Bravado back in the water
Motoryacht Bravado is out of our refit facility and back in the water
The yacht went from 525GT back to 499GT. To make this happen, a lot of constructive adjustments had to be made to the yacht.
This makes Bravado one of the largest 499GT projects!
The whole hull and superstructure are painted with an Awlgrip topcoat, all teak decks are refurbished and all machinery underwent a technical overhaul. For example: both main engines, two generators, all pumps and valves and the whole aircon system throughout the whole boat.
After a bit over six months inside, we welcome her back in the water, where she belongs!
