Front Street shipyard, Maine, USA, has announced the successful completion of a year-long refit on 32.28m Burger Boat yacht Stoneface.

The1978 launched, Jack Hargrave designed motoryacht, left the yard in pristine condition on 31 December 2012, after arriving several months earlier for major repair work.

The items on the list included replacement of two 510-HP GM engines and extensive corrosion issues that required immediate attention.

Her owner had requested a complete refit that extended from bow to transom, which meant a phenomenal task for her Front Street team with replacement of Stoneface’s generators and oil change system and an upgrade to her bow-thruster and steering systems all required.

New freshwater pumps and gray water pumps, as well as black-water plumbing were installed.

Rewiring has modernised Stoneface with new LED lighting on dimmers, an extensive A/V upgrade and Marquipt davits.

Her interior was revarnished and repainted, the carpets and wallpaper were all replaced, and many of the ceiling surfaces were replaced. The galley was upgraded with new
countertops, wall surfaces and modern appliances.

The majority of the decking was replaced with new teak decking, apart from a small area that was re-seamed instead.

The yacht has a fond appeal for the many who worked on her, or who have come into contact through her career. Posts on Facebook documenting her launch attracted emotional engagement from well-wishers: "I miss my days on the Stoneface, but have enjoyed watching the refit over the past year on Facebook," commented one.
