Classic Feadship 57m Amara Returns for Refit

By George Bains

Feadship has welcomed back 57.30 metre yacht Amara for an extensive refit project. Amara, first launched by Feadship as Cacique in 1986, was designed by Frits de Voogt with interiors penned by Terence Disdale. The yacht was sold to its current owners in 2020, who have decided to refit Amara to suit their personal preferences and uses in an exciting project.

Amara arrived at the Feadship yard in Makkum, where one of the key aspects of the refit project will be the installation of a new helicopter deck. This will require the removal of this part of the construction, building a new helideck at the yard and placing this entire section onto Amara. Additionally, the teak on the sun deck will be replaced and the foredeck re-laid in teak.

The esteemed Feadship paint experts will apply their talents to the new helideck, the foredeck and a range of other areas. Various interior activities and technical work will also be carried out to return Amara to peak condition as she joins a growing fleet of Feadships placed by owners in the uniquely capable hands of the Feadship Refit and Services division.

As well as being a world-renowned builder of exquisite superyachts, Feadship is also a leading refit and maintenance shipyard. Recent examples of impressive refits include W (ex Larisa) which competed a 10-month project, while the classic Feadship Istros earned international acclaim for her beauty and the eco-friendly ethos that underpinned every aspect of the rebuild.

For owners of Feadship superyachts worldwide, there is no better way to maintain the heritage and quality of their yacht by returning to the prestigious Feadship facilities.
