Based in Belfast, Maine, Front Street Shipyard is currently hosting two New Zealand-built luxury vessels: charter yacht MARAE (ex Paraiso) as well as sailing yacht SYMMETRY, that have just joined the yard, following their trips north from the Caribbean. These two Kiwi sisters will be summering in Maine, while they undergo refits.
Superyacht MARAE is a 108-foot pilothouse sloop that won “Best Sailing Yacht” from the International Superyacht Design Awards in 2004. At Front Street Shipyard she’ll be getting new paint on both her hull and superstructure, and Front Street Shipyard will be addressing systems and electrical needs. The yard will also be making some modifications to the owners’ cabin.
Luxury yacht SYMMETRY is a one-off custom yacht designed by Germán Frers and built in 2004. At 96 feet, she’s been a comfortable cruising boat around the world for the past decade.SYMMETRY is spending the next few months getting new paint from the top of her 130-foot mast to the bottom of her 12-foot keel. She’ll also be getting new teak decks before heading back out to enjoy the Maine summer.
