Christensen Shipyards refits superyacht First Draw
Christensen Shipyards has recently completed a total refit of a member of their fleet. M/Y First Draw, first built in 1995 as M/Y Cacique, has been updated to both the technical and styling standards of 2012. Everything from two new Caterpillar engines, to the floors to overhead panels has been retouched to make First Draw a first-class yacht.
First Draw is currently docked in Vancouver, Wash. Throughout the guest areas of the yacht, the interior has been updated with brand new carpet, wall coverings, ceiling panels and paint to make a warm, fresh, and inviting feel. The main salon has been remodeled with all new custom furniture, and an updated entertainment system, while the dining room has an all new table, placed under a silver leaf overhead feature. The perimeter features new onyx countertops and window coverings. The sky lounge was also refurbished with custom furniture, window covers, and a new refrigerator in the bar. The foyer has been extended with a new marble inlay floor, and a day head has been added. In the wheelhouse, the captain will be able to navigate with a brand new navigation system, seated on new helm covers.
All four of the guest cabins have been updated to reflect a continuous style. The VIP cabin has a brand new en suite bathroom, finished with custom marble floors, countertops, and shower. The cabin also features new carpet and wall coverings and a settee and pop-up vanity. The revamped master suite includes separate his/hers bathrooms; one containing a Jacuzzi tub. The two guest cabins each have an en suite bathroom with new plumbing fixtures, finished with new marble floors, vanity tops, and showers. One cabin has been reconfigured to include one queen and one single bed, while the other has two single beds.
The exterior of the ship was given a new coat of paint and a new rub rail, while new teak decking was added throughout. The enclosed Main aft deck has ten new chairs around the dining table, with new granite countertops on the built-in cabinets. The aft bridge deck has all new furniture, including four chaise lounge chairs, four club chairs, two side tables, and a coffee table. The Sundeck features a new hot tub and a bar with a new marble top and three barstools and new sunpads and cushions. First Draw comes with two jet skis and a new 16' Nautica tender.
