The Feadship facility at Makkum in the Netherlands has received the 57.3m/187.9ft luxury yacht AMARA, originally known as CACIQUE when she was launched in 1986.
The current Owners purchased AMARA in 2020, and among the planned improvements is the addition of a helideck. This will involve the removal of the section where the new helideck, which is being built at the yard, will be installed. The teak on the sundeck will also be replaced, and the foredeck completely re-laid in teak.
The exterior of this classic vessel will receive a new paint job so that the helideck and foredeck match the other areas on board, and the Feadship Refit and Services division will complete technical and interior work to return her to optimal condition.
Other luxury yachts that have recently received a refit at Makkum include luxury yacht W (ex.LARISA), which underwent a 10-month refit, and 1954-built luxury yacht ISTROS that now blends contemporary and classic interior style.
Owners of a Feadship receiving maintenance and refit work at the shipyard facilities ensure that their vessel retains its resale value along with its quality and authenticity as a classic Feadship build.
