Karima, built at Amels Shipyard in The Netherlands, visited Marco Chilena Shipyard recently and was dry docked in order to undertake a variety of repair work and upgrades including the renewal of the class certificate (LRS).
Karima, which is operationally managed by Fraser Yachts based out of Monaco arrived to the shipyard en route from Montevideo to Tahiti.
The diverse crew of Karima, made up of six different nationalities took advantage of their stay of 45 days in Iquique, Chile, to participate in a variety of activities when they had some time off. They expressed that they really enjoyed visiting some of the archeological sights in the Atacama Desert and the exeptional diving and surfing that Iquique has to offer.
The Marco shipyard personal enjoyed working with the captain and crew of Karima, and was grateful when invited to a cocktail on board the vessel in honor of the favorable results of the work by the Marco engineers, shipyard supervisors and workers.
