We are experiencing higher than unusual enquiries for the winter refit work and we put this down to our growing reputation.
(PRWEB UK) 5 July 2011
Works carried out for full Lloyds compliance included full shaft line and engine alignment, the modification of shaft brackets, replacement of cutlass bearings and flexible coupling rubbers, the cutting of holes in the lower hull and removal of gearboxes and a total overhaul.
Additional work included main engines servicing and overhaul, wheel house electronics, electrical work including the installation of Simon System tank monitoring package, external paint and varnish works, interior furnishings, AV/IT system up-grades throughout, new galley equipment install, carpentry and teak deck works, general engineering and pipework, generator service, hydraulics and safety equipment.
Nic Clarke, MD of PURE, said of the refit: “This was a complex project as there were areas that would not have passed Lloyds survey and so we had to address these once they had been identified through carrying out the survey schedule. While those compliance issues were taken care of, the captain took the opportunity of the extended yard period to maximise the use of his time here. A full up-grade of the vessel in all areas was therefore also completed in order to keep her in pristine condition for the owner and charter guests.”
Regarding how the future is looking for PURE, he continued: “We expect a quiet summer, as usual, as yachts are doing what they were designed for – sailing the seas and being enjoyed by their owners. However we do have a project to occupy us through the summer months, and are also experiencing higher than unusual enquiries for the winter refit work. We put this down PURE’s growing reputation and also yachts are taking advantage of the later Easter this year and are staying on the other side of the Atlantic longer than usual, hence missing the pre-summer season work period this year and need for extended works end of summer season.”
