Moonen superyacht Sofia returns to home yard for "extensive" refit

The 42 metre semi-explorer Moonen yacht Sofia has returned to her home yard for an “extensive” refit. Fresh from summer cruising in the Mediterranean, Sofia arrived at the yard’s refit facilities in Groot-Ammers, in the Netherlands earlier this month.

She is set to undergo a series of refit works, including an extensive exterior paint job, demounting of all equipment and the removing of stainless steel items to allow the hull to be repainted.

The refit team will also undertake a thorough inspection of the vessel to identify any additional maintenance work.

The yard revealed that Sofia is set to be listed for sale following her re-launch, which is slated for March 2019.

Moonen Yachts chief executive Johan Dubbelman said, “We are very pleased to welcome Sofia back home to Moonen for her refit works and we’re looking forward to assisting the owners with bringing her to the market once works are complete.”

The news comes as work continues on the build of the 36 metre sister ship to Brigadoon, which launched in June. The cutting of the steel and aluminium has now begun, and the keel is scheduled to be laid at the end of October. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2020.
