Berthon Spain were delighted to undertake a mini-refit of a sailing yacht, this time a Gunfleet 58. Our brief was to bring the boat back to showroom condition.
The owner of this boat by his own admission is a perfectionist so he had found his perfect match with Berthon Spain.
The owner had a lot of interesting ideas on how to improve the boat so we made up a lot of CAD drawings for him and were then able to realise his dreams by making and fitting all of the things he asked of us.
The Harken winches and Lewmar windlass had all seen a lot of sea time and so were given a thoroughly detailed service and in some cases rebuilt. We also serviced the Volvo engine and Onan generator, two regular brands that we work on.
The interior panels on this yacht had become tired and were letting down the look of the boat. After talking it through with the owner we went about removing all the panels and remaking them like new.
Berthon Spain did all the carpentry work in house and Revival Yachts re-covered the panels before we refitted them.
What makes a good refit…? An owner with a dream, a good contractor and a man obsessed with details running the show!
We had a five-page complex job list from the owner which required coordination between our team and various subcontractors.
One of the more interesting jobs was removing the hydraulic centre board to service all the associated equipment, at 1.8m this is no small feat!
The owner hadn’t seen his yacht for a few months. When we handed it back, it had been completely transformed. Seeing his surprised and happy reaction, put a smile on our faces!
The owner and his family have been regularly using the boat since early March and are now in the safe hands of Berthon Spains guardiennage team.
