Front Street Shipyard launch 27.4m Asha after extensive refit

Written by Gemma Fottles

The U.S. based Front Street Shipyard has announced that the 27.4 metre yacht Asha has been launched after spending the entire winter and spring at their facilities in Maine. Her extensive refit included exterior paint touch upโ€™s, a comprehensive update of her interior, modernised galley, granite countertops in the master head and stonework in both showers as well as the addition of heated floor tiles.

Ashaโ€™s systems also required some maintenance and updating, and the team at Front Street Shipyard installed a new stern thruster. The hydraulic system also needed updating, and the team replaced almost all of the hydraulic fittings and hoses. In the power system, the shaft, flexible coupling and props were refurbished, and all major pumps were either replaced or rebuilt. Concluding the bulk of the work was the installation of several new electronics on board, as well as new nameboards.

The team at Front Street Shipyard are currently finishing up some small projects. Upon completion, she will be heading south.
