Pictured: Wisp restored to "perfect condition" following Royal Huisman refit

17 May 2021• Written by Miranda Blazeby

New images show the 48 metre sailing yacht Wisp has been returned to "perfect" condition following extensive 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 and has now been successfully redelivered to its owner. The work was overseen by MCM Newport and 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: “Following this refit-project by the Huisfit team, Wisp is again ‘perfect’ and ‘as new’. The full scope of work was executed – in spite of Covid-19 restrictions – as planned and delivered within the agreed budget. In summary, a well-prepared and executed refit so the owner can enjoy being onboard again soon."
