Feadship Superyacht W Begins Six Month Refit
by Miranda Blazeby
Previously named Larisa, W was launched in 2013 and sold to new owners in June. The extensive refit will include modifications to general on board facilities, accommodation and the exterior.
Most notably, the white hull will be repainted a metallic silver, while a large Jacuzzi will be installed on the sun deck.
A new lower deck interior layout will also be installed, with the current VIP converted into two guest suites. This will increase the number of cabins on the lower deck to four.
The bridge deck lounge will also become a convertible cabin large enough to accommodate two further guests. A Murphy’s bed will be installed, and the deck day-head refitted into a dedicated bathroom.
The majority of the Bannenberg & Rowell-penned design will be preserved, with a few personal touches added by the Fort Lauderdale based studio A La Mer Inc. The owner’s stateroom on the main deck will also be retained.
W is due to be relaunched in mid-March 2020.
