Atollvic has completed a four month refit of the 59m 56-year-old expedition yacht Seawolf. The work involved more than the average five-year survey, with the installation of a new AC system, replacement of the sewerage tank, the addition of 26 square metres of hull plate replacement, aft deck crane refurbishment, fully rebuilt steering, retrofitted anchor windlass from DC to AC power, a new AMS system and fire detection system installed.
Integrated Marine Group, which had Seawolf in its Auckland yard 18 months ago, completed the paint job, sending a skilled workforce to complement Atollvic’s own team. IMG and Atollvic established a joint venture in 2012 of which Diego Gomez, the commercial manager at Atollvic says, “Working in cohesion, we’re able to deliver a quality, consistent finish, guaranteeing a great result while working with the yacht’s schedule.”
Captain Drag Richards comments about his experience at the yard, “I could not be happier with the service, quality and efficiency by Atollvic. We under took a major of work in a short period of time. Most pleasing for all involved was the great attitude from all involved across the board which in turn made for a great yard period and a very pleasing end result for Seawolf.”
Atollvic’s yard includes two floating moorings, a 70m long, 22m high shed and a 75m slipway. On a visit in June last year, SB found the shipyard to be tidy and well run.
