by Miranda Blazeby
The 34.17 metre sailing superyacht Spiip has returned to her home yard for a winter refit. The German Frers-designed Royal Huisman superyacht arrived at the Netherlands-based refit facility Huisfit after completing a summer cruise in Scandinavian waters.
Spiip is one of seven yachts currently being refitted at the Dutch yard over the winter period.
Improvements scheduled to take place on Spiip includes service work and various electric and electronics upgrades.
Delivered in 2000, Spiip features an interior design by Stirling & Co and can accommodate a total of six people with five crew members. She has a top speed of 11 knots, with power coming from a 415.0hp MTU 6R183TE72 diesel engine.
