Deep Blue II checked into Lusben in November 2021 and was redelivered to her owner in May 2022. Her winter refit programme was supervised by captain Meo Palmieri, M/Y Deep Blue II's manager, and included a full hull and superstructure repaint, an interior refresh and a reconfiguration of the sun deck.
The sun deck was a key area of focus during the refit in order to continue the yacht's charter success and maximise her market appeal. The space was remodelled to include a bar and barbecue area, a new Jacuzzi and movable sun loungers, while a large crane was removed to create more space for guests to move about. The modification of the sundeck was complete with the assistance of Engineering Studio Nattero Genova.
The interior benefitted from a repaint, new carpet, new upholstery and new curtains throughout to brighten the look and feel of the vessel. The saloon is now a lighter space for guests to relax and a new marble dining table is a welcome addition. The reupholstery of the yacht's soft furnishings, across the interior and exterior, was completed by P.f. Cabib di Dario e Liana Cabib, along with the repanelling of the bed bases and walls.
Deep Blue II can sleep up to 10 guests in a flexible four or five-cabin layout: a convertible VIP suite on the lower deck can be used as a full-beam cabin with an adjoining lounge area or converted into two separate guest cabins. All the leather bench tops in the guest cabins were replaced with marble.
The owners of Deep Blue II also took the opportunity to take delivery of a new 12-metre Axopar 37 chase boat and a second Jet ski. On the technical side, a full service of the engineering and electronic components was completed.
Deep Blue II is currently available for charter with Edmiston from €135,000 per week. She will be cruising the West Mediterranean this summer.
