Mega Yacht "Anemos" Heads For a Re-fit

Anemos is a 34m 112ft luxury mega yacht that was built in 1999 by Nautors Swan. German Frers are the masters behind the design and also co-designed the interior with the help from Nauta Yachts. She can accommodate up to 6 guests and has a crew of 4 to attend to there needs. This is a very comfortable yacht to sail and handles well while sailing at a steady 13kts up wind. Her handling and sailing will improve drastically after her carbon rigging re-fit.

Anemos's mast and rig was lifted last week in Valencia Spain for the start of her winter re-fit. Her old rod rigging will be replaced by Future Fibres new RDS carbon system. The mast and spreaders headed back to the Future Fibres factory where the work will get underway to re-fit the mast, boom, spreaders for the new rigging. With the weight of the rod rigging removed and replaced by carbon her performance will improve drastically. The removal of this weight will add weight to the keel which will improve handling, rolling and anchoring.

Later that day she headed back to Palma without her mast and rigging for the winter. In Palma she will get a new teak deck and a few other modifications and upgrades will happen before she travels back to Valencia in the spring for her new rig. Mega Yacht Global will keep you posted on the happenings throughout the re-fit and her sea trials with the new rig in spring.
