Whether it’s a cruise ship, a yacht or a special craft, the vessels of XXI century are cutting-edge technology means of transport. Energy saving, protection of the environment, state-of-the-art amusement equipment, safety… on board are of an extremely high standard, made of course even more complicate by confined spaces, need of integration and having to cope with functioning on a self-propelled and independent “floating resort”.

In three decades of experience, Thalia’s engineers found themselves to deal with new and exciting scope of works and challenges. Thalia built up a strong network of connections with professionals and companies worldwide which has always been able to supply the right information and expertise to solve a specific issue in extremely fast times.

This aspect has always been highly appreciated by our clients as one of the utmost Thalia’s strength. The Company worked as well with countless contractors and has therefore built up a library of the latest and very best outfitting standards.
