W arrives at Feadship for six-month refit
This project is a working example of the yard’s ‘Rebuild’ strategy for its fleet…
Feadship-built 57.60m M/Y W, originally launched in 2013, has been acquired by new owners, who have subsequently taken the vessel back to the Netherlands, and asked Feadship to carry out a refit.
The refit, which is due to take six-months, is to align W to its owners’ personal preferences in terms of amenities, sleeping accommodation and exterior. The current VIP stateroom will be converted into two guest suites making a total of four guest cabins on the lower deck.
The current owner’s stateroom on the main deck will remain the same but the option to accommodate two further guests will be created in the bridge deck lounge. A Murphy’s wall bed will be installed and the day-head on this deck refitted into a dedicated bathroom for when the lounge is used as a guest suite.
The owners plan to keep the majority of the original interior style, developed by Bannenberg & Rowell Design, while adding some personal touches in partnership with A La Mer Inc. from Fort Lauderdale.
One change that will be instantly recognisable will be the transformation of the ship’s white hull to metallic silver and the installation of a larger Jacuzzi on the sun deck.
All of W’s systems and software will also be serviced and updated before the refit’s planned completion in mid-March 2020.
