Refit of Feadship The Highlander proceeding well

Derecktor Florida's refit of the classic 150' Feadship The Highlander is proceeding on time and on budget, and is scheduled for launching in late November. The hull extension is completed and is now in the capable hands of the painters. Re-furbishment of the engine room, including the addition of Quantum zero-speed stabilizers, is proceeding well and systems are starting to come on-line. The new interior, designed in its entirety by the owners while honoring some of the original concepts, will be striking and is well under way.

​The galley has been re-located to the upper deck as part of the interior refit and this has provided the yard with the opportunity to interact with old friends – the dumb waiter assembly was constructed in Meppel, Holland by Lift-Emotion B.V. and installed by their technicians in the yard. This was the yard's first opportunity to work with Lift-Emotion since the completion of the construction of Cakewalk V in 2010.
