Refit Case Studies


Yachts refit at Front Street Shipyard

ZENYATTA

ZENYATTA is a Gunboat 62 undergoing a major refit to both update her and further customize her for a Caribbean and New England circuit.

BERILDA

BERILDA is a 122-foot steel-hulled Feadship that underwent a comprehensive yearlong refit at Front Street Shipyard in 2016.

AXIA

AXIA is a 123-foot S&S yacht that underwent a two-phase refit at Front Street Shipyard. Our team — as well as Langan Design Partners and the many vendors who supported us — won the Refit Excellence Award for Best Sailing Yacht Refit 2016.

ASHA

ASHA is a 90-foot Palmer Johnson motoryacht that spent 2014-15 at Front Street Shipyard. Her new owner requested a comprehensive refit of the boat. He brought her up to Belfast from southern Florida for the extensive work.

ASOLARE

Having celebrated her 10-year birthday, ASOLARE was due for her Lloyd’s survey, some fresh paint and systems maintenance. She spent the fall of 2014 with us in Belfast, Maine, for this minor refit.

MAGIC

Magic is a 130-foot tri-deck motoryacht built in 2004. Both her hull and superstructures are built of composite materials. Immediately following her transition to new owners, MAGIC spent the winter of 2013-14 at Front Street Shipyard for a major refit.

TOO ELUSIVE

TOO ELUSIVE is a ketch-rigged Southern Ocean 80 originally built in 1985. She spent the winter of 2012-2013 at Front Street Shipyard receiving a comprehensive refit that included everything from her hull to her interior to her rigging.

ATLANTIDE

Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, was home to ATLANTIDE, the 122-foot commuter yacht, during the winter and spring of 2012 to 2013. ATLANTIDE’s new owners purchased her in Palma in 2012, and transported her on Dockwise to the United States, where she arrived in November 2013.

STONEFACE

STONEFACE is a 106-foot aluminum yacht built by Burger Boats. Designed by Jack Hargrave, she was first launched in 1978. She came to us at Front Street Shipyard in early 2012 equipped with two 735-HP GM engines in need of replacement as well as extensive corrosion issues that required immediate attention.

JOSEFINA

JOSEFINA is a Swan 86 who came to Front Street Shipyard in 2012 for a fast-paced but comprehensive refit. On the outside of the yacht, Front Street Shipyard’s team took on a facelift for Josefina. Her topsides got fresh paint, as did her deck. We sanded and painted JOSEFINA’s bottom to keep her moving through the water more quickly and efficiently.

GULLIVER

GULLIVER is a 74’ custom Frers design built in Italy. When she arrived at Front Street Shipyard, the service team hauled her for a survey and discovered moisture in the hull core.
