Looking at aspects of the vessel such as structural integrity and safety of systems, right through to cosmetic details, a survey involves an assessment of the critical components, including the hull, the propulsive equipment and the condition of all mechanical gear. Applying a ‘bottom-up’ approach to judge whether the vessel is basically sound encompasses getting the boat out of the water to inspect the hull.
And when the boat to undergo such process is a 52.8m motor yacht then, along with a reputable and professional service, you also need to find a shipyard capable of providing the appropriate lifting facilities.
This is why the survey of this stunning Oceanco superyacht – winner of a prestigious award for highest technical achievement – was assigned to a just as renowned shipyard like Palumbo Superyachts Savona.
Despite being the busiest time of the year, thanks to its very flexible and proactive approach, the yard managed to fit also this job in their already full order book and, using the 820 ton travel lift combined to the expertise of the technical team, once again they successfully achieved yet another task in record time
