Superyacht Seawolf completes refit at Atollvic
by Tom Isitt
Explorer yacht Seawolf has just completed a four-month refit at the Atollvic shipyard in Vigo, northern Spain, and is set for another five years cruising the world's oceans.
Originally built by Holland’s J&K Smit yard in 1957 as an ocean-going tug, Seawolf was converted to a superyacht by Astilleros de Palma in Mallorca from 1998 to 2004 and further upgraded and converted in 2008 and 2010.
An ice strengthened hull and superior seakeeping qualities combine to produce a versatile go-anywhere luxury yacht compliant with the most recent safety and technological standards – she is ABS classed and MCA compliant.
With accommodation for 13 guests in five well appointed cabins, as well as the privacy of a separate owners' deck with a full beam cabin, office/study and pantry, Seawolf is as much at home in the Western Mediterranean as the Southern Ocean.
Captain Drag Richards said: 'We recently undertook a Five Year Special Survey and a hull paint at Atollvic yard in Vigo. I could not be happier with the service, quality and efficiency by Atollvic. Most pleasing for all involved was the great attitude from all involved across the board which in turn made for a great yard period and a very pleasing end result for Seawolf.'
