2020-09-18By Miranda Blazeby

Feadship has completed the complete renovation of the classic 1954 superyacht Istros.

The 42 metre De Vries Lentsch-built yacht has now left Feadship's Makkum yard and is currently in Monaco, according to BOAT Pro.

The complete renovation of the yacht, which began in 2018, saw the interior overhauled into "family-orientated, sunny Scandinavian style" with "contemporary and classic elements".

The renovation also included the installation of a brand new engine room for Istros' new propulsion. This consisted of twin C18 main engines, a C4.4 diesel generator and a Capstone DC 65 diesel Micro Turbine generator.

A restoration project on the yacht was originally started in 2013 by H2 Yacht Design and Laurent Giles Naval Architects but aborted due to financial difficulties. The sale of the yacht in 2018  resulted in this fresh restoration attempt by the new owner.
