Full Refit & Hull Extension on the Impervious Yacht
Full Refit & Hull Extension: IMPERVIOUS is a 1995 Real Ships steel-hulled vessel. Over a 4 year period, she came into the yard for a series of extensive interior and exterior refits to meet the cruising needs of this vessel. The initial interior refit was focused on modifying the crew quarters. The newly acquired vessel had damage from salt water-induced corrosion that required immediate attention as well as re-engineering of the exhaust system, upgrading stabilizers, and redoing the entire water system. The following years refit included the installation of a second generator, a much-needed laundry facility, and significant Galley upgrades. The third year's refit was focused on the painting of the entire hull and superstructure. The 4th and most significant refit included an 8-foot steel hull extension, new electronics suite with NMEA 2000 integration to original analog systems, aft deck refit with fiberglass built-ins, full salon and pilothouse refit, new watermaker installation, and AGM battery upgrade.STEEL HULL EXTENSION, ELECTRONICS, GENERATOR
