Palmawatch are in The North Dock Building in STP Palma.Peter Franklin
A place where a wide range of professional marine services can be accessed, all under one roof…
When a number of independent marine service companies offering complimentary skills and products find themselves conveniently situated inside one of the largest and most advanced repair/refit yards in Europe, it makes sense to let the yachting world know that they are easy to find, and very ready to do business.
With this simple but convincing concept in mind, the directors of eight independent specialist service providers who all occupy the same building within STP Palma yard, decided to create a common identity which clearly distinguishes their work place, and its considerable outreach to yacht owners, captains and owner’s reps.
And so it was, that the title of ‘The North Dock Building’ was born, which now describes the facility situated right alongside the 700 ton travel lift at the North end of STP’s 70,000 sq. metres of work space, and also close to the dockage which offers another 35,000 sq. metres of berthing space for yachts under repair.
Some of the companies inside the North Dock Building have been reliably serving client’s yachts in Mallorca for up to 20 years, so it goes without saying that the range of skills, products, craftsmanship and dedication is at the highest possible level.
The list is extensive and comprehensive as follows:
Antifouling Application, Electrics, Electronics, Fixtures & Fittings, Haul Out Works, Interior Works, Joinery and Teak Decks, Material Supplies, Marine installations, Paint finish and Re-sprays, Paint and Material Supplies, Plumbing and Installations, Refit and Project Management, Sails Supply and Repairs, Scaffold & Boat Covers, Shrink-wrap, Welding and Metal Machining.
The eight independent companies who have put their names behind the North Dock identity are:
Anicla (Paint / Coating Supplies), De Cabo (Painting / Polishing / Antifouling), Palmawatch (Refit / Repairs / Haul-Outs), IBS (Electrics / Electronics), Undercover (Yacht Containment / Covers / Shrink-Wrap / Fixtures & Fittings), Trappmann (Interiors / Design / Upholstery), Servicios Náuticos Integrados (Painting / Antifouling / Propspeed Application), Munditubo (Scaffolding / Yacht Covering.)
The North Dock Building can be clearly seen and identified from anywhere in STP thanks to four large signs now displayed on the roof, and a website which links to more information on each company with their full contact details is now online at: www.thenorthdock.com
