Last month saw the departure of the newly refitted 65m motor yacht Shemara from Trafalgar Wharf in UK’s Portchester. Following her three-year refit, the classic 1938 superyacht Shemara slowly edged her way through The Drystack in the dead of night and out onto the ship launch area. Subsequently, she left for Southampton a couple of days later to undergo her final sea trials.
Trafalgar Wharf Managing Director Jonny Boys said: “Shemara is a beautiful super-yacht and it has been a privilege to have her here and see her totally rebuilt.”
Nicholas Warren of Burgess Marine said: “Seeing her emerge from the shed where she has been carefully and exquisitely rebuilt, it is clear that this has been a project of considerable scope. As the sun glinted off her fresh white hull and she made her way – albeit backwards to begin with – down the channel through Portsmouth Harbour, it was clear that this was a renaissance worthy of attention.”
