The Italian superyacht new build and refit group Palumbo Superyachts has recently welcomed 37m motoryacht Commitment to its Naples shipyard for major refit works. The project will see the yacht’s length modified and stern extended by an additional 8m, bringing the new LOA to 45m.
As well as the installation of a new beach club and Jacuzzi in the extended stern area, the engine room will be completely refurbished, with a full re-installation of the main engines, new generator sets, electrical system and air-conditioning system. The job list also involves the complete renewal of pipework, propeller shaft line and rudder repositioning, new navigation systems and acoustic insulation.
Having commenced works in July 2019, the project is due to be finished in May 2020 when the vessel will be delivered with a modern adaptation of its original design.
