The season of winter refits started at full steam at Amico & Co, and actually many are the yachts which decided to spend these months in the Genoa yard.
First to arrive in the yard were two sailing yachts belonging to the Mirabella fleet : Mirabella and Mirabella III, two twin hulls which came for maintenance work before starting a new charter season in the Caribbean.
Then arrived M/Y Radiant (Amels 52m) which is going to be fully re-painted. Radiant had been hauled by using the powerful 550 tons travel lift of the yard and in less then 2 hours the vessel was positioned into one of the seven painting sheds.
But at the beginning of this new winter season the most important job is surely represented by Felicità West, a 64m Perini Navi. Amico & Co was chosen by Felicità West managers in order to re-paint the hull, the superstructure, the masts and the boom, as well as the checking of propeller shafts and rudder stock and whatever required by Lloyd’s Register to renew the five-year class certificate.
During the Genoa Boat Show Amico & Co inaugurated the brand new offices inviting authorities and press to a cocktail party. The offices are on the top of the new 1000m2 painting shed from where is possible to admire a wonderful panorama.
In November Amico & Co will attend with its own stand the METS, the Dutch fair trade specialized in nautical equipment and services. Amico & Co is also the official repair and refit sponsor of the Global Superyacht Forum and Alberto Amico, Managing Director of the yard, will be one of speakers taking part to the round table discussing topics as the planning and the management of refitting works.
