Superyacht wins refit honor

The Attessa IV, which was launched in December, was named the Best Rebuilt Yacht of 2011 at the World Superyacht Awards, which were held May 7.

Evergreen, as she was then known, arrived in North Vancouver, British Columbia, at the Washington Yachting Group yard in spring 2007 to begin the “world’s finest and most ambitious refit,” said Chris Toole, global senior product manager at Awlgrip.

The transformation took more than three years to complete and it included lengthening the vessel from 300 to 330 feet.

As part of the extensive refit, the coatings of the Attessa IV were tested extensively for their integrity and, in many cases, removal before the application of about 15,000 gallons of Awlgrip products, including 4,500 gallons of Awlgrip primers.
