We were privileged to fix up both a well-known superyacht and her support vessel during spring this year.
The 46m superyacht Vantage was in recently for a general marine survey and small structural aluminium repairs from Whangarei custom refit and repair experts Ship Repair.
We removed the shafts and carried out a complete driveline alignment survey, then we put in all new bearings.
The structural repairs consisted of removing sections of the interior and protecting the vessel for hotworks (welding, cutting and hot rivets). We cut out the cracked sections of structure and replaced these with new material. All work was done under the strict instructions of the local Lloyd’s surveyor.
The vessel received a full antifoul coating and some new topside paint work.
The Vantage’s 54m support vessel, the Sea Axe Advantage, received a full bearing replacement and alignment survey.
This work was overseen by the ship builders, engineers from Damen Shipyards. Our trusty crew at Ship Repair carried out the work under their strict guidance.
A section of the hull at the ship’s bow had been damaged, so this required cutting and replacing with new material.
A lot of the interior spaces received new custom-made stainless and aluminium shelving, fabricated and fitted in position.
The vessel also received a full antifouling on the hull and touch-up painting on the topside.
