The work being undertaken includes the installation of a complete set of cranes and boarding equipment by Nautical Structures, and overseen by the American company’s senior service technician, Rick Martin.
According to Martin’s colleague, and the company's vice president, Rick Thomas the images show an accommodation stairway, which is undergoing shipyard testing. “The shell doors opened reveal speciality overhead tender garage cranes designed specifically for this build to handle a custom Cockwells tender”, Thomas added.
The Nautical Structures team also thanked the company’s Italian representative, Samos for securing the contract with the Perini Navi Group.
The 10.5m carbon fibre passarelle, fitted at the vessel's stern, and seen below undergoing testing, was also supplied and fitted by Nautical Structures. Thomas said that, working in conjunction with the Perini technical team, they were very impressed with the "Italian craftsmanship in build". "It has been a real pleasure building on this Italian-American partnership, bringing state-of-the-art technology melded with typical Perini Navi yacht construction."
