- Replacement of all deck glasses

- All tank treatments
Kerem Baser, managing director of KRM Yacht Refit & Repair, said, “This project will be one of the most exciting projects our company has completed so far due to the planned changes and renovations. We believe that she [Miami Blues] will be reborn as ‘M/Y Wolfoz’ after 12 months. Beside that she will be very good example and proof of how far we can go with superyacht refit both on quality and redesign.
“Another important point is that all design and engineering works will be carried out by our in-house engineers and architects, and 80% of the works will be completed by our in-house teams (including full interior) at our fully equipped workshops. This will also provide proof of our capacity and work power on a superyacht refit.
“As a leading superyacht refit facility in one of the best global locations here in Turkey, we are always willing to reach higher and go further ‘when she needs care’.”
