Third refit landed at Burgess Marine Portchester
Burgess Marine, which offers both commercial and superyacht refit and repair services in the UK and at STP Palma, has landed a 57m superyacht refit for its Portchester yard, located at the top of Portsmouth Harbour, in the UK.
The yacht, stated to be a “1992 Swiftships,” and is most likely the yacht Tacanuya, will encompass structural, mechanical and electrical works across an 8 to 9 month period. The yacht will also undergo paint works and a major interior overhaul by Trimline Superyacht Interiors.
“Refits on this scale are great news for Burgess Marine, and perhaps more importantly great news for the South Coast and the rest of the UK,” says Nicholas Warren, Burgess Marine’s Managing Director. “She’s a substantial vessel with a major program of works and we look forward to working very closely with the owner’s team.”
Andrew Tree of Superyacht Technical Services is heading up the project from the owner’s side. He was instrumental in both the decision to bring the vessel to the UK and the choice of Burgess Marine as the base for works. “It’s great to see her coming to the UK,” Tree says of the yacht and refit project. “I’ve known the yacht for many years and it’s a great privilege to be part of this next and exciting phase of her life.”
The announcement comes as a hat-trick for Burgess Marine; the company is also undertaking major works on a 33m Hakvoort and a 34m explorer yacht from Brooke Marine; both refits are again at the company’s Portchester footprint.
