San Diego Attracts World Class Sailing Yachts

Marine Group Boat Works is currently servicing three Perini Navi sailing yachts: 183-foot S/Y ROSEHEARTY, 173-foot S/Y TAMSEN and 158-foot S/Y MORNING GLORY.

  • One of the few white Perini Navis in the world, S /Y ROSEHEARTY at 183 feet, is getting some paint touch ups, structural work, underwater hull paint, shell door and passerelle service and other minor repairs. Upon completion, S/Y Rosehearty will dock at Fifth Avenue Landing in downtown before making her way to warmer waters.
  • S/Y TAMSEN, at 173-feet, is on her second visit to Marine Group Boat Works where she’s getting minor mechanical repairs, underwater hull paint and miscellaneous paint repairs.
  • Last but not least, after navigating the globe for over 10 years, 158-foot S/Y MORNING GLORY is being restored to her original, pristine condition. This large scale project includes repowering and rebuilding the main engines, installing brand new generators, re-plumbing, laying down new teakwood floors and decks, re-rigging the masts and full custom paint.

The arrival of S/Y Rosehearty, S/Y TAMSEN and S/Y Morning Glory will mark Marine Group Boat Works’ fourth Perini Navi project. The first Perini Navi yacht that the boatyard serviced was S/Y ANDROMEDA LA DEA, a 154-foot yacht famed for being the first Perini to circumnavigate the globe.

San Diego Attracts World Class Sailing Yachts“While we invested a lot of time and money into creating a superyacht repair facility that rivals those in Europe and other places around the world, we wouldn’t be on the map if it wasn’t for San Diego’s blend of resources, attractions and superyacht accommodations,” said Todd Roberts, vice president of Marine Group Boat Works. “Aside from our great weather, captains and crew love this city for the mere fact that they can pull in a days’ work at our boatyard, then go home to change for a quick surf, dinner at one of the many restaurants and/or night on the town.”

San Diego Superyacht Association’s president Paul Daubner is delighted to have the famous superyachts in San Diego “Having a fleet of this caliber here just shows why San Diego is the leader for quality refits.”
