Converted motor yacht Vervece launched by Palumbo

Converted motor yacht Vervece launched by Palumbo

Palumbo Shipyard in Naples has launched Vervece, a former 30 metre tug converted into a luxury motor yacht.

According to the Italian yard, Vervece is virtually a new build with parts of her hull changed and a new superstructure built.

The yacht's engine room was rebuilt and new equipment installed including engines, generators and an air-conditioning system. The original single shaft propeller was replaced with twin props - a modification visible on the picture above. Vervece is now powered by twin 746kW Cummins engines giving a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at this speed.

Vervece was built to RINA class by an Italian yard in 1964, but she's now Charter Class and MCA compliant. Her voluminous design gives her a gross tonnage of 300 GRT.

Alongside its refit activity, Palumbo is currently building three yachts (40m, 55m and 60m) under its brand Columbus Yacht.
