During the 10-month refit of 57.6m/188.9ft W new anti-fouling was also added, and the sundeck Jacuzzi was replaced with a larger version.
Extensive alterations have been implemented within: The main salon layout has been rearranged to create a freer-flowing open plan environment, and the guest accommodation now has six en-suite cabins instead of four to allow four more guests onboard for overnight journeys. The original VIP stateroom has been converted into two guest cabins to port and starboard, and a double Murphy’s bed has been installed within the bridge deck lounge along with a marble bathroom in what was previously a day head. As a result of these alterations, the maximum total of people on board including the crew is 26 instead of 22. The original Bannenberg & Rowell interiors have been retained as much as possible, complemented by additions from Miami-based A La Mer, Inc.
Engineering has not been neglected either: Both MTU engines have had a complete overhaul and modernised where necessary, and the wheelhouse has new screens. LED lighting has replaced all the halogen lighting throughout luxury yacht W, and the same is true for the AV and IT systems in addition to a new sewage treatment system.
Following her refit, M/Y W underwent sea trials before being handed back to her proud Owner. By having the refit work for motor yacht W carried out by the shipyard that built her, she will receive the Feadship Authenticity Certificate. This confirms that she was refitted and maintained to the exacting standards of the shipyard and offers official recognition of her exceptional condition, adding to the resale value.
