Utopia back to Feadship for work

ADVERTISEMENT

The 235-foot (71.6m) M/Y Utopia has returned to the yard in Holland for maintenance and technical upgrades. Launched in 2004, this is the second time Utopia has returned to Feadship for a refit.



“The main reason to come to Feadship for a refit is to retain the essence of how the boat was built and ensure she remains of the highest pedigree possible in the world today,” Capt. Kevin Paul Collins said.



This time, the yacht will get a full paint job, including a new coat of underwater antifouling, installation of a new A-Sea shore power convertor, installing a new HMSA sewage treatment plant to meet the latest IMO requirements, and reconditioning the teak decks.



“Although we have covered some 46,000 miles over the past two years, Utopia has been exceptional,” Capt. Collins said. “She has also been well maintained and we could easily have waited another year for this refit. However, when he heard that a dock was available in March, the owner changed his cruising plans and sent us off on our third Atlantic crossing in seven months. It is definitely worth the effort as the owners get a better product. And it is a great experience for me as skipper to take a signature Feadship like this back to the yard. It gives us all a real sense of pride.”
