Holland Jachtbouw schooner Athos relaunched after Orams refit

Orams Marine Services has relaunched Athos, the 62 metre Holland Jachtbouw schooner, after an extensive refit.

The most noticeable change is the hull, which has been transformed from blue to stark white, with a gold cover line, turquoise boot stripe and green anti-foul.

The high-gloss exterior varnish on the superstructure and deck furniture was also refreshed at the refit firm’s Auckland yard.

Craig Park, managing director of Orams Marine Services, said: “I enjoyed the opportunity to share in the owner’s vision to create a more classic look to an already stunning yacht.”

Orams Marine Services added that more than 120 engineering and maintenance tasks were carried out on board Athos, involving a wide range of systems and equipment. These included replacement of the compressed air pipe work throughout the engine room and a refit of the rudder.

Most challenging was a complete sail inventory check with both of her Rondal masts removed and serviced by Rigpro. What’s more, Doyle Sails replaced the staysail and mainsail with new Stratis Carbon Technora membranes, prior to her recent sea trials.

Lee Sigley, refit project manager at Orams Marine Services, said: “Refits of this complexity and time frame are always challenging. The result was based on the excellent relationship we had with the captain, the crew and our contractors.”

Designed by Hoek Naval Architects and launched by Holland Jachtbouw in 2010, Athos sleeps 10 guests in an owner's cabin and four guest cabins. At launch, she was described as the largest privately owned two-masted schooner in the world.
