My sailing yacht was since October 2018 until I left in July 2020 with the Marina Seca. That nothing will forget to serviced or renew, I have compiled an excel list. Unfortunately the Marina Seca only partially responded to this and let time pass out with doing nothing on the boat.
The maintenance was not really done, and I had to give the sailing yacht again in Las Palmas to Rolnautic to check it through.
Things which could be done by Marina Seca wasn't done or lousy.
Rolnautic in Las Palmas have an excellent concept to check a yacht from top to bottom and going very deep in the material and they didn't need 2 year like the shipyard in A Coruna. It took only some days to see, what wasn't done or what has to be renewed/replaced or repair.
For the ship yard in A Coruna is this a very poor attest. On this point I can not recommend the Marina Seca. Maybe if they change the concept how to work (with workflows, so nothing goes forgotten) and give the peoples educations, they have a chance to come on the market as a good ship yard. I wrote them and provide them with a video, but didn't heard any thing (except from the office woman, but I except, that the manager will contact me). Very poor.
