Owner’s Comments:

We purchased the yacht in 2009 and put her through an extensive engineering refit at Rybovich shipyard in Florida.  After this refit we undertook a Pacific crossing from Florida, through the Panama Canal, to South East Asia. We spent three months making the 13,600 nautical mile crossing, stopping along the way (Tahiti, Bora Bora, Fiji, Cairns, Bali, Phuket as a final destination).

The yacht was in need of a complete interior refit and new paint.  Due to changes in our plans, the refit was put on standby and therefore we made very occasional use of the yacht while the regular, necessary maintenance was still being performed. In 2015 we decided to present a new youth to this iconic first Dubois designed superyacht and started a major refit.  She now presents as almost new condition, and is ready to take her new owners all around the world, as she has already done for us.
