Palumbo Superyachts Marseilles and the Fraser management team have jointly completed the thorough 20 Year Survey on the 77-metre 1999-built Amels superyacht Boadicea (ex: Reborn). Featuring interior and exterior designs by Terence Disdale and Sterling / Scot, Boadicea can accommodate up to 14 guests and a crew of up to 31.Photo: Palumbo SuperyachtsPhoto: Palumbo SuperyachtsPhoto: Palumbo SuperyachtsPalumbo Superyachts Refit & Repair measured the thickness of Boadicea’s hull and tanks and replaced worn-out plates in order to comply with the Lloyd’s Register requirements. Some crew compartments were completely dismantled, repaired and welded back together. The tanks were then tested under pressure to validate the work and ensure that everything worked accordingly.

Sections of the 20-year-old teak decking had to be recaulked including the entire swim platform and aft and forward part of the upper deck.

Speaking about this year’s refit season, Mr. Giulio Maresca, General Manager for Palumbo Marseille, commented: “2019 has started in the best possible way. The shipyard was thriving with activity and the Palumbo team was always on hand to support every need of our clients. So far, the turnover has exceeded what we achieved in 2018 and we feel confident about the upcoming season. The confirmations already received put us in the favourable situation of rapidly running out of dry-dock and mooring slots. One suggestion for all clients: try us and we will respond with a professional attitude, support and attention to details."
