Delivered in 2010, Eternity was assessed in Hong Kong before being shipped to the Florida-based shipyard to begin the refit at the Rybovich shipyard on March 17, 2018. Her new post-refit look was later debuted at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The refit, which was overseen by Hill Robinson and project manager Chris Wright, spanned a full interior and exterior overhaul. This included the full repainting of the hull and superstructure and new caulking for the teak on three decks.
The two foredeck cranes, side boarding ladder, gangway and transom door were completely rebuilt while the three generators were overhauled.
The two main engines and emergency diesel generator were serviced, and new electronics were installed throughout.
Interior designer Suzanne Lovell was responsible for the the yacht’s new interior décor. The previously dark interior was transformed with a lighter wallpaper wrapped over the existing veneer. The main saloon bar was also completely rebuilt.
Wright described the interior refit as “a dramatic change.” “This complex and challenging refit was in part achieved with the direct involvement and support by the captain and his phenomenal crew, but also by detailed planning and knowing the right vendors to call.”
He added: “As many projects have experienced, you don’t know what you’re going to get until things are opened up, so being able to plan for the unexpected is vital.”
The vessel is now offered for charter through Burgess, with preferential access offered to the residents of Bahar Mar’s Bahamas-based luxury residences Rosewood and SLS.
