The scope of work included a full repaint, interior customisation, machinery and electronics upgrades. AMELS treats repaints with as much attention to detail as new builds – with the same spectacular results. “We go all the way back and start with primer,” explains AMELS Refit Project Manager Frank van Loo. “Doors, hatches, everything comes off.”

The interior upgrades enjoyed the same focus on quality, notes VOLPINI yacht’s Captain Nathan McFadyen. “The owner wanted it to look exactly as it looked ten years ago when it was brought out. We had some woodwork done in France prior to coming here and they couldn’t match the wood at all.” As the original builder, AMELS was in the perfect position to ensure the best finish, calling in original interior co-maker Metrica. The results, Captain McFadyen says, is perfect. “It’s absolutely fantastic.”

During her stay at AMELS, VOLPINI superyacht also underwent a 10-year class survey – something that Captain McFadyen was also pleased about. “The AMELS guys and the project managers helped us so much in organising that. It takes a lot of pressure off the captain.”

With the project completed on time and on budget, luxury yacht VOLPINI’s new owner was ready for a summer’s sailing in the Mediterranean. AMELS has now completed almost 40 refit projects, including both AMELS and non-AMELS yachts.
