Holland Jachtbouw has commenced a major refit on the 42-metre motoryacht Life Saga. Supported by naval architect Azure and interior designer Artline, the work will take nine months and includes bringing all technologies and systems up to 2007 standard. New features will include new engines, the teak deck and a Jacuzzi integrated into the superstructure to be flush with the bridge deck. The yard will also be responsible for a partial replacement and modernisation of the interior.
On the main deck, the stern will be extensively remodelled and the stairs replaced to gain more deck space. A complete renovation of the lazarette will ensure a wide range of watersports toys can be carried. There will still be ample space left on the main deck to create an official outside dining area.
The bridge deck will be exclusively used as a private area for the owners. The lounge will be enlarged and transformed into a luxurious entertainment room. Other features of the bridge deck will include a gymnasium with lounge chairs and bar facilities. Finally, Life Saga’s top deck will be extended by four metres to become a genuine sunbathing paradise.
“Life Saga was designed for unlimited cruising and we are now going to bring her to a new level of technology,” comments Managing Director Paul Dielemans. “Holland Jachtbouw’s refit strategy is based on comprehensive projects that deploy all of the yard’s capacities. We specialise in projects where high-quality is not only expected but demanded. Life Saga fits the bill perfectly.”
