EXPERT OPINION: Growth in Marine Interiors Market

As a British brand with global values it’s no surprise Trimline has had a busy year so far, with marine interior refurbishment projects varying in size and complexity secured for a wide variety of cruise companies.

For Trimline, the marine interior refurbishment specialists, the last three months have been spent securing work with P&O Cruises, Disney Cruises, Cunard Line, Noble Caledonia, Windstar Cruises, Thomson Cruises, Holland America Line and Royal Caribbean.

Value driven partnerships are an integral part of Trimline’s ethics, which makes them a trusted partner for the refurbishment and maintenance of many of the World’s cruise lines.

Trimline has worked with several cruise lines and ferry companies that have undergone a rebrand, or added new tonnage to their fleet including Windstar Cruises, Thomson Cruises, DFDS and Red Funnel, TT-Line, Condor Ferries. To ensure a rebrand is successful, the team at Trimline work closely with their clients so they can build a tailored solution which meets and exceeds their passengers’ needs. By planning for success Trimline can ensure that by the time the work takes place it can do so with the minimum amount of disruption, and can be delivered on brand, on time and on budget.

Recent refurbishments carried out have included a £3million refit for Thomson Cruises’ Dream, as well as a refresh of the company’s Celebration. Trimline had worked successfully with Thomson previously on other projects, and it was this knowledge of the company which meant they were confident in managing two refits with differing requirements. A previous collaboration with DFDS influenced the decision to use Trimline for the recently completed double ferry transformation of the Cote des Flandres and the Cote des Dunes.

There are many projects in the pipeline for Trimline over the next few months, including refits for P&O Cruises, Noble Caledonia, Cunard Line, Windstar Cruises, The World, Thomson Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn, Azamara and Grand Circle Cruises.

Trimline’s CEO Andrew Richards, isn’t surprised the Southampton based company has been so busy over the past three months, he said:

“There has been a real growth in the marine refit market with customers wanting more from their cruises. In turn cruise companies want to go further for their customers and we’re thrilled to be at the forefront of such high quality marine refurbishments.”

He added: “Cruise refurbishments need to achieve a high level of luxury throughout. For us that means continually exceeding expectations in terms of quality, turnaround and project management by working closely with our clients from the start.”

Trimline is well supported in multiple ship refurbishments and to ensure that all refits are met on time and on budget, the company can rely on its 120 land-based staff, 1,000 staff on the ground, and the constantly evolving technology the company uses at its purpose built site in Southampton, UK.
