Ronin has left her builder Lürssen’s refit arm, to the ‘complete satisfaction of her owner’ after a substantial refit.

The 58.5m yacht, launched in 1993 and from the drawing boards of Sir Norman Foster, spent eleven months at the yard for major work including technical overhaul and repainting of her hull and superstructure.

Work included replacement and removal of her teak decking, the installation of cork underlay for noise reduction and complete overhaul of her Cat generators and MTU main engines. She underwent dismantling of around 50% of her interior to replace AV cables with ‘state of the art’ AV, telephone and camera systems.

Ronin also had a complete overhaul of pumps and valves in her technical areas, a new provision cooling plant, new shaft bearings and a new sun awning system for the sun/bridge deck.

Refit, repair and conversion has become a core business, says Lürssen. During the last 12 months it has completed eight yachts of up to 110m LOA, including Coral Island, Radiant and Mayan Queen.
