A little over a year since Royal Huisman created Huisfit the specialized refit division is in the midst of re-outfitting a high-profile sailing yacht and a motoryacht.
The superyacht sailor presently in house is Eos, the 305-foot (93-meter) that has been turning heads since delivery by Lürssen in 2006. She ranks as the world’s largest private sailing yacht. The checklist of work being performed on Eos is pretty extensive. It ncludes the overhaul of her spars and masts (she’s a three-masted schooner design), plus servicing her deck equipment. Eos is further gaining a new paint job for her hull and superstructure and new teak decking in some spots. The Huisfit team is also servicing machinery and systems as part of Eos’ five-year Lloyds recertification and making cosmetic repairs.
The motoryacht in Huisfit’s hands also happens to be a Lürssen, Be Mine. Given that she’s nearly 11 years old, her owners wanted Huisfit to thoroughly update her. The 132-footer (40-meter) is gaining modifications of her sundeck and main deck, plus new ports. New teak decking is being laid, and new paint is being applied to the hull and superstructure. Huisfit is further sourcing new interior fabrics and updated electronics for everything from entertainment to navigation. That also means that wiring is being upgraded.
As stated above, the two projects come about a year after Huisfit welcomed its first project, the Lloyds recertification of the 107-foot (33-meter) Karyatis, built by Heesen Yachts. And last summer, the Royal Huisman-built Arcadia worked with the Huisfit team in preparation for a crossing of the Northwest Passage.
