148' HYS Yachts Custom Conversion Project
1992 US$ 6,500,000

M/Y Lucas: Commercial to Luxury Conversion

US $6.5 Million

For an estimated total completion of entire custom conversion cost of only US $6.5m*, this roomy, immaculately maintained, 148-foot former Japanese government fisheries vessel – recently purchased by HYS Yachts, Philippines – provides the perfect foundation for the luxury yacht of your dreams. Built and maintianed to Japanese Military spec to date. This vessel has been kept to best operationing condition. Main engine rebuilt to zero hours this year. The engineroom alone has more value than the entire cost of vessel refit to yacht standards. This is a machine that can go where you want as long as you wish. HYS track record in refit projects gives you the best for less.

While final conversion options are only limited by your imagination, a proposed conversion profile and full General Arrangement layout for the Lucas – crafted by HYS Naval Architect Simon Jupe and included in this listings photo gallery – illustrates just one or many possibilities.

HYS Yachts (Philippines) - recently featured in two major Boat International articles (May 2012 issue) - has become widely recognized as the pre-eminent masters of the highly specialized commercial to luxury yacht conversion niche.
