32m Lunar Mist Completes Refit

The 32m (105ft) Superyacht Lunar Mist is nearly ready for launching after her extensive 12 month refit at Solent Refit in Southampton. Lunar Mist arrived at Solent Refit following structural work carried out in Palma that had caused serious problems and almost resulted in the owner, Martyn Meade of investment company Hadleigh Partners, writing her off. Solent Refit's project manager, Phil Millard, worked closely with the owner to resolve the structural issues and develop a programme for a major refit to bring the yacht back to her original pristine condition.

She was designed by Bill Tripp and built by Windship Trident in the United States, Lunar Mist's refit included an engineering and internal refit, rig overhaul and a high-quality hull respray. She is now ready to be moved on the transverse rail system to the horizontal slipway, where she will be slipped into the water and the mast will be re-stepped.

After a series of sail trials in the Solent, the Lunar Mist will be signed off and the yacht will start her new world cruising programme.
