South Pacific tuna vessel Evelina da Rosa was brought to us in May to undergo renovations from the most hard to reach areas of the fishwell’s to the hull. The team at Ship Repair NZ Ltd were able to deliver the Evelina’s owner a fully comprehensive service by bringing the 86 metre-long Evelina onto the slipway.
She is a significant vessel, weighing in at just under 2000 tonnes. Ship Repair has the largest slipway North of Auckland for working on vessels of this size, with our slipway lying inside a sheltered commercial wharf.
We repaired the Evelina da Rosa beginning with the main mast, where we cut the top crow’s nest and lengthened it to the owner’s specifications. We added a viewing platform with an aluminium sun shelter. We then modified the two existing radar platforms.
