Yacht Solutions, one of the leading companies offering regular shore side support to yachts throughout Thailand and with SuperyachtGLOBAL, throughout the world, has recently worked with various yachts that are cruising through the Asia-Pacific region, including the charter yacht Douce France, Northern Sun, motor yacht Vantage, MY Lady J as well as the 70m mini cruise ship Saluzi which engaged the Yacht Solutions´ services to plan their whole itinerary for a very busy owners charter from Singapore to Phuket and back. The Yacht Solutions´ staff went on board to lead the cruise ensuring that all went smoothly.
MY Ada Hardy, a Tasmanian fishing vessel which was lovingly converted by the current owner into a strong ocean going yacht. It arrived in Phuket for some major refit and TLC after drying out in Darwin. The work took place in the Boat Lagoon Marina in Phuket. The major refit work included deck scarfing and caulking, splining topsides, fibre glass work, interior, electrics, HVAC and complete exterior re-paint and antifouling. The vessel now lies in Phuket.
The 25m luxury yacht Sassy arrived in Phuket in late 2010 and undertook a project with Yacht Solutions including AV, HVAC, engineering, electronics, fibreglass, metal fabrication and interior modifications and refitting while alongside at the Yacht Haven Marina. The work was completed in early 2011 and she is now cruising South East Asia.
In May, the 46m Picchiotti super yacht Golden Compass contracted Yacht Solutions to remove and replace the teak deck on the main deck of the vessel. Additionally, to replace all the teak on the swim platform and platform stairs as well as repairs of the teak work in other areas. All the work was completed alongside at Ao Po Marina in Phuket. Then in September, the owner contacted Yacht Solutions again for more work. This time, Yacht Solutions welcomed Golden Compass back to undertake a yard period in Bangkok in November 2011 to complete an Awlgrip hull repaint, the installation of ASEA shorepower convertor, various engineering works, major engine overhauls and interior work. The yacht will launch next week.
The 100´ Camper Nicholsons sailing yacht Never Say Never arrived in Phuket in late 2010 and stayed for a few months with Yacht Solutions acting as agent. During the time she had extensive refit work done while alongside at the Ao Po Marina in Phuket. The work included teak deck repairs, engineering, stainless steel work, electrical and electronic upgrades, upholstery, watermaker installation and HVAC projects. We also successfully arranged cruising trips to the Andaman Islands and Myanmar before the yacht left to finish its world tour.
The 36m super yacht White Rabbit Charlie came to Phuket for a 3 month refit in March 2011. Berthed at the Yacht Haven Marina, extensive teak and paint work was undertaken. The removal, replacement and sanding of the majority of the main deck teak decking was undertaken to re-seal the teak to the aluminium deck and offer a new look to the deck. After having her topsides painted in Singapore, the yacht had the entire superstructure to a sprayed commercial finish using Nippon paint systems. The yacht is now cruising the South East Asian region again.
The 108´ luxury charter yacht Nymphaea is a repeat client to Yacht Solutions. After her extensive refit with Yacht Solutions when she arrived in Asia 2 years ago, Nymphaea hauled out with Yacht Solutions in Phuket for a variety of works including antifouling, engineering, interior and exterior beautification and is now in Phuket for the season. She is now planning a third refit period with Yacht Solutions this year for a re-paint.
The 116´ Hye Seas II superyacht is another repeat customer for Yacht Solutions. After years of working with Yacht Solutions as agent while in Thailand, Hye Seas II arrived in late 2011 for a refit at Ratanachai shipyard in Phuket including major structural modifications, gel coat and teak deck work, antifouling and various engineering projects.
