Bachmann Yachts engaged in major refit of a classic yacht.

Gary Le Cras, Bachmann’s Head of Yachting reports from the shipyard in Pula, Croatia where the company has been contracted by a client to carry out a condition survey and pre-refit flagging exercise on a 1950 built, 45 metre steel yacht.

The contractual package represents the full breadth of Bachmann Yachts service offer, including all the formalities, documentation and class/flag compliance procedures. Gary says he’s happy to be working alongside Mark Robinson of MRMC Superyacht Surveys.

MRMC provide inspection, pre-purchase and condition surveys for vessels over 18 metres (to unlimited tonnages) for potential purchasers and vendors.
