Due to her recent sale in September this year, and considering the fact that her last big refit was 24 years ago in 1993, her new owner, represented by KK Superyachts in Monaco, decided to begin the refit this year. 

The 57.7-metre motor yacht is currently being hauled out and shunted into the yard’s biggest refit hall. Daan Balk, the CEO of Balk Shipyard, said:  ‘We are excited to have an iconic yacht like Dancing Hare with us. We feel honoured and proud to be selected and trusted to work on this revolutionary yacht and to get her to the best shape possible, using the latest technology."

Dancing Hare is due to be relaunched by the summer of 2018.
