World renowned Dutch shipyard Feadship, has announced that in the first half of 2017 they have successfully completed the refits of four classic, and well-known Feadship superyachts. The 164 foot Aurora, 132 foot Cipitouba, 225 foot Drizzle and the 156 foot Tatasu, have all undergone major and astounding makeovers.
Launched in 1992, Aurora’s latest refit at the Feadship yard in Makkum lasted eight months and she was handed back to her owners at the end of May, though specific details of the refit are scarce.
A little more is known about the work that was done to the Cipitouba. Originally launched as Sea Flower in 2002, key refits include: new exhaust gas filters (HUG) as well as a completely new exhaust system. The vessel has been updated with a new electrical power management system with main switchboard and a state of the art alarm and monitoring system. The interior was also given a complete makeover, and she now sports a refreshed main deck saloon, dining room and bridge deck lounge. New marble flooring is now found in the guest bathrooms, as well as an updated IT/AV system and the security system now includes new CCTV systems throughout. Cipitouba was delivered to her owners in early June.
When she was firs built in 2012, Drizzle was delivered as a 220 foot yacht. As part of her refit, she has been lengthened, and is now 225 feet long. She also now sports an extended swimming platform that has been increased by nearly five feet. The major overhaul also includes the addition of new stainless steel railings and a complete new paint job and modifications to various interior areas in the yacht. There is also a sundeck that has been fitted with gym equipment.
Tatasu, launched in 1994, has had an extensive makeover that includes an entire interior refit with a whole new aft deck. The technical upgrades on board the vessel include an entirely new engine room, power plants and vessels as well as a new control room and a fresh coat of paint.
