STP Shipyard in Palma dismantled the 82m mast of the 191-foot (58m) S/Y Kokomo, using a 500-ton crane. About 15 people including the yacht’s crew, rope and rigging men, and the crane masters worked together to remove the entire mast.
“Everything was very smooth and very efficient, thanks to a very professional team,” Capt. Adam Painter said in a press statement.
The yacht was launched in New Zealand in 2010 and is conducting its five-year refit of the mast. During its expected five-month stay in the yard, Kokomo will also receive a paint job of the superstructure, as well as various engineering works. When finished, S/Y Kokomo is expected to travel to the the Caribbean for the remainder of the winter.
