Monaco Marine La Ciotat is undertaking a significant refit on M/Y Seahorse, originally launched by Amels in 1999. Class survey, interior refit, paint work... all Monaco Marine departments are involved to upgrade and ensure that Seahorse comes back with the highest luxury standards.
Since November 2018, M/Y Seahorse has been in La Ciotat shipyard for a major refit. Built by Amels in Netherlands in 1999, the yacht was refitted in 2016, but the new owner has decided to give his yacht some well-deserved pampering and various other upgrades. The refit project will span across the next three months to ensure that Seahorse leaves the yard in peak condition. The shipyard team, Ocean Independence, the management company, and the crew are all working together to carry out the refit.
The range of works include the 20-year Lloyd's survey, some general maintenance, a one-meter extension on the aft, a completely new paintjob and a comprehensive interior makeover. “It is a genuine pleasure to bring Seahorse to Monaco Marine La Ciotat, explains Nicolas Genelot, La Ciotat general manager. The works we will perform bring together expertise from all departments, from mechanical to refit and renovation, in order to maintain Seahorse unique character”. Three project managers and two coordinators are working on this project. The paint shed is one of the main assets of the shipyard and allows us to carry out some advanced paint works.
