Palma Refit Season

Refit season in Palma

Yes, the refit season has started in Palma!

Autumn has officially made its entrance and we are looking back on a beautiful summer. It was a warm and busy summer. But no time to sit still, because refit season has started!
Yachts are our passion, we love to take care of them. That’s why we do what we do on a daily basis: repairing, creating, cleaning, painting, …making sure your precious yacht stays as good as new.

ENDLESS CREATIVE POSSIBILITIES

Refitting a boat is like bringing a classic car back to it’s former glory but in a boats case you often have many more options on which to decide. New paint job, new decks, new sails, new interior, new engines….the list is endless and if you have decided you want to invest the money then it can be a lot of fun doing the work.

A NEW LEASE OF LIFE

It’s pretty much full on for us until July 2019 with boat after boat booked in. These projects are always extremely rewarding as we all enjoy seeing boats be given a new lease of life. I always involve our clients as much as possible during the process as seeing their boat improve step by step can be as enjoyable as seeing the finished product.

REFIT PROJECT 17m WALLY TENDER

We are just coming to the end of refitting a 17m Wally tender where the engines have been removed completely rebuilt and reinstalled, the engine room repainted and refitted, the whole boat has been re-wired, two new heads and showers, a brand new engine bay soft hatch which will allow for easier access to the engines for service and a new navigation and AV system.

“For me the feeling of seeing the finished product when everything has been cleaned to perfection and put back in it’s proper place is unbeatable!”

— Andrew Fairbrass, CEO Berthon Spain
