Refit Process

TOP FACILITIES

VAVA II’s refit was brought forward at short notice, but despite a busy schedule AMELS were able to accommodate the 96-metre yacht in the recently commissioned 200-metre, fully climate-controlled covered drydock. Ideal for paintwork, it’s the largest and best equipped in Holland, with deepwater direct access to the North Sea. Explore 360-degree views of the yard.

FAIR AND FAST

When it comes to top expertise from hot works to furniture finishes, AMELS delivered. Even as issues arose outside the challenging scope of works, AMELS’ short lines of communication and can-do mentality ensured straightforward solutions completed within the original timescale. We work together as a team with our clients.

GREAT STAY & WELCOMING HOST

VAVA II’s crew of over 40 enjoyed ideal accommodation in one block of apartments overlooking the sea. With lots to see and do and great sports facilities, Vlissingen proved an enjoyable, active and friendly location. With the AMELS App, crews have a great tool to communicate and find local info.

MOTIVATED BY QUALITY

“I’d certainly give AMELS a strong 9 out of 10,” commented VAVA II Technical Superintendent Bart Loughe. “It went smoothly, there was a lot of work, and it was on budget.” As the redelivered boat left the yard looking like brand new again, the Owner’s team remarked on the AMELS ethos – a great atmosphere where everybody plays an important role in achieving the very highest quality result.
