Atollvic completes major refit of 'Seawolf'


The 1955 Dutch-built explorer yacht, Seawolf has completed a significant refit at Vigo’s Atollvic shipyard, which began in late September, and involved 120 days of active labour on the part of 65 full-time employees.

The site’s commercial manager, Diego Gomez said that the project quickly became so much more than the initial five-year survey. “We all agreed – yard staff and crew – that a lot more got achieved than was initially planned”, he said. “Seawolf is now ready to cruise the oceans for another five years but, as well as the jobs and services required by ABS for a five-year survey, there was lots of further works completed, of varying complexity.”

According to Gomez additional work included the installation of a new air conditioning system, the replacement of the sewage tank, refurbishment of the aft deck crane, an overhaul of the vessel’s steering, 26sqm of steel plate replacement for the ice B-class hull, the switch of the windlass system from DC to AC power, and the installation of a new AMS system and fire detection system.

Seawolf’s captain, Drarg Richards said that the end result was a resounding success:

“We recently undertook a five-year survey and hull painting at Atollvic yard in Vigo. I could not be happier with the service, quality and efficiency demonstrated by Atollvic. We undertook a major amount work in a short period of time and most pleasing for all involved was the great attitude from all involved across the board, which in turn made for a great yard period and a very pleasing end result for Seawolf.”

Gomez also took the opportunity to thank Richards and his crew for their cooperation. “We wish Captain Drarg and the great crew of Seawolf all the best and thank for them for this great opportunity”, he said. “One last word of appreciation too, to our business partners IMG New Zealand, who managed the paint job and all the other technical support needed during this refit.”
