37m Fair Lady completes two-phase refit at Huisfit

12 December 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

The 36.9-metre Fair Lady has completed a comprehensive refit at Huisfit (the refit arm of the Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman) over two consecutive winters.

Originally built in 1928, the two-phase programme saw her "thoroughly updated while still maintaining her classic looks", according to Huisfit.

Fair Lady was purchased by her new owner in 2021. Refit work began in November 2021, which included hull repairs, hull painting and varnish repairs, as well as maintenance of the main engines, gensets and stabilisers. Interior work included a new main saloon, galley and pantry with updated equipment. Guest cabins were also refurbished and new carpets were installed. The renovations were completed in "just three months" so that the owner would be able to cruise during the spring and summer of 2022.

Fair Lady returned to Huisfit for "phase two" in September 2022. This time around, work encompassed an entirely new bridge, overhauling the twin Gardener main engines and installing new gensets and stabilisers. Further repairs were made to her hull plating, which then necessitated additional hull painting.

"The on-time and successful relaunch of Fair Lady, is the result of intensive and fruitful teamwork among everyone at Huisfit, as well as the thoughtful owner and his representatives,” said Stefan Coronel, Huisfit manager. "Thanks to the owner’s vision to preserve Fair Lady’s heritage, this classic motor yacht will not become forgotten history. We wish fair winds to Fair Lady."

This follows Huisfit's two-year rebuild of the 37.3-metre classic sailer Atlantide.
