Dream Refit


Based in Barcelona and in Dubrovnik, we assist captains and senior crews by providing them with our technical services, performing on-board inspections and preparing complete refit lists when required.

«We cannot predict the amount of Contract Variation Orders you will get during the refit due to new requests, but we can help you understand the costs of ancillary services to give a realistic initial budget to the Owner and avoid asking for extra budget at a later stage.»

Technical content


Managed vs Unmanaged

According to unofficial sources, it is estimated that 24% of superyachts have contracted the services of management companies.

If you are part of that remaining 76%, please do not hesitate to contact us to help you prepare valuable technical content for your next yacht refit.

We relieve you of the workload of preparing the work list, while you can dedicate yourself to the relevant tasks on board.

Stay on budget

Having a report on the condition of the yacht before a refit, after a busy charter season or before a sale and purchase transaction can help to avoid problems at a later stage.

Preparing a yacht refit project in detail involves a great deal of work and planning, which also requires specific knowledge in many areas and aspects of refit.

A complete paint job seems easy to budget for, but many ancillary services must be taken into account, not only financially, but also time-wise.

Dani Puig



During my time at trade school in mechanics, the mechanical technology professor sparked my interest in the world of Shipping and at that moment I knew what I wanted to dedicate my professional life to. The time I spent on board merchant ships helped me to structure all the knowledge I had previously acquired in mechanics, technology, engineering, workshop work, technical drawings, or electrical diagrams.

The subsequent time spent in one of the world’s leading refit shipyard, as Technical and Quotations Director, helped me to understand the technical requirements for planning, budgeting and carrying out superyacht refit projects. At the age of 10 I started computer programming classes and this captivated me in such a way, that in 2016 I decided to start a new adventure in the world of computer science and start-ups.

Almost more than 40 years practicing competitive sports (judo, taekwondo, soccer, football, mountain running, enduro and trial, UltraCycling or skiing) have made me very focused and resilient at work. Currently I am still passionate about the combination of my three worlds, yachting, sports and computer science.

Miquel Antonio

Technical Advisor | Naval Architect


As a Naval engineer, my professional journey has revolved around Yacht Management and the Technical side of the Boatbuilding industry. While learning from different projects and people, I focused my knowledge on the Yachting Industry, from Brokerage processes to the most deeply technical Inspections and refits, and alongside, I’ve cultivated my own business as a Yacht Surveyor.

Through the years, I’ve confronted intricate technical challenges within the yachting industry, triumphing with and thanks to the team and the professional cooperation. Beyond my maritime expertise, I’m an avid sky runner, with a youthful stint as a basketball coach, where I honed invaluable team management skills. These diverse experiences have uniquely shaped my approach to professional endeavors.

Yet, amid these pursuits, my heart truly lies with my family and my two cherished children. They are the core of my life, providing inspiration and purpose to all that I do.

With over 28 years of extensive experience in marine engineering, Darko Paluncic has enjoyed a distinguished career, primarily on board prestigious cruise ships, including roles as Chief Engineer (C/E) for Carnival UK’s fleet – most notably on Azura, Ventura and Queen Victoria. His tenure on the luxury yacht MY Mayan Queen IV since 2013 has further cemented his reputation in the industry. Darko is deeply committed to maritime safety and environmental protection, exemplified by his work in International Maritime Policy Compliance and his dedication as an MCA Officer Cadet Trainer.

In a significant step towards professional development and recognition, Darko recently gained membership of The International Association of Marine Consultants & Surveyors, underlining his commitment to the highest standards of maritime excellence and integrity.

Darko’s passion for marine engineering is matched by his enthusiasm for the great outdoors. An avid scuba diver, he finds solace and excitement beneath the waves, exploring the silent world while respecting its biodiversity and promoting the conservation of underwater habitats. His adventurous spirit doesn’t stop at sea; on land he is equally passionate about enduro and trial motorcycles, reveling in the challenge and freedom they offer through rugged terrain and open landscapes.

Beyond his professional and adventurous pursuits, Darko is a lifelong learner and innovator, constantly seeking to integrate the latest technological advances into his marine engineering practice. His approach to problem solving is informed by a blend of practical experience and theoretical knowledge, which he enthusiastically shares with future generations of marine engineers. Darko’s diverse interests and commitments make him a versatile and invaluable asset to our team, embodying the spirit of exploration and excellence that defines our mission.
