The Oceanco 706 86m Seven Seas has been completed and re-launched three days before its scheduled finish. This was after a three month refit which included an Awlgrip blue hull topsides re-spray and various other maintenance jobs.
Amico & Co managed the refit in coordination with the Oceanco after-sales team and Wright Maritime Group. Captain Sea Wrigley said it had “been a very smooth yard period both for me and our management company." The recorded quality standard has been certified by the Dutch CCS and by the Italian surveyor company Alfa Bravo Srl, with a record average of 94 GU and 92 DOI.
The Codecasa 62m Apogee will be delivered next week after three months in a dry-dock facility, having undergone a new Alexseal topcoat re-spray and after completing the 10 year Class survey.
Managing the refit were Captain John Fleckenstein and Andre Peens of International Yacht Collection. The paint job was completed on schedule, in time for the yacht winter season. “There have been big challenges between painting and the 10 year hull and machinery survey. The staff at the Amico shipyard have communicated well and been very accommodating. The shipyard adjusted their own schedule to accommodate the working hours of our office in the USA. The process of invoicing was updated weekly and Amico’s ability to work with the onsite captain and overseas management, resulted in a well-informed and controlled yard period,” explained Fleckenstein.
President of the shipyard, Alberto Amico said, “in the last three months we have had 16 projects performed on board +50m LOA yachts visiting our yard, and another 14 projects performed on yachts under 50m LOA. Our clients are growing increasingly confident in our capability and reliability. Due to the new 102m covered dry-dock, we will soon (delivery August 2014) be able to offer an even more attractive shipyard organisation for managing more refits at the same time, up to 100m LOA and over.”
