Winter 2018 – SY PALMIRA
We are managing the winter refit of SY PALMIRA (ex SALPERTON IV). She is a 45m Dubois design built at Fitzroy Yachts, in New Zealand.
It has been 2 months since the yacht arrived at STP for an extensive refit, including her Lloyds 10-year Surveys.
The worklist is extensive, with around 500 different works including 35 contractors.
A pre refit Sea trial was performed, which included a noise & vibration analysis, main engine and exhaust measurements along with alignment readings and rig assessment. These trials and checks are essential before and after the refit.
The refit quoting system is intense, we are requesting and studying numerous quotations from different contractors for each job. Our aim is to find the right solution for every work and reduce the cost of the project for our client.
Technical, commercial and quality bid evaluations are carried out for each scope of work, ensuring that the most suitable contractor is chosen based on the requirements of the task at hand and the owners specifications.
