The redelivery of the yacht to its owners marks the end of Lürssen's biggest refit to date. The extensive refit got underway in May 2019 following the sale of the yacht in November 2018. The refit was overseen by Burgess Technical Services.
Speaking about the finished project, Burgess's Ed Beckett said: “This was an incredibly demanding project particularly in relation to timing and quality expectations – the end result is really quite exceptional and was only achieved with great teamwork from all involved.”
The extensive refit included Sam Sorgiovanni-styled alterations made to both the exterior and interior of the yacht, which were incorporated into the original design. Existing and new interior spaces were penned by Reymond Langton Design.
Project manager Thomas Dapp said: "What you see from outside already looks significant, but the majority of the work was done on the interior. Overall, we renewed 1,500 square metres of interior spaces.”
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Oceanco to a design by Igor Lobanov, Kaos was first delivered in 2017 as the largest yacht built in The Netherlands.
The interior was originally designed by Sam Sorgiovanni and accommodates 30 guests in 15 cabins. Four VIP cabins sit on the bridge deck, while a further 10 guest suites are located on the main deck. Kaos also has an entirely private owner’s deck that enjoys unmatched views.
