Arman, a newly established Belgian marine design studio, presents its new 90 meter superyacht concept, also known under the codename “Dune 90”. Arman Fissette, a founder of the studio and a creator of the unique Arman 90m Explorer motor yacht concept ‘Dune 90’, describes the process that transform his extraordinary ideas into this visually stimulating design.

Arman 90m Explorer yacht concept

Obtaining the right balance between openness and privacy on a superyacht is often a delicate part of the design process and the outcome seems to be successful in relatively few cases. The outdoor areas are often too exposed to dockside onlookers or passing yachts while the interior is generally disconnected from the outside environment. Considering that owning a superyacht is as much about the onboard experience as the privilege of being surrounded by the most beautiful beachfronts in the world, one can understand that enhancing the outside views and light ingress should be one of the major focal points for a yacht designer.

The goal for Arman 90m Explorer yacht concept was to conceive an innovative and aesthetically pleasing verandah concept that would take into account the effects of radiant heating by the sun. The idea revolved around the application of a modular and multifunctional glass facade system, featuring both reduced weight and complexity as well as surprising aesthetics and light ingress. In terms of structure, inspiration was found in geodesic domes and airport terminals. However, for this rationale to be applicable on a superyacht ,to keep cost and build complexity in check the overall geometry would need to be simplified, ideally made up of large flat surfaces.

For this particular aspect of the design, the clean and taut surfaces of swerving dunes proved to be a promising reference, as they seemed the natural way of combining flat surfacing with a sense of dynamism and visual tension. The end result is a design style fittingly called “duning”, a combination of “faceting” (that places the emphasis on the surface) and “edging” (where the attention is drawn on the edges resulting from surface intersections). The edges draw the viewer’s eye and lead it across the design, while the flat surfaces between those edges are simple and clean enough to remain in the background and give center stage to the edges. Where they change direction though, the curvature becomes a hotspot for light reflection. This emphasizes certain areas of the design and gives it a certain softness that contrasts beautifully with the predominant starkness of the design.

Also the overall composition of the Arman “Dune 90” superyacht was challenged, and the decision was made to visually make a distinct break-up between hull and superstructure, while at the same time these two parts as a whole seem to have been cut out of a single volume. For the imaginative, the idea of a mollusk shell might come to  mind, being carried by its possessor.

With this as a building ground, the next part of the design – the glass facade – could be started. Inspiration here was found in the intricately designed patterns present in Arabesque mosaics and window screens, which successfully combine light ingress with privacy and a high level of visual detailing.

The facade is made up of an array of triangular glass panels that fit on top of a triangular structure. The latter is aligned with the yacht’s structural frames and bulkheads to safeguard an optimal distribution of forces. This keeps the design and building process simple and out of the realm of the experimental.

The tinted glass panel is a three panel composite, coated on both sides with an opaque titanium graphic and supported by a structural panel that holds a third graphic. The superposition of these three graphics leads to a moiré-effect that produces different effects depending on the distance, viewing angle and whether the surface is front- or backlit. The combination of both layered glass and the titanium coatings on the other hand, is an effective means of keeping the heat out while precious light is allowed in.

The end result is a distinctively new Arman 90m yacht design that combines privacy  with openness, European post-modernity with North African craftsmanship and true-tested engineering orthodoxy with design prowess.

While the average size of superyachts leaving the yards these days was something unseen only a few years ago, the typical “wedding cake” stacking style of these floating palaces is something we’ve unfortunately been seeing for many decades now. Only a handful of designs really have been able to break out of that straightjacket.

Over the years, the market seems to have been conditioned by some sort of “same but bigger” mantra, as this seemed to warrant the most conspicuous yacht in the bay. However, with a new generation of yacht designers entering the scene, this reality is changing. Sheer size isn’t a guarantee for attention anymore, design is. And that’s what a one-of project like a superyacht deserves: a one-of-a-kind and appropriated design.

To celebrate the creation of his own design studio “ARMAN”, former BMW designer and marine envisioneer Arman Fissette created an innovative and visionary design style with a more monolithic approach to superyacht design. The result is a truly charismatic yacht, Arman 90m Explorer yacht taking inspiration from stealth frigates and swerving dunes, boasting a crispness and leanness that is rare for a yacht of this size.

With 90 meter bow to stern, The DUNE 90 superyacht is a true explorer yacht, equipped for any type of trip, be it on water, land or in the air, in both high-latitude or low-latitude cruising grounds. There’s a helicopter hangar aboard, together with berths for a submarine, an amphibious aircraft, three large tenders, six waverunners and a garage containing four off-road vehicles. While 10 Guest cabins and an owner’s cabin provide enough space to sleep 22, there’s an additional 28 crew aboard to run the yacht and cater to the needs of those aboard.

The upper decks are covered by a large glass atrium with arabesque-type light filters to retain a sense of privacy while natural light is allowed in and heat is kept out.

The swimming pool on the foredeck is partially overhung by the owner’s salon which features a large glass facade, called the” visor”. This feature clearly marks the “Dune 90” superyacht’s inclination towards exploration, as if it were looking out for new things on the horizon.

The team behind this yacht is currently designing a 75 meter yacht concept and going through a yard selection process for both projects.

A 90-meter yacht concept combining intimacy, sportiness and a link with the sea

90 meter yacht tips over

Tommaso Spadolini unveils a new concept of a 90 m long super yacht, designed in close collaboration with the owner. Among the requests, a lot of privacy for the owners, a strong link with the sea and sporty lines.

Chloé Torterat

Three important characteristics

Tommaso Spadolini has unveiled the first details of a new design for a 90-meter-long sport yacht with a top speed of 20 knots. This project required close collaboration with the client to create the exterior and interior design. The brief, from the very first sketches, was to create lines that exude speed . The main deck is emphasized by strong convex lines on the owner's and upper decks. The straight lines required for the bulwarks and superstructure are concealed by flowing curves, which culminate amidships before descending to the generous beach club.

The specification included two other key features:

  • The design of the yacht should give the clients a feeling of close contact with the sea, despite its 90 m length
  • The owner must have a high degree of privacy from guests and crew

Thus, the emphasis was placed on the very large beach club, but also on the internal configuration of the boat to create maximum privacy for the owner.

A 365 m2 beach club on two decks

The beach club is located on the lower and main decks. It includes a 150m2 lounge with two tilting balconies. In addition to the gym and a bar, there is also a sauna and a massage and relaxation area. The bathing platform itself measures 65 m2, and the overhanging main cockpit offers an additional 150 m2 of space, bathed in natural light.

This 365 m2 beach club includes a 7 x 3 m clear-walled infinity pool. Suspended above the bathing platform, it offers swimmers an unlimited view of the horizon. The connection to the water is further enhanced by the balconies outside the sliding doors of the upper lounge.

A very large private space for the owner

To accentuate the concept of privacy, Tommaso Spadolini has created a dedicated owner's deck with access from the stairs and elevator. On this dedicated deck, the cabin offers a large owner's bed with a 270° view. There are also dedicated bathrooms for each member of the couple, with their own bathtub, dressing rooms, a wine cellar, a smoking room with humidifier and an intimate sitting area. An outdoor sitting area with a pool completes the amenities.

The lobby can be compartmentalized with specially insulated doors to cut off access to the owner's area and provide soundproofing. A staircase connecting the main deck to the sundeck is accessible from the outside, without having to pass through the guest areas. Even the small owner's pantry can be closed off with two doors.

Large storage facilities for toys and tenders

By flaring the bow and introducing a side deck forward on the upper deck, additional volume has been created on the main deck below. Here, there are six large guest cabins including two VIPs. Finally, a huge toy garage provides storage for a jet tender and several jet skis. The main dinghy garage can accommodate a 9 m boat.

With a helipad on the foredeck and features such as a nine-seat cinema and a 200 m2 sundeck with swimming pool, this yacht offers all the amenities for a wealthy owner or charter agency.

Oceanco’s new 90m/295ft dreamboat has been successfully delivered to her owners

90 meter yacht tips over

Oceanco’s 90-meter motor yacht DreAMBoat is exactly what the name implies—the Owner’s dream yacht. The Owner stepped into the project at precisely the right time. With hull and superstructure already completed, he was able to save build and engineering time and still make the yacht his own. Oceanco began the yacht for a future client interested in the Oceanco pedigree and inherent ability to build an innovative yacht combined with the novelty of a first-time collaboration between two of the most renowned yacht designers in the superyacht world— Espen Øino International for the exterior and Terence Disdale Design for the interior.

The Owner was taken with the classic elegant and engaging exterior lines that would sustain a timeless appeal and found that the interior layout was perfectly suited to his intended use. The generous overhangs from the superstructure and cutouts in the bulwarks lend a traditional yet strong appearance. DreAMBoat boasts a full carbon canopy mast house and mast, which forms an integral part of the overall design.

“At the outset the exterior design was intended to be understated and timeless,” says exterior designer Espen Øino, “working closely with Oceanco all the primary surfaces and details were created keeping this in mind. The result is one I think we all can identify with. At the launch she came out of the facilities looking strong and proud with a lot of presence. The exterior deck areas flow seamlessly into the interior spaces maintaining continuity and consistency. The external decks offer a variety of living spaces and experiences with the sun deck probably being the biggest in its class with ample space for entertainment and lounging both in the shade and in the sun. The fixed and loose furniture as well as the upholstery and cushions all provide an inviting and harmonious ensemble which complement the external design of the yacht very well.”

At 2950GT, the volume allows for luxurious accommodation for up to 23 guests and a well-thought-out crew’s quarters for a maximum of 33 crewmembers. The design emphasis is on large windows that flood the interior with daylight and offer unspoiled views from the inside out. Outside spaces feature a large swimming pool 6m long X 3.1m wide X 1.44m deep on the main aft deck; an enormous partially enclosed sundeck; an area where the Owner and his family will most spend their time with Jacuzzi and copious options for seating/ entertaining with an outdoor open cinema. There is also a private jacuzzi on the Owner’s deck, a spa on the bridge deck aft with a custom-built hydro/massage bath and a large selection of water toys including a custom-built dive board. DreAMBoat has been built in harmony to accommodate family life.

Terence Disdale has created an interior that incorporates bespoke surfaces, natural wood, limestone floors, semi-precious stone vanities, parchment, leather and mother of pearl. The effect is elegant without being overdone.

“Following our successful collaboration with Oceanco designing the interior of Sunrays we were asked to become involved with DreAMBoat, says Terence Disdale of Terence Disdale Design. “The layout was construed along with my good friend Espen, who is responsible for the naval architecture and exterior design. Our interior design features many exotic finishes creating an harmonious and calm environment including surprise details to entertain the eye.” Disdale adds, “We always strive to avoid the “big wow” factor that soon becomes boring. We believe that DreAMBoat with her quietly sophisticated interior is indeed a future classic.”

Dan Jackson, the Owner’s representative remarked: “From the first time the Owner saw the boat, still in pink faring compound in the outfitting facility and met all involved in the project, he knew that the combination of Espen’s timeless exterior, Terence Disdale’s elegant and calming interior and Oceanco’s ability to deliver the boat on time and to the quality he required, was just right for him. So, after some minor enhancements made to suit him and his family, we got right into it and here we are, 18 months later, proud to be delivering him his DreAMBoat”.

The Owner is looking forward to a summer season of cruising with family—his children and grandchildren— as well as with friends. The large saloons, multiple dining areas, along with intimate lounging settings offer myriad possibilities for large and small groups to congregate making DreAMBoat ideal for a multigenerational group. A large variety of toys, tenders and audio/video appliances appeal to all ages.

DreAMBoat is an example of proven reliable technology, combined with state- of-the- art AV/IT infrastructure, including a complex IP ship’s computer operating system. She has been designed for efficiency on many fronts such as the installation of a heat recovery system for potable water. Moreover, she has achieved the ECO-IHM (inventory of hazardous materials) notation. This notation demonstrates an overall commitment to operating the vessel on an environmentally sound basis beyond statutory compliance.

“Delivering DreAMBoat is the ultimate milestone in Oceanco’s ethos of creating the Owners Perfect Yacht” says Roderick Gort, Project Director at Oceanco.

90m Voyager completes three year conversion

The 90 metre explorer Voyager has finally completed its conversion after three years in construction.

Previously known as Danah Voyager , the yacht arrived at Dania Cut, Florida in April 2016 to begin a three year conversion from a supply ship into an explorer superyacht. She now ranks as the largest superyacht conversion ever in the USA.

Originally built by US yard Swiftships and launched in 1997 as Candy Trader, her initial LOA was 63 metres when she first operated as a supply ship for commercial works. She was re-named HOS Trader in July 2003, when she was used as an offshore supply ship.

The first part of her conversion began in January 2015. This work included a redesign of her superstructure and lengthening of her hull, as well as a 12.12 metre mid-body extension. She now measures 91.4 metres. Other major steel work was also completed, when a larger bathing platform and helipad were added to the vessel. The work was undertaken by Gulf Islands Shipyards in Houma, Louisiana.

The hull of  Voyager  was then shipped to Fort Lauderdale, where fitting out was completed at Dania Cut. This included repowering and the installation of new generators.

The interiors were believed to be split between two separate contractors, with one working on the guest cabins and another dedicated to the crew quarters. The five-deck explorer has the capacity to house up to 70 crew.

Other key features include multiple galleys, pantries and media rooms, as well as a deep dive centre — one of the primary purposes of this explorer yacht.

At the bridge, a customised console designed by VMAG and manufactured by Radio Zeeland is fitted with touch screen technology, while multiple screens have glass insert panels, not just for improved aesthetics, but to enhance viewing angles and display readability. There is also a glass-touch switch that is integrated to several external components, such as tracking, radar, security cameras, fuel usage, bilge, for additional monitoring and control.

The conversion was project managed by Voyager Maritime Alliance Group (VMAG) - the largest project in their 30-year history.  Kirilloff  and Associates was involved in the concept stages of the project.  Rafael Ochoa  provided the exterior styling in consultation with the owners and Kirilloff.

David Leone, President of VMAG said, "Very little was left untouched throughout the vessel, so it was crucial to manage each section of the refit, in the right order, to avoid any delays and additional costs. With our team of technical engineers, I knew we could accomplish this particularly complex project

"I am particularly proud to create the first ever entire superyacht vessel integration" he added. "This means that anywhere on the vessel there are access points that can monitor any type of activity, i.e. navigation, security, radar, engines, generators, power distribution, fuel, water etc., to enable the captain to have complete control of the vessel, whether he is at the helm, in the sun lounge or in his cabin."

Do You Need A Crew For Yachts? Helpful Tips (With 6 Examples)

' src=

Whether or not you need a crew for a yacht depends on several factors.

In this article, we will help you figure out exactly what you need.

Table of Contents

Here’s When You Need a Yacht Crew:

With the appropriate boat licenses, you can typically operate a boat up to 75 feet without a crew. However, most yachts need crew for docking, launching, caring for guests, and watching for danger or other boats. Without a crew, an autopilot feature may be crucial to help with keeping you on course.

A crew can help because someone must always be on watch to look for nearby vessels or other dangerous situations, as well as docking

Here’s everything you need to know about when you will need a yacht crew:

What Exactly do you Need a Yacht Crew for?

90 meter yacht tips over

Yacht crews do a lot of things to help maintain the boat and keep it running smoothly.

Some of these duties include:

  • Launching and docking the boat
  • Accounting or managing the operating expenses
  • Cooking, bartending, or other types of services for guests
  • Engineering and/or regular maintenance for onboard appliances and ship mechanics
  • Piloting and driving the boat
  • Cleaning the interior and general housekeeping duties
  • Supervising guests and other crew members on board

Here’s a list we made with 10 typical tasks performed by the crew on a yacht . It’s a great read if you are considering whether you will need a crew or not!

Depending on your boat and your experience, you might not need all of those duties to be done. For example, superyachts might need a cook, while sportfishing yachts might not (even if they have a grill).

Some boaters prefer to do the piloting and engineering independently, while others want to lounge around and enjoy the weather.

Make sure you analyze your reasoning for having a boat before you hire people you might not need to employ.

Do you consider boating to be a social activity? Or do you prefer to boat alone, where you can enjoy the peace that can only be found on the water?

If you’re in the latter group, you may have pondered over one or more of these questions before:

  • Can I pilot this boat on my own?
  • Do I need a crew?
  • Why do I need a crew?

What is the Biggest Boat I can get Without Having to Hire a Professional Crew?

It really does depend on your experience with a recreational boat and how comfortable you are on your boat.

For avid and experienced boaters, anywhere from a 30’ to a 74’ sportfishing boat is a decent size that they can handle independently.

There are many things to consider when figuring out what boat to buy , especially if you plan on operating the watercraft on your own.

Remember that you’ll probably need help (even if it’s just your family and/or friends) who can help you cast off the lines and tie up when you need to dock.

Also, keep in mind that you’ll need an autopilot if you plan on using a powerboat on your own. Here’s everything you need to know about which yachts have autopilots.

Yes, many people can handle these tasks on their own, but they also have the help of electronic charting and steering, pod drives, and bow thrusters, which can help hold the boat’s position while you casually tie off.

Which Licenses Do I Need to Operate a Yacht Without a Crew?

There are several different licenses you need to know about when we are talking yachts.

Especially if you are bringing guests (if they are paying for the trip).

For more information, here is everything you need to know about boat license types .

Does Every Motor Yacht Need to Have a Crew?

When it comes to boating, there are many different types of people drawn to this recreational activity.

Some want to race, others fish, while others want to cruise around the harbor while catching some rays. In addition to that, some want to spend that time with friends and family, while some want to enjoy some peace while out on the water.

There is nothing wrong with being a “do-it-yourself” type of boater, whether you’re into sailing yachts or motor yachts. However, there are plenty of reasons why boating with a crew can come in handy.

Safety & Emergency Help:

Having a crew is safer.

It is always safer to go out on the water with other people. In emergencies, when something unexpected happens, or even if you need a hand with something, it is safer to have other passengers and crew members there for you to count on.

When you are out on the water with a limited crew or yourself, you have to be extra careful since there isn’t anyone there who can rescue you or help you get out of a tough situation.

Wearing a life jacket regularly all by yourself can get cumbersome, after all.

Because of that, short-handed boatmen often use the “Lifesling,” which is a horseshoe-shaped collar secured to a victim to help get them back on board.

Some offshore sailors tow a long line behind the vessel for a crewmember to grab if they fall overboard.

Guests & Cleanup Help:

If your yacht is commercial or hosts guests, operating it is like owning a small hotel.

Crews are a  must when you have guests onboard, as you will not be able to pilot the yacht, dock, launch, clean, cook, serve, and entertain guests.

Furthermore, you shouldn’t have to!

Guest experiences are made better when you have all hands on deck to help keep things running smoothly and safely. Taking on that burden alone is not necessary.

Family Yacht or Single Captain:

Some families like to own their own yacht and don’t care about crews or getting help out on the water.

Families of four or five could potentially crew the yacht themselves!

Therefore, if your ship is for personal and private use and you don’t want to hire a crew, make sure you bring enough people with you to help you take care of the ship’s requirements.

If you are a single sailor, however, and you captain, dock, launch, and maintain the ship yourself, make sure that you have open radio communications if you ever need help and have to call the coast guard.

What Do I Need to Own and Sail a Yacht?

If you choose to set sail on your own, it is important to have the right disaster and spare equipment on board in case of emergency.

A common checklist of everything you need to do, from trailering to getting underway to cleaning the boat, can be handy in emergencies.

After all, it can be difficult to think of what to do when your adrenaline is through the roof.

Let’s go over some basic emergency equipment for your boat as well as some handy spare parts you should keep close at hand:

  • PFD’s, horn, fire extinguisher, and other appropriate safety equipment
  • Floatation devices and emergency raft
  • VHF radio, a cell phone, or a satellite phone
  • A pair of binoculars
  • Maps and charts
  • Two to four fenders
  • Some extra dock and anchor lines
  • An extra plug for your hull drain
  • An extra set of keys
  • A spare bearing set and tire for your trailer
  • Some engine oil (just in case)
  • A basic tool kit (look and make sure that the tools match the hardware on your boat)
  • A couple of flashlights
  • Duct tape (which will always come in handy)
  • Brush for your boat
  • A trailer coupler lock
  • Your boat cover
  • Some sunscreen and a hat (and other skin protection)
  • Spare alternator belt
  • Spark plugs
  • An extra set of bearing and hubs
  • Extra prop and hardware
  • Another water pump kit
  • Spare flags for emergencies

What Training do Crewmembers need to Operate a Big Yacht?

90 meter yacht tips over

If you decide to get a crew, each member of your crew must have different qualifications, based on their role on the boat.

For professional crew members, two of the bigger training certificates are:

  • STCW Basic Safety Training – This should be required of your entire crew to work on a charter yacht or a commercial yacht. It is not required for private boats, but it is highly desirable and wouldn’t hurt to have on hand.
  • ENG1 Seafarer Medical Certificate – This is a medical examination required to prove whether or not you are fit for working on the water. An MCA-approved doctor must issue this.

Each Crewmember Must Have the Following (by job description):

  • MCA Efficient Deckhand training (EDH)
  • Deck/Yacht training
  • VHF radio training
  • RYA Radar training and the RYA competent crew training
  • MCA Proficiency in designated security duties (PDSD)
  • RYA Powerboat (at least level 2) and the RYA Tender Operator
  • General GRP and carpentry repairs
  • An interior crew-training course or courses, such as the PYA GUEST Program
  • STCW Proficiency (Medical First Aid) and the STCW Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats
  • VHF Radio Short Range Certificate (GMDSS/DSC)
  • RYA Powerboat (at least level 2)
  • PWC Personal Watercraft Proficiency
  • MCA Proficiency in Designated Security Duties (PDSD) and the MCA Human Element, Leadership and Management (HELM) at Operational Level
  • Deck / Yacht Rating
  • AEC Approved Engine Course
  • MEOL Marine Engine Operator License
  • Marine Diesel Training and Experience
  • Auxiliary Equipment & Basic Ship Construction
  • MCA Sea Survival for Yachtsman
  • Advanced Fire Fighting
  • STCW Proficiency in Medical First Aid
  • Chief Engineer Statutory & Operational Requirement
  • Applied Marine Engineering

Final Thoughts:

Having a crew aboard your vessel will help you ensure that you have a fun, leisurely cruise or voyage.

An experienced crew can help ease your tensions and worries. A crew can help alleviate the chaos and energy that might come with frantically doing things on your own.

There are many yachts out on the water, which is operated “short-handed.”

This means that it is being operated on less than the usual number of crew members that would typically be used.

In the past, it was common practice that 70-foot boats had dedicated captains and crew members (at least one). These days, 80-foot boats are being crewed by husband-wife teams.

If you choose to go this route, make sure to:

  • Choose the right yacht for you (the right size and type)
  • Outfit the yacht for extra amenities, balanced with simplicity (don’t make things overcomplicated)
  • Prep yourselves by talking through scenarios beforehand, planning, and taking your time.
  • Consider anchoring via remote controller for the power windlass.
  • Have the appropriate emergency gear on board.

Being a short-handed boater can seem intimidating, but it can be a wonderful adventure as well.

Tripp 90 // YYACHTS

The 27m tripp 90 will be launched in november 2020 with an andrew winch interior design at yyachts shipyard in northern germany..

The young shipyard under the ownership of Michael Schmidt (founder of Hanse Yachts), launched several yachts like the Y7 BELLA (also designed by Bill Tripp ) and the Brenta 80 DC COOL BREEZE for example. Moreover, the research sailing vessel EUGEN SEIBOLD .

The Tripp 90 that belongs to the custom work division of the German shipyard features a Winch interior and will be the largest yacht to date by YYachts. The American owner wants to sail regattas and to cruise worldwide with the carbon-fiber boat that weighs under 50 tons with 20-ton ballast. It is the third time of collaboration between Tripp and the London-based studio Andrew Winch after the sailing yachts SHAMAN and ALITHIA .

Tripp 90 YYachts 27m Sailing Yacht

There are no interior renderings yet, but the shipyard describes the style as follows:

“The spacious interior is minimalistic with an open layout and plenty of natural light. Stylistic inspirations from the east coast of the USA and Scandinavian influences from the middle of the last century in combination with the use of soft leather and light oak wood give the ambiance a restrained elegance.”

The deck salon of the Tripp 90 has been created to look around the sea with an abundance of natural light.

Famed Sailing Yacht Athena Wraps Up Refit

  • By Diane M. Byrne
  • Updated: March 14, 2012

Photo: Ivor Wilkins

One of the world’s largest sailing yachts just made history as being the largest megayacht ever to undergo a refit in New Zealand. Athena, the Royal Huisman launch coming in at 295 feet LOA (90 meters), wrapped up a nine-month stay at Orams Marine Services .

If you’re not familiar with Auckland-based Orams Marine Services, it’s been refitting a variety of yachts since 1947. It’s also been part of Orams Marine Village, a purpose-built, full-service marine facility, in 2004. Orams Marine Services has refitted several well-known sailing yachts from Perini Navi and Alloy Yachts, in addition to high-profile motoryachts from Feadship, among other notable builders. Orams Marine Services landed the work for the three-masted, nearly eight-year-old Athena because of its relationship with the owner, having serviced two of his previous megayachts.

But because of Athena’_s size, the marina needed a refit itself. This included installation of new pontoons and the replacement of wooden piles with steel ones, filled with sand. Work was finished by the time _Athena arrived in February of last year. Still, though, she needed to remain in the water for a good deal of the work, due to her LOA. So, Orams Marine Services constructed a 315-foot-long (96-meter-long), climate-controlled, shrink-wrapped structure. No easy task, judging by the three weeks it took to create and the sheer amount of materials involved. Try these on for size: 600 wood planks measuring nearly 10 feet (3 meters) each, and 300 PVC pieces measuring nearly 20 feet (6 meters) each. Then there was 37,674 square feet (3,500 square meters) of shrink wrap, all of which was recycled upon _Athena’_s completion.

So what work was performed on Athena? Plenty. The hull and superstructure were repainted, as were the three 200-foot-tall (61-meter-tall) masts, which along with their rigging needed to be removed and then reinstalled. The masts alone required four cranes and 20 craftspeople to take off and then put back on Athena. Thankfully the 28,000 square feet (2,601 square meters) of sail area didn’t need replacing, though it did of course require removal, checks for repairs, and ultimately reinstallation, several days all together. All 55 winches were overhauled, too.

A good deal of varnish was reapplied aboard Athena, both outside and inside. Since only some exterior areas of varnish suffered sun damage, Orams Marine Services’ craftspeople needed to ensure the new gloss matched the remaining gloss. As for other tasks, suffice it to say that hardly a single piece of machinery or fixture went untouched, from the propellers to Athena’s fantastic figurehead.
