Last week we reported about the recent refir of superyacht Ronin at Lürssen. Today we can bring you more details about the work that was carried out whilst this 20 year old yacht was in Germany.
Refit, Repair and Conversion has become a core business for Lürssen. During the last 12 months 8 yachts between 46 and 110 metres have used the Lürssen facilities for modifications. Amongst them are some of the world's most beautiful yachts such as Coral Island, Radiant or Mayan Queen.
The refit of Ronin was one of the bigger refits. During her 11 month stay at the yard she has undergone a complete face-lift from the technical side up to the repainting of the hull and superstructure to make her as good as new.
Work included the removal of the old teak decks, installation of a new noise reducing cork underlay and installation of new teak decking, the dismantling of 50% of the interior to remove old AV cables, and the installation of new state of the art AV, telephone and camera systems. The yachts generators and main engines were overhauled, and she underwent her 10 year ABS survey. More technical work included the complete overhaul of pumps and valves in technical areas, the installation of a new provision cooling plant and new shaft bearings.
Cosmetic work included composite work on foredeck storage boxes, wing consoles, and tender cradles. The installation of a new sun awning system for sun-/bridge deck, and a new paintjob.
She left the shipyard in August 2013 to the complete satisfaction of her owner.
