In 2017, ICON Yachts successfully relaunched M/Y Virginian, a classic 62-meter Feadship superyacht, originally built in 1990. For this extensive refit project, Virginian's owner chose ICON Yachts to maintain the Feadship pedigree whilst rejuvenating quality and raising comfort levels. Virginian received a complete new hull fairing and paint system from bare and sandblasted steel, as well as a full repaint and partial re-fairing of some of the deckhouse areas. ICON Yachts also upgraded Virginian's exterior equipment and outfitting.
Inside, works included substantial modification of the lower deck interior arrangement to improve guest suite layout and features, as well as a full makeover of the crew pantries and observation lounge. All interior works were carefully coordinated in close partnership with the client’s own interior team. Technical scope included an extensive refit of the electrical system, generators, control systems, full HVAC upgrade including new air handling and fan coil units, Naiad stabilizers, full main engine service and a five-year classification service to Lloyds.
