Unexpected superyacht for test lift

The unexpected superyacht No Comment is expected to be lifted on the Marine Precinct travel lift on Monday.

An unexpected superyacht with bow thruster issues is going to provide the first real test of the Tauranga Marine Precinct’s 350-tonne mobile vessel lift on Monday.

The 47m superyacht will be lifted on Monday. Phil says it weighs close to the posted 350 tonne capacity of the Cimolai lift.

Phil says some of the No Comment’s fuel will be pumped out to lighten it before the lift.

The motor yacht ’No Comment’ was built by Christensen in United States at their Vancouver, WA shipyard in 2006 and delivered to her owner in 2007. There was a refit in 2011.

No Comment’s interior configuration has been designed to accommodate up to 16 guests overnight in 6 cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 9 crew on board in five cabins to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.

No Comment has a fibreglass hull and superstructure with teak decks. No comment was built to American Bureau of Shipping classification society rules.

No comment is powered by 2 MTU 1,800hp diesel engines and propelled by twin propellers. With 54,131 litres fuel tanks she has a maximum range of 4,952 nautical miles. Her water tanks store around 8,328 litres of fresh water.

I know a local boat owner who has been waiting for a phone call to be returned for weeks....his boat will not fit in any of the other local travelifts ( too wide) but only weighs a few tonnes. All he wants to know is if they know when the new travelift will be commissioned and how much it is likely to cost to lift his yacht, and some idea of hardstand costs. Perhaps they haven’tgotthatfarinthebusinessplan. [abridged]
