Dunya Yachts is a Turkish yacht building company which builds luxury yachts from 50 to 100 meters in length and currently has a couple of 70 m + superyachts under construction. Dunya Yachts, however, have also recently opened a new yacht refit division with the first yacht refitted, DEJA TOO, having being finished and successfully delivered to her owner in early June.

Located in Istanbul, the new Dunya Yachts refit facility is made up of two large sheds of 75m and 110m. There is also a 60m covered dry dock which also facilitates a complete range of luxury yacht repair and refit work.

Yacht refit work able to be carried out by Dunya includes full repaint, jobs using Awlgrip International, Jotun, Hempel, or other paint manufacturers, as well as mechanical work on engines, shafts, rudders and pumps. There is also the capacity for electrical work for generators, switchboards and electronic equipment.

Interior and exterior joinery work is also available at the yard and this can include the complete renewal of a superyacht’s interior furniture, as well as her teak decks, her bright work, and includes hull extensions or even superstructure alterations.

With motor yacht ‘Deja Too’, she was dry docked and stayed under cover for her refit. The work list on luxury yacht DEJA TOO included hull and superstructure repaint with Awlgrip Paint Systems, all deck hardware, weather tight doors, the aerials, windscreen and all related fittings stripped down and either repainted or replaced.

DEJA TOO’s engine room and equipment was also repainted. Also she had maintenance and repair work done on her machinery, such as main engine and generator calibration.

In addition to the work undertaken directly by Dunya, specialist company Vibratek completed work on complete vibration measurements for the various propeller shaft revolutions on the yacht.
