The refit marks the second occasion her owner has returned to her builders at Feadship for refit. Utopia was first launched at Feadship in 2004 and has had one refit in that time frame.
Upgrades to her vital systems included a new HMSA Sewage treatment plant system to allow her to operate for extended periods in all cruising areas and ports, fully meeting the authorities’ requirements. Newly installed A-Sea water cooled shore converters, will also enable her to hook up to both 50 and 60 cycle power networks.
“The main reason to come to Feadship for a refit is to retain the essence of how the boat was built and ensure she remains of the highest pedigree possible in the world today,” said Utopia’s captain, Kevin Collins.
“This has certainly been achieved and the owners are looking forward to putting their better-than-new Feadship through her paces as they embark on their next adventures.”
The owner’s representatives and the Feadship refit team worked In close cooperation to undertake the refit in a swift time frame to meet the owner’s cruising schedule and budget.
