Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht Muzuni begins Atollvic Shipyard refit
by Chris Jefferies
The 30.21 metre sloop-rigged sailing superyacht Muzuni has been hauled out at Atollvic Shipyard where she will undergo a winter refit.
First launched by Finnish yard Nautor’s Swan in 2005 as the second hull in the Swan 100 series, Muzuni arrived at the Spanish refit facility earlier this month. Key upgrades will include a complete repaint of her GRP hull, superstructure and mast, as well as extensive renewal of her teak decks.
Featuring interior and exterior design by long-term Nautor's Swan collaborator German Frers, Muzuni has previously gone by the names Fantasticaaa and Kora. She can accommodate up to seven guests in three cabins, arranged as a master suite and two twins, one of which has been fitted with a Pullman berth. Meanwhile the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to five people.
Her flush-deck design and timeless interiors are a key part of her appeal on the charter market, where she has proven to be a particularly popular option as a regatta-ready yacht for charter.
Under power she relies on a single 265hp Perkins-Sabre M265TI engine to reach her top speed of 11 knots. When trimmed back to her economic speed of nine knots, Muzuni boasts a cruising range of 1,200 nautical miles.
Other superyacht refit projects undertaken by the Spanish yard this year include the 58.8 metre J&K Smit expedition yacht Sea Wolf and the 33.5 metre classic yacht No 4 of London, both of which were completed back in March.
