Following the completion of an extensive refit in June this year at Balk Shipyard in the Netherlands, the owner of the 46.63-metre Feadship superyacht Explora (ex: Charisma) has wasted no time in putting his rejuvenated vessel to the test. Currently living up to her new name, Explora is cruising the Norwegian Fjords, as can be seen in the following photos.
Amongst the list of works undertaken on Explora was a complete exterior repaint, where her once all-white hull was transformed to a classic blue, as well as several modifications to her bow section. Explora was originally launched in 1985, built to a design by De Voogt Naval Architects.
