Royale Oceanic completes new Sarafsa
Thursday, 21 August 2008
The Private Client large yacht specialists Royale Oceanic have recently completed the Total Project Management which includes all commercial, legal and technical aspects, with its sister company Burness Corlett Three Quays providing naval architecture and marine engineering support for Sarafsa, the 82m superyacht built by Devonport.
Following successful sea trials, Sarafsa - project name ‘P54’ - with its distinctive burgundy coloured hull and teak transom, departed from Plymouth Sound in early July to meet its owner for the season. The new yacht, designed by Andrew Winch replaces its predecessor which also sported a burgundy hull and teak transom, and was sold on behalf of its owner by Royale Oceanic at the end of 2007.
Kevin Laverty, project director of Royale Oceanic who with his team ran the build of Sarafsa, is delighted with the results, “It is hugely satisfying to see Sarafsa leaving Plymouth after its four year build programme. We worked well as a large team to ensure that the yacht was completed to the total satisfaction of the client.”
Royale Oceanic is currently project managing the build of numerous yachts at yards in Northern Europe and Asia. The company is also currently involved in two major refit assignments, yacht sourcing assignments for private clients and a number of specification, survey and valuation projects.
