Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture is thrilled to announce that motor yacht Faith (ex Fortunato, Cakewalk) has received the award for ‘Best Refitted Motor Yacht 2013’ during the eight annual World Superyacht Awards.
The awards gala took place on the 4th of May 2013 at the Çırağan Palace Kempinski in Istanbul, Turkey. The studio is very happy with this fine example of an up speed project being acknowledged with an award! Superyacht Faith has been refitted in only four months.
According to the clients’ wishes the whole sundeck has been modified into a large and open deck layout. This has been achieved by removing the helideck and spa pool on the aft deck. The new swimming pool with sunbathing beds on the foredeck is fully integrated with the existing structure.
To be able to take the extra loads we have performed extensive calculations and verifications on board. Azure’s calculation results enabled Composite Works to start building the composite pool and structure, which prevented any welding damage to the original superstructure. The result is an ideal area for various types of leisure such as; sunbathing, swimming, clubbing, dining and lounging.
Another request by the owner was reducing the sound- and vibration levels of the Faith yacht. Azure achieved this by modifying the generator foundations, which resulted in a superb noise and vibration reduction.
Finally Azure would like to congratulate all parties involved in the project with this award!
