M/Y 'Seahorse' undergoes significant refit at Monaco Marine La Ciotat
Originally built by Amels in 1999, the vessel is undergoing a number of upgrades…
Having previously been refitted in 2016, the new owner of M/Y Seahorse has decided to do further works on it, with a project that will span across the next three months. The project is being managed by the Monaco Marine team and Ocean Independence, alongside the ship’s crew.
The works include a 20-year Lloyd’s survey, a one-metre extension on the aft, a new paint job, an interior refit as well as some general maintenance. The general manager of La Ciotat, Nicolas Genelot, is pleased to be overseeing these works: "It is a genuine pleasure to bring Seahorse to Monaco Marine La Ciotat. The works we will perform bring together expertise from all departments, from mechanical to refit and renovation, in order to maintain Seahorse’s unique character."
Last year saw Monaco Marine expand its network of facilities with the opening of new refit yards in La Seyne-Toulon and Marseiile. La-Seyne specialises in the refit and repair of yachts between 30-55m and has the capacity to accommodate 28 superyachts at any one time. The facility in Marseille has a total of 320m of dock and the ability to cater to superyachts up to 160m in length.
As well as opening a number of facilities in 2018, Monaco Marine became one of four designated partners of Feadship within the new Feadship Refit & Services department. “These yards have been chosen because of their excellent reputation and the fact that Feadship has successfully worked with them on previous Feadship refit and maintenance projects,” commented Pier Posthuma de Boer, director of Feadship Refit & Services, in November 2018. “They are all leaders in their part of the world and team from the Feadship yard in The Netherlands will work closely together with the yards to ensure owners the best possible service."
