Integrated Marine Group
Integrated Marine Group was formed in 2003 specifically to offer a highly improved service to the Superyacht Refit and Repair industry in Auckland. Specializing in Superyacht refits in Auckland for sixteen years now, this highly recommended company offer the complete range of services expected to meet the most demanding requirements of refit, repair and maintenance aboard Superyachts and Expedition vessels.
All aspects of refit and repair are covered, from routine repairs & maintenance through to very complex refits, working in the client’s interest to optimize available time and budget to best advantage.
Recognizing that refits don't have to be hard and unpleasant, I.M.G have a great team involved from the top to bottom utilizing highly experienced staff with a ‘make it happen attitude’, they can transform the process for their clientele who readily bear testiment to this.
Core I.M.G refit & repair services include: Vessel Painting (wet berth and shipyard), all manner of interior work, deck systems (and all related deck services), mechanical engineering, electrical & electronics, plumbing & domestic Systems, hydraulics navigational equipment, galley & domestic services, slipway or docking periods, safety systems & Class Surveys, design & new build and vessel warranty repair support services for Shipyards.
Heading the company, Mark Wightman has worked in the marine industry for 26 years to gain vast experience and knowledge of the needs and requirements of the IMG Superyacht clientele. Yacht support and concierge services are covered by Alison Walker and we heard how Dave Low heading the refit and repair section is ‘brilliant’ at project managing and interacting with the owners / Captains and sub contractors.
I.M.G came highly recommended by many crew we spoke with, for their crew placement services. Interviewing each crew member personally they look after both the crew and Captains by really going out of the way to match each to each other.
IMG use online software for their yacht crew candidate database which allows crew to maintain their data giving them an accurate and up to date database of recruits.
Integrated Marine Group continue to come highly recommended by many Captains as being a ‘key’ company in New Zealand to assist with all Superyacht services. We received some great feedback for Alison who heads yacht support and equally for managing director - Mark Wightman - who provides a comprehensive refit team for yachts under refit or repair in Auckland.
