The Scenic Group’s MKM Yachts officially welcomed to Croatian shipyard

Last Thursday, 2 July, The Scenic Group’s newly formed shipbuilding company, MKM Yachts, was granted a sub concession of the Maj 3 Shipyard in Rijeka, Croatia, in an official signing ceremony attended by the Croatian Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Sea, Oleg Butkovic.
The newly formed business – MKM Yachts – wholly owned by the Scenic Group, will be the prime contractor for all of the group’s new-build projects in Croatia, with construction of Scenic Eclipse II already underway. The Group recently confirmed construction of a further four custom-built vessels over the next six years, all of which will continue the brand’s signature 6-star standard.

Glen Moroney, Chairman of the Scenic Group commented:

“This is a very exciting development for the Scenic Group to build on the experiences gained with the construction of Scenic Eclipse I and utilising the team we have built that delivered her in difficult circumstances. Plans are well advanced for future projects and we look forward to sharing these at the appropriate time.”

The ceremony marks a significant milestone for the Australian-owned business and demonstrates its confidence in the luxury yacht market. The business continues to secure its position as a major player in the global industry and experts in small-ship cruising.
