Palumbo Superyachts Naples is working on the extensive refit of the 45-metre motor yacht Number Nine, previously named Commitment.
The project is due to be completed in May 2020 and aims to create a more modern vessel, whilst still taking her original De Vries Lentsch naval architecture and exterior design into consideration.
Number Nine was originally built by the Italian yard Carp Navi in 1989 with a length of 37 metres and featured interior designs by the London design studio Bannenberg & Rowell.
Since entering Palumbo Superyachts’ Naples facility back in July 2019, Number Nine has had her stern enhanced by an additional eight metres, bringing her to the current length of 45 metres. With her elongated stern, Number Nine has sufficient space for the installation of a beach club and Jacuzzi. The width and length of her flybridge and light mast will also be extended and along with the engine room complete refurbishment, the shipyard will perform full re-installation of main engines, new generating sets, new electrical system and air conditioning system.
In addition, the job list involves the complete renewal of pipework, propeller shaft line and rudders repositioning, tender lift, navigation systems and the installation of new acoustic insulation.
