For the very first time NCP and British Company International super yacht Coating (ISC) have come together to refit a super yacht. Ladyship, a 41 m Hessen built super yacht was berthed at the coast of Montenegrin, where the decision for its refit was taken, before its arrival at NCP.

Ladyship has undergone its first refit in NCP since it started serving. This major refit included work such as overhauling and maintenance of two diesel engines MTU 2560 HP, checking and replacement of shafts and shaft and rudder bearings, tank cleaning and checking wall thickness and permeability. The whole exhaust system of the generator was removed and replaced with a new one.The hull monitoring included inspection of hull thickness for any kind of cracks or erosion of the hull material. All the system valves were overhauled and replaced by new ones wherever required.

The accommodation system also received a complete make-over, including new stairways between the upper and lower deck, crew cabin renovation and new flooring in the corridors.

The navigational and communication devices of the vessel were repaired, restored and re networked by the Marine Electronics Center in the NCP workshop itself. But the main work that required the longest time and efforts was the painting of the whole hull and superstructure, which was successfully executed in NCP Sibenik.

Ladyship is not ready to set sail with a thoroughly revised look and interiors, as good as new. After Ladyship, there are almost half a dozen more ships in the pipeline that are to be re-fitted by the joint effort of NCP and ISC.
