Feadship rebuild of M/Y Istros underway

ADVERTISEMENT

The 138-foot (42m) Istros was built by Amsterdam Shipyard G. de Vries Lentsch Jr. in 1954 as one of the largest motoryachts built in the Netherlands at that time. It took two and a half years to build the boat for the Greek shipping family Pappadakis.

After a few decades of cruising the Med and an attempted restoration that stalled some years ago because of lack of money, the yacht is now undergoing a complete rebuild at Feadship on behalf of its new owner.

The project began in 2018 with the removal of the superstructure and the stripping and  reconditioning of the hull at a yard in Malta.

Now back in the Netherlands, the hull will be refitted and a new aluminum superstructure will be added. According to Feadship, a new engine room will house twin C18 main engines, a C4.4 diesel generator and a Capstone DC 65 diesel Micro Turbine generator.

A family-oriented, child-friendly interior is being designed for the experienced owner in a Scandinavian style, according to Feadship. Relaunch is expected before the summer of 2020.
