Superyacht First Draw refitted by Christensen
by Raphael Montigneaux
Christensen Shipyards have recently completed an extensive refit on the 36.6 metre motor yacht First Draw, previously known as Cacique.
Built in composite in 1995 to an in-house design, First Draw was brought completely up to date in the refit which saw her teak decks replaced, furniture and tenders renewed, sundeck refurbished with a new bar and spa pool, and a new Awlgrip paint job.
The interior was completely redecorated in a contemporary style created in collaboration with Varo Interior Design. With a slight change in layout the yacht now accommodates nine guests in four cabins: a VIP on the main deck with a larger bathroom, a full-beam master suite on the lower deck, a triple cabin with queen-sized and single berths, and a twin cabin.
Twin Caterpillar engines were installed to replace the former twin Deutz-MWM ones and all electronics, navigation systems and audio/video equipment were replaced.
Currently berthed in Vancouver, WA, United States, First Draw is as good as new and once again ready to cruise the world.
