Sailing yacht Adèle visits Royal Huiman’s Huisfit

The 2005-built Vitters sailing yacht Adèle has been booked into Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman’s refit and repair facility Huisfit where she will receive a series of refit and renewal works over the coming winter season. Adèle is the first yacht to visit the yard’s newly increased Vollenhove refit facility since last summer.

The facility is designed to accommodate one yacht up to 90 metres with another three sheds able to receive yachts up to 60 metres. The two paint halls are fitted with high intensity lighting, along with air flow, temperature and humidity controls that are exceed the highest requirements set by world leading paint manufacturers.

Work to be completed on Adèle includes the servicing and overhaul of her propulsion system including generators, thrusters and on board control and monitoring systems. Inside, she will receive an update cooling system and air ducting as well as a replacement of some navigation electronics and alarms. Once completed she will sport a new teak deck and caprail as well as a repaint of the hull, superstructure and rig.

Royal Huisman will be attending the METSTRADE this week, which kicks off today. Visit them at their stand located in the Superyacht Pavilion.
