Built originally as MTB by Westermsen A/S (Norway) in 1960 in double diagonal mahogany hull with s/steel & alu. fastenings. Iroko sacrificial keel (bottom plank).
Converted in 1991/92 to present use as Pleasure Yacht under supervision in Swansea Dockyard. Inspected by Bureau Veritas. Renewed superstructure & all deck in aluminium & teak 5/8" laid on 3-layer marine ply. Under conversion, 7 bulkheads [of which 5 water-tight] have been retained.
Complete refit 2008/09 including a general re-styling of interior & lower deck accommodation, as well as the addition of a 6 ft contemporary ‘superyacht-style’ transom. All interior and core-systems were stripped and renewed or refurbished, including tanks, pipe-work, electrics, domestic outfit & interior woodwork. Chain locker stripped, cleaned, painted and reinforced. Superstructure stripped & re-painted in Stoppani paint system. Flybridge deck extended to allow for easier layout of tender deck & crane as well as additional guest seating & dining. Also including a re-styled windshield and railings for compliance to Commercial Coding and a new, re-styled flybridge access via light-twist staircase.
An amazing opportunity to acquire an extremely sturdy military vessel converted to a solid, safe private yacht and recently refitted / restyled to a more contemporary outfit & design easier found on board high-spec superyachts. All machinery fully operational. Vessel offered on an ‘as is, where is’ basis as a project [enabling final outfit to custom specification] or fully completed with an additional €100-150K indicative budget overall as currently estimated by existing project manager.
