Captain Greame Riddle of PRINCESS TOO yacht says: “The work is progressing very good and is very well managed by the appointed ICON Yachts project manager Leon de Haas”.

Right at this moment the teak decking is being repaired and re-caulked. In this process the original black caulking was replaced by a modern looking grey coloured caulking which complements the new exterior colour scheme.

As part as the complete repaint the hull will be finished in Awl Grip dark grey with a fresh boot top line combination and a classic Matterhorn white superstructure. The underwater ship has been completely stripped by sandblasting to bare metal and re-primed for accepting the new system once all hull hot work is completed.

Further improvements include the installation of a black water holding tank, system upgrades and scheduled maintenance work including the removal and complete overhaul of the Quantum zero speed stabilisers.

According to project manager Leon Haas: “the co-cooperation with the captain and crew works very well, which aids for us to perform our job both efficiently and at the best quality”.
