Superyacht refit specialist Oceania Marine has completed refit works on superyacht Relentless.

Originally launched as China by Kingship in 2006, this 33m motoryacht has been at Oceania Marine’s North Shipyard in Port Whangarei, New Zealand, for the past three and a half months.

Oceania Marine was chosen to take on it’s 10 year Lloyd’s survey and refit. The work was oversaw by project managers Gordon French and Brent Charlesworth.

Commenting on the project, French says: “The work list was extensive, as one would expect. It not only covered survey works but also system upgrades, painting and so on.

“The project was further complicated by the fact that the interior had suffered water damage during a storm and this had to be put right. Consequently all divisions of Oceania Marine Group were involved,” he concludes.

Refit works

The 10 year survey entailed extensive engineering and mechanical works most of which was completed by Oceania Marine’s team of engineers, assisted by Gough Cat, who handled the main engines.

Work on the electrical system was in charge of Marine and Industrial Electrics.

The corrosion and paint repair as well as antifouling and Prop Speed is all work of Oceania Marine Coatings.

Oceania Interiors completed the interior repairs and upgrades.
