Burgess Marine to complete 57m Swiftships superyacht refit
by Risa Merl
Burgess Marine has secured the refit of a 57m Swiftships superyacht at its Portchester, UK, yard.
The major refit of Tacanuya, launched in 1992, is to take place in eight to nine months and will include structural, mechanical and electrical works as well as painting and major interior overhaul by Trimline Superyacht Interiors.
Nicholas Warren, Burgess Marine’s Managing Director, says, 'Refits on this scale are great news for Burgess Marine, and perhaps, more importantly, great news for the South Coast and the rest of the UK. She’s a substantial vessel with a major programme of works and we look forward to working very closely with the owner's team'
Andrew Tree of Superyacht Technical Services heads up the owners team and was instrumental in deciding to bring the refit to the UK and selecting Burgess Marine. Tree says, 'It’s great to see her coming to the UK - I’ve known the yacht for many years and it’s a great privilege to be part of this next and exciting phase of her life.'
Burgess Marine also has the refit of a 33m Hakvoort and a 34m explorer yacht from Brooke Marine in the works at the company's Portchester yard.
