Colonna Yachts began its service to the mega-yacht industry in 1992 with a haul out of the M/Y VIRGINIAN. Since then, we have served many other high profile and distinguished yachts of various builds from the world over. Special projects have included hull extensions, engine and generator re-powers, superstructure modifications, and class surveys.


In 1998, the company established a distinct yacht yard facility for servicing yachts up to 58 meters and separate from the parent shipyard, which serves commercial and military ships in addition to deep draft and heavy lift mega-yachts of virtually unlimited size.


In 2003, the company also established a sailing yacht service center designed for the special needs of large sailing yachts; for example deep draft, unrestricted air draft, and ground space for rigs. Additionally, our maritime community is also host to various supporting contractors and specialists. Let us put our proven reputation for skill, economy, and timely deliveries to work for you on your next project.
