Monaco Marine is proud to announce that the iconic yacht Vespucci is one of the nominees for the World Superyacht Awards 2019, in Refit/Rebuilt category. The historical research, the carpentry and metal works has been undertaken by our great team who is honored to be rewarded.
“We are so proud of this nomination! What a reward for us and for the owner who believed in our team and our skills!”, says with a large smile Camille Meyer-Warnod, the project manager. M/Y Vespucci was undertook by Monaco Marine Antibes shipyard from November 2016 to July 2017, but she comes back every year since for small works or, as this winter, for a completely hull painting work. “The awards experts were delighted to see how much we preserved this piece of yachting heritage, the excellent quality of the refit and the price of the refit. On every classic yachts, some unscheduled works need always to be undertaken, due to the corrosion and to how much time passes. It happened the same thing on M/Y Vespucci. But the owner understood perfectly and our team provided tailor-made solutions using the same construction techniques that were originally employed”, she adds. M/Y Vespucci was refitted respecting her original design (even the light switches were kept!), with huge amount of works of carpentry, electricity, painting and metal works. Everything was made like-for-like, even the plumbery.

She will show the challenges of refitting a classic yacht with success, maintaining her to the highest standards and preserving the original feature of a classic yacht. Monaco Marine has invested all its know-how and its experience to reach the perfect refit.
