The 51m Umbra is the second Sea Axe vessel built by the Dutch Damen Shipyards Group and has been slipped at Oceania Marine’s North Shipyard in Port Whangarei, New Zealand for major upgrades. The aptly named vessel was launched in 2010 and shadows a 57m explorer superyacht.
The project is scheduled to be completed within the next three months and includes a two metre addition to the stern, fitting of a helicopter deck and all equipment as well as an infrastructure for supporting helicopter operations. At the same time a full exterior repaint in owners colours and vessel survey requirements will be done.
Brent Charlesworth, project manager at Oceania Marine explained, “We are working to a very tight schedule and have a lot to do within the timeframe. As a consequence we have put together a work team involving our best workers, sub-contractors and suppliers available from within Port Whangarei.”
The vessel has been transferred from the hardstand into refit/paint shed C where she will stay for the duration of the project. Crew and owners representatives have made themselves comfortable in the newly upgraded crew amenity and work areas with direct access at deck level.
