68-metre (223-foot) motor yacht Archimedes will be returning to her home yard as she books in for a three-month Feadship refit.
Following an “epic” expedition of the Arctic, and a visit to Yachting Pages' home city of Bristol, the yacht arrived at the Dutch yard late last month.
Since her launch in 2008, Archimedes has visited more than 80 countries and clocked up over 210,000 nautical miles.
Archimedes will receive various upgrades and maintenance works including replacement of teak on the stern platform and the replacement of all onboard AV facilities.
Feadship has also revealed the engine supports, gangway, tender lift and stern platform door will go under major maintenance works. The generator, heating and air conditioning and watermaker will all be upgraded and various parts of the superstructure will be repainted.
The upholstery of the furniture and beds will be replaced, while the floor of the sundeck saloon will be repainted and the crew mess rebuilt.
Captain of Archimedes, Christopher Walsh, said it was “a genuine pleasure” to book the yacht into her home yard for the refit.
“This yacht has taken the owner and the crew to all areas of the world in complete safety and comfort. Having the refit activities carried out at Feadship ensures that she will continue to operate in the premium condition that only a Feadship can offer,” he added.
