Dutch shipyard, Feadship has confirmed that 72-metre (236.22-foot) charter yacht Utopia has returned home to the Netherlands for a third refit and will be delivered back to her owners at the end of July 2018.
In a recent release about Utopia’s refit, Feadship commented, “Her owners fully recognise the exceptional added value of having a Feadship refitted by the craftsmen and engineers who know her best.”
Utopia made global headlines at the time of her launch in 2004, and has since undergone refit projects in 2008/2009 and 2013.
Feadship said, “These regular upgrades reflect the owners’ desire to ensure Utopia remains in peak state and the fact that – as one of the most successful charter yachts in the global fleet – she is almost constantly in use.
“The most important aspects of this latest refit are an all-new paint job for the superstructure, activities in relation to the special 15-year survey from Lloyd’s, various technical modifications in the engine room and a spruce-up for the interior.”
The yacht builder’s 97-metre (318.24-foot) yacht Faith also recently returned home for refit last winter for premium warranty service activities and modifications that were based on the owner’s experiences during the previous summer. As a result, she now has a second wellness area in the bridge deck, along with walnut-varnished window boxes on the main and bridge deck.
