The 32m superyacht Lunar Mist is almost ready for launching following a 12-month refit at Solent Refit in Southampton, UK. Lunar Mist arrived at Solent Refit following structural work carried out in Palma.
The Palma work had caused serious problems and almost resulted in the owner, Martyn Meade of investment company Hadleigh Partners, giving up on her salvage. Solent Refit's project manager, Phil Millard, worked closely with the owner to resolve the structural issues and develop a programme for a major refit to bring the yacht back to her original pristine condition.
Lunar Mist was designed by Bill Tripp and built by Windship Trident in the United States, Lunar Mist's refit included engineering and internal work, rig overhaul and a high-quality hull respray.
After a series of sail trials in the Solent, the Lunar Mist will be signed off and the yacht will start her new world cruising programme.
