Dunya Yachts completes refit of Lürssen superyacht Capri
By Merijn de Waard
In March 2010 the 59 metre superyacht Capri arrived at Dunya Yachts, as her new owners had selected the Turkish shipyard for a range of works, including a full repaint of the hull and superstructure. The refit team of Dunya Yachts has just informed SuperYachtTimes.com that they have successfully completed the refit.
The shipyard features one of most extensive and impressive refit facilities in the Mediterranean with a 5000 ton floating dock, 4500 square metres of climate controlled sheds and an 80 metre covered dry dock, which is the only covered and climate-controlled dock in Turkey.
The refit division has a highly skilled on-site team with English speaking project managers who work with both local and the most renowned international subcontractors. The planning department offers the most advanced technology, allowing all refit works to be planned in ERP/ IFS systems, and a monitoring system enabling the clients to receive real-time updates.
In March 2010 Managing director Sedat Ergün told SuperYachtTimes.com, "we will expand our refit division and Istanbul will become a great refit stop in the very near future." With the successful completion of the refits of Deja Too and now Capri, the company is on course to become a leading refit and repair shipyard.
