Feadship has revealed that it is currently involved in carrying out or preparing for five refit projects, including a major refit and maintenance programme for a 70m-plus Feadship.
The Dutch yard has not disclosed details of this contract, however it has said that the project is being fully managed and executed by Feadship in partnership alongside its sub-contractors and partners.
In addition, the 81m a Feadship-built Air is also in the Netherlands for Class surveys and some work to increase her fuel tank capacity.
She will be joined in September by 47.5m motoryacht Tatasu. The yacht will arrive at the yard for a comprehensive engine room update. Works to be carried out include replacing the main engines, generators and switchboards, to name but a few.
The 49.9m Aurora will join Tatasu in the main building shed at Feadship Makkum’s refit location, which is being extended for that purpose to accommodate refits up to 70m in length.
Aurora will have her sewerage system updated to meet the latest IMO requirements, a range of construction work carried out and a full repaint.
Feadship has also announced that it is involved with a ‘remote’ refit of the Predator at a yard in the South of France. The project involves enhancing the accommodation capacity from six to ten on this 72.8m Feadship by adding two guest suites. The refit order also includes to renew the galley equipment. All work is being managed and carried out by Feadship.
Predator should be ready to cruise again this summer season.
