Built in 1997, Copihue is designed by Hoek Design and built to carry up to seven guests. Her refit in 2016 saw the yacht’s teak deck get replaced completely, newly painted hull and the installation of a new Perkins main engine.

The shipyard is now working together with the yacht’s owner to finalise the exact refit plans that will take place over the coming winter months.
