The refit of superyacht Asolare


Completed in 2004 by the US shipyard Hodgdon Yachts, the 47.15 metre ketch Asolare was originally built under the name Scheherezade and, at the time, was the largest cold-molded yacht ever built. A decade after her launch she was due for a minor refit, and in Autumn of last year, she arrived at the Front Street Shipyard in Maine for her Lloyd’s survey, a fresh paint and systems maintenance.

Describing the systems work on the yacht, the shipyard comments, “Asolare’s systems are comprehensive, which meant we had to put all of our best technicians aboard. Working with the yacht’s crew, our team identified several updates that would put Asolare back in the water with more comfort for the crew and her guests."

“Our electrical team ran a significant amount of new wire through the hull and mast for computer, electronics and entertainment systems. Some of Asolare’s hydraulics also needed maintenance, so we made upgrades to the most critical systems on board the boat.”

She'll spend the winter cruising in warmer climes and is scheduled to return to Front Street Shipyard in Spring for some additional work ahead of the summer season.
