The yacht successfully completed sea trials and was handed back to its owner in September 2021 and has since completed a maiden voyage in the Saronic Gulf. It comes after the yacht was relaunched at the Psarros yard in Perama, Greece in September 2021.
Following delivery, the yacht is described as a "whole different boat" which "bears little resemblance to its original form."
The scope of the refit work, which began in January 2018, saw the yacht stripped down to the hull and rebuilt from scratch.
The yacht's length was also successfully extended to 45 meters following a stern conversion. The stern now integrates a brand new garage for one of the yacht's two tenders and a generous swim platform. The second tender sits on the sun deck and is deployed and retrieved with a crane.
Naval architecture was undertaken by Navinco Naval Architects while the interior design was penned by AMK Architecture and Design. The exterior meanwhile was a collaboration between Navinco, AMK and project supervisor Tasos Keramidas.
Crew areas have also been updated with the aim to make service as seamless as possible, inclduding transferring the galley from the lower deck to the main deck for easier mealtime service. Crew accommodations have also been increased to make space for a ninth member. Otherwise, the yacht’s capacity remains the same, with room for up to 12 guests split across six cabins.
The deck spaces have also benefited from the refit, with the extra five metres being used to extend the sundeck and upper deck — all the better for enjoying the Mediterranean lifestyle.
First launched in 1994, the tri-deck motor yacht was sold back in June 2017. The owner was keen to revive a pedigree yacht from a bygone era and give it a new lease of life with a view to putting it on the charter market.
Other key upgrades include a blue hull finish, new Naiad stabilisers, a complete zero-hours overhaul of the original MTU engines and a total modification of the naval architecture to improve fuel efficiency and speed.
