Latest Refit Project Hauls Out at Oceania Marine’s North Shipyard
33M Explorer Superyacht, Relentless, has hauled out at Oceania Marine’s North Shipyard located at Port Whangarei, New Zealand for a refit. The yard period is scheduled for 3 months and includes 10 year Lloyd’s survey as well as extensive painting and interior works. With the southern hemisphere winter season approaching the project is housed in Refit Shed D, the premier refit/paint facility at the yard.
The Captain and crew have taken over the crew lounge, offices and meeting rooms in Shed D which are positioned conveniently alongside the vessel at deck level. Visits by the owner and other vessel visitors have a warm and comfortable welcome within the dedicated crew area.
Oceania Marine’s experienced project management team are overseeing the project and their engineering team, assisted by specialist sub-contractors, are undertaking the Lloyd’s survey and other engineering works. Extensive engineering workshops are located inside the yard alongside Shed D for any off-vessel work that needs to be undertaken.
The painting works are being completed by Oceania Marine Coatings and range from abrasive blasting to Superyacht standard finishings. As required containment, extraction and climate control are provided within the fully equipped Shed D.
Oceania Interiors, part of the Oceania Marine Group, are repairing and refurbishing parts of the interior to the highest Superyacht standard. Their modern interiors manufacturing facility is located alongside the shipyard for pre-fabrication and efficient installation.
Oceania Marine operates North and South Shipyards at Port Whangarei and has 3 other projects currently under way (2 yachts and 1 commercial vessel). It also has the newly opened Port Whangarei Marine Centre operating at South Shipyard for smaller vessels, with a 100T travelift.
