Her new light brown hull finish was the most obvious change, but Polar Star's 2016 refit at MB92 was more than skin deep. The entire 1,495GT interior of this Lürssen superyacht was completely reimagined by FM Architettura d’Interni using a colour palette of delicate silver grey, with aquamarine and bronze accents. What's more, her swim platform was extended by 2.2 metres without losing the rugged charm of her Espen Øino exterior styling.

The owner of Broadwater was very clear in his intentions for this 50 metre yacht's Lauderdale Marine Center refit — it had to retain her Feadship pedigree while adding serious charter appeal. This was achieved in less than seven months, despite widespread changes including the removal of the sauna, the installation of a main-deck VIP cabin, al fresco dining area and an all-new interior by Adam Vorhees. "It was an all or nothing prospect," the owner adds. "It was impossible to start and stop once you got started, and I knew that from the beginning.”

Launched in 1983 as New Horizon L, the 67.21 metre Feadship yacht Falcon Lair completed a major overhaul at La Ciotat-based refit yard Compositeworks in 2015. The ten-month project saw her white exterior replaced with a new deep blue finish designed by British studio Olesinski Naval Architects. Her superstructure was completely remodelled forward of the radar mast, while her transom was extended by three metres. The result was a more modern look that still pays homage to the original design, and a Best Refit nomination for the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.
