70.7m (232ft) LÜRSSEN MOTORYACHT SKAT
Luxury yacht Skat annually maintains a very active cruising schedule throughout the Med, Northern Europe, Scandinavia, Caribbean, Bahamas and United States. A concentrated programme of refit work had to be reliably accomplished within a short timescale to fit within that schedule. The majority of the 2013 works was undertaken by the Huisfit team under covered dry dock in Harlingen; a measure of Huisfit’s extensive capacity and flexibility. The work-list included:
- New cladding, new floors and hatches and general refurbishment/ upgrade of the two tender garages including corrosion repair and prevention.
- New exterior furniture for main and bridge decks
- Changes to the Jacuzzi deck layout including removal of bar and installation of sun beds
- Systems works including generator, shaft seals, hydraulic and black water piping replacement under the survey of Lloyd’s Register of Shipping
- A range of general works such as electrics and cosmetic paint repairs.

93m (305ft) LÜRSSEN 3-MASTED SCHOONER EOS
Mega yacht EOS returned to Harlingen in the summer of 2012 for a stage II refit & repair. The project was multi-faceted and required the involvement of the captain, crew and management team of the yacht; and specialist subcontractors involved with interior furniture and furnishings, electricals, air conditioning, insulation and audio-visual electronics. In short: exceptional project planning, collaboration and teamwork was called for in order to achieve complex objectives within the desired timeframe.

In terms of scope, the majority of the interior, and part of the upper deck exterior was replaced, while the forward and aft cabin deck were renovated, touched up and cleaned. To appreciate the full scope of the undertaking, a great deal of the interior was removed before replacement work could begin – a painstaking approach for captain Jerry Reed and his crew and for Huisfit’s project manager and his team.

Among the many contributors to this project, two of particular note were the specialist interior subcontractors Vedder, and Metrica, both of whom had worked on the original build and now displayed exemplary efficiency as they removed,fabricated and replaced the interior arrangements.

With so many contractors working together this was a challenging project, but EOS yacht departed Harlingen in good-as-new shape, as planned in mid-June 2013.

NIXE II
Despite being almost 60 years of age, motor yacht Nixe II seems to emerge from her Huisfit visits looking younger every time. A great classic motoryacht enhanced by a growing list of present-day features and amenities, Nixe’s worklist on this occasion of returning to Vollenhove included:
- Hull thickness inspection and repairs
- Paintjob of the hull
- Varnishing of the superstructure
- Various updates to electronics and mechanics like both shaft lines.
