It has been a great start to 2013 for PURE Superyacht Refit, following the nomination of motor yacht Paramour as a finalist in two of the industry’s most prominent awards: the International Yacht & Aviation Awards as well as the acclaimed World Superyacht Awards. Based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, the specialist independent refit management company is also looking forward to the year ahead after concluding 2012 on a high note with the return of a long-standing client, luxury yacht Slipstream, finalist superyacht Paramour, plus five new vessels.
Continuing its success and reaffirming its position in the superyacht refit industry, PURE is proud to have been short-listed as award finalists for both awards following the refit carried out by the team on luxury yacht Paramour. She is an outstanding CMN 43m displacement yacht that undergone an extensive redesign and refurbishment ahead of the 2012 charter season. She was re-launched in May last year.
The refit works carried out by the PURE team, headed up by Nic Clarke, made her one of the most desirable charter yachts in her class due to superior entertainment areas such as the new beach club style sun deck featuring two granite topped bars (one with BBQ), large Spa Pool and dining for twelve, and an extended swim platform. These assets are only normally found on larger, more expensive charter vessels.
During the six months of the project the team at PURE carried out primary works including naval architecture and design, a hull extension, paint works, the design and installation of new sundeck layout, custom stainless steel and granite galley completed with new appliances, furniture and upholstery, and works required for compliance and approval to both Lloyds class and Caymans flag acceptance.
Nic Clarke, owner of PURE, said: “The team at PURE are both delighted and very proud to reach finalist status of the two most envied awards in our industry. We are up against some very stiff competition of some beautiful refits carried out by some of the most successful and reputable shipyards. Even to just reach finalist status is indeed an honour. It’s a great testament to our professional approach to refit projects and to the skills, commitment and effort displayed by our team and recognition of the craftsmanship and value of having a refit carried out by PURE and in Palma de Mallorca.”
Now in its eighth year, the World Superyacht Awards honour the finest new superyacht builds delivered to their owners in the past twelve months and PURE has been short-listed in the ‘Refitted Yacht Award’ category. The winners will be announced on 4 May 2013.
In addition, The International Yacht & Aviation Awards are hosted by design et al, a leading UK interior design magazine. PURE has been short-listed in the Yacht Awards category. The winners will be announced on 19 April 2013.
PURE also is looking forward to the year ahead following new client additions at the end of 2012. With four refits currently being undertaken at PURE in Palma, and bookings and enquires for next fall refit season and the stock markets showing some positive movements, 2013 looks to continue to grow.
