Repair and Refit

With the completion of our new factory a long term plan has been made possible which is to blend our new builds with refit work. We are in an ideal position to utilise all the features which make us successful in building new boats.

    Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders designed and built a new fully enclosed flybridge for this vessel, along with installing new electronics and laying new teak on the boarding platform. Pintari was then given a full exterior repaint and antifoul. Many other minor upgrades and alterations were also completed at this time.

    Some comments from Pintari's owner:

    'In 2007 it was time for our 20 year old Salthouse launch to receive a bit of a facelift… all the work done was of an impeccably high standard, Simon, Lloyd and their tradesmen designed and built a modification that suits the original design and has received complimentary review from the most critical boaties. Several people have not recognised Pintari as the same boat after she came out of Lloyd's shed.

    The best thing about the whole process was the expertise and positive attitude Lloyd and Simon applied to every single issue. It always felt as they were looking after their own boat whenever a decision had to be made.

    We enjoyed the experience and are totally satisfied with the outcome that has been achieved.

    If any owners are looking at refurbishment work and want to be excited rather than fearful at the prospect we recommend they contact Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders.'

    Fidelus Fidelus

    Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders very first refit, Fidelis was one of the most famous yachts ever launched in New Zealand. This classic 60 foot Vic Speight and Knud Reimers design had an outstanding race history which included winning the Auckland to Suva and the Sydney to Hobart races in 1966. Fidelis was extensively refitted by Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders in 1987 to transform her from a stripped out ocean racer to one of the fastest and most luxurious passage-makers of her day. Work included major interior and exterior modifications including new teak decks and a full repaint.
