In the world of luxury yachts, few things are as impressive as a well-executed refit. In 2022, Derecktor Dania undertook a remarkable transformation of the 190' Abeking & Rasmussen motor yacht 'Amaral' (formerly known as Lady Sheridan). This refit not only enhanced the yacht's appearance but also added special features that elevated its status among the world’s finest yachts.
The refit of the M/Y Amaral was nothing short of extraordinary, encompassing a couple of key improvements:
Bulbous Bow Installation: A bulbous bow, known for its hydrodynamic advantages, was fabricated and installed. This addition enhances fuel efficiency and ensures smoother navigation through various sea conditions.
Full Paint Job: The yacht received a complete paint job, rejuvenating its exterior appearance and ensuring it shone with a fresh, polished look.
The M/Y Amaral, originally built by Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany and launched in 2007, features a steel hull and aluminum superstructure along with teak decks. It is powered by twin diesel Caterpillar engines, making it capable of cruising comfortably at 14 knots and reaching a maximum speed of 16 knots. With a range of up to 4,606 nautical miles from its 118,000-liter fuel tanks at 12 knots, this yacht offers both speed and endurance.
The refit of the M/Y Amaral (ex Lady Sheridan) at Derecktor Dania Beach in 2022 stands as a testament to the luxury yachts industry’s constant pursuit of excellence. With its expanded hull, advanced features, and stunning aesthetics, Amaral is set to provide its passengers with unforgettable experiences on the open seas.
