Superyacht Adèle completes refit at Royal Huisman

Royal Huisman has announced that Vitters’ 54m sailing superyacht Adèle, has left its shipyard following an extensive refit by its Huisfit division.

According to Huisfit, Adèle was the first yacht to enter Huisfit’s extended refit hall last season. As well as undertaking a complete mechanical upgrade, Adèle’s refit programme included a complete overhaul of her propulsion, generators, thrusters and various on-board systems, an upgrade and replacement of electronics, a climate control upgrade, and a number of interior and exterior repairs including a new teak deck and repainting the hull a bright red.

Speaking about the decision to refit in Holland and not the Med, Captain Andre Engblom explained, “The Dutch are renowned as boat builders and Royal Huisman is the epitome of a Dutch shipyard. The owners were proud to bring the boat to a yard with such a prestigious history and reputation.”

Captain Engblom also commented on being involved in the original build of the yacht, commenting, “Being involved in the original build at Vitters meant that both Taco [the owner’s project manager] and I had in-depth knowledge of Adèle right down to her foundations.

“This meant that together with Huisfit we had a winning combination; we brought vital past knowledge that Royal Huisman could draw on to carry Adèle elegantly into her future travels.”
