marks 10 years of project management
September 20, 2017
Integrated Marine Group’s project manager, Dave Low, has recently marked ten years with the company with the completion of an intense six-week refit program for a client who has returned for a third refit period with Integrated Marine.
Integrated Marine recently completed an intense six week refit on a 59 metre explorer yacht under the expert management of Dave Low, who is this month celebrating his tenth year with the company. Low has played a vital role in generating Integrated Marine’s reputation for organisational excellence. He began in 2007 with a project on M/Y Karima and has used his years of experience as a yacht engineer to ensure projects have run smoothly over the 25 refits that followed.
This most recent refit is the yacht’s third time with the team at Integrated Marine, and the in-water work was planned well in advance to carry o
ut fabrication and structural improvements in time to get the yacht to its next destination on time. Integrated Marine’s strong reputation has been built by the team’s ability to identify the clients unique requirements and plan efficient repair programs that get yachts back out on the water and cruising with minimum downtime.
One of the key factors to Low’s success has been the commendable core team of skilled contractors he’s pulled together to execute high quality work. It means yachts which come to New Zealand for yard periods have the best possible workmanship at their fingertips with one reliable point of contact to coordinate all aspects of the work.
Integrated Marine Group’s annual golf tournament returns on 30 November.
Each year, superyacht crew and members of the industry gather to test their golfing prowess, raise money for a good cause and generally have a great time at the Integrated Marine golf tournament. Spot prizes on the day, awards for the best outfit, a BBQ lunch and the ever-popular beer carts have made the event a favourite as the summer season gets underway.
Integrated Marine’s central Auckland base is just one of the factors which has made Integrated Marine popular with crew, with monthly events and an annual charity golf tournament run by Integrated Marine both adding to the experience visiting yacht crew have in New Zealand.
