Motoryacht, Hilarium, has recently undergone a complete re-power and paint job at Derecktor Shipyard of Florida.

Built in the Netherlands in 1984, the 40.71-metre Hakvoort’s original engines (12V396’s) were replaced with MTU 16v2000 by cutting a 7x7 foot hole in the starboard side for removal and installation. The new engine’s raw water pickups were on the front of the engines, opposite of the original engines, meaning that all new copper-nickel welded raw water plumbing. There was also a substantial amount of engine bed modifications required to accommodate the new engine’s footprint.

All of the work was completed, including a complete exterior paint job, to a fantastic standard, with the yacht back in owner service in less than four months. A rapid turnaround, Captain Doug Coe states he is, ‘...thoroughly convinced that this could not have happened at any other yard than Derecktor.
