48m sailing yacht Wisp relaunched at Royal Huisman

29 January 2021

The 48 metre sailing yacht Wisp has been relaunched after undergoing maintenance work at her home yard Royal Huisman.

The yacht, which was first launched in 2014, arrived at the Dutch yard’s Huisfit facility in October 2020 for scheduled maintenance work. The work was overseen by MCM Newport and the yacht’s captain Richard Humphries.

The list of works included a new paint job, antifouling, exterior varnish and interior paintwork and realignment of the propulsion line.

Maintenance work was also undertaken on the sail handling systems and several advanced preparations were made ahead of Wisp’s upcoming 10 year Lloyd’s survey.

Speaking about the work, MCM Newport’s Nigel Ingram said: “The full scope of the work was executed – in spite of Covid-19 restrictions – as planned and delivered within the agreed budget.”
