ICON Yachts is to undertake a major refit on 47.5m Feadship-built Princess Too. Her work list includes a full Awlgrip repaint in a new color scheme and build up of a new underwater ship. ICON Yachts has also been commissioned to integrate a new black water double bottom storage tank for the yacht. Further major works include the repair and re-caulking of the teak deck with a light grey color complimenting the new exterior color scheme.

Launched from the Feadship van Lent yard in 1999, Princess Too is scheduled to complete her refit in five months. Focus will be on tne improvement of the aesthetical appeal of the yacht, whilst upgrading and servicing all technical systems, such as stabilisers, gearboxes and secondary systems. 

The ICON management team believe that it is their unique facilities and close proximity to the best suppliers that makes their yard so popular as a refit facility. Stephan Vitus, Head of Project Development explains: “It is the package we offer; from the first inspection on board to the detailed scope we specify and quotations free from build in sinkholes, right up to the enthusiastic team and strict quality control at the yard – that’s what differentiates us and convinces clients to drive their yachts from the Med to Holland, for a Dutch quality refit.”

Some of the most recent refit projects completed at ICON Yachts include the motoryachts Seven Sins, Rahil, Slipstream, C2 as well as the refits by Royal Huisman of Skat and EOS at the ICON facility. The shipyard is also completing the major conversion of the observation lounge to a VIP guest suite on their own build M/Y Meridian, with her departure scheduled for mid October.  Further works include the Huisman rigging refit of S/Y Juliet as well as final construction outfitting of a 80m Pilot Station Vessel in collaboration with Barkmeijer Shipyards. One further refit slot is available prior to the arrival of a large completion project.
