M.Y Shemara – First Installment of our report

SEC-Marine are extremely pleased to be able to announce our involvement in the historically significant 1938, 65M Classic Motor Yacht M.Y Shemara, refit project.

It has been a genuine pleasure to be involved with this fantastic project from its inception, since its arrival in Portchester early in 2011.  Our Technical Director has been a key member of the small but tight-knit Project Team of highly skilled Engineers, Designers & Managers.

SEC-Marine have been Shemara’s sole supplier of Electrical and Electronic systems consultancy throughout.  We have specified all the purely Electrical/Electronic Systems, and advised the Project Team on the specification of the Electro-Mechanical Systems.

Upon the completion of the project’s systems specification, load balances and preliminary AC/DC single line diagrams, we embarked on the detail design phase, liaising with the major systems suppliers to gather all the required outside guidance, whilst ensuring the required system interfaces were in place to fully realise the potential functionality and remaining compliant with Classification society and flag state regulations (DNV and UK MCA respectively).

The Interior outfit is of the highest super yacht quality, but is classically understated and as such the technology is to be heard (or felt), but not seen- an incredible challenge for our multi skilled design team.

Wheel House - Looking Fwd (2)The Classic Yacht aesthetic has been retained inside and out, but beneath the skin is a modern high tech Super yacht, and at the heart of this is an adaptable and economical Diesel-Electric propulsion system, with 1.5 Mega Watt of power available to the two 650KW Rolls Royce Azimuth propulsion thrusters, and this alongside the Rolls Royce variable pitch bow thruster make for an extremely maneuverable vessel that belies her Imposing presence.

Stability is ensured by fully retractable active-fin Stabilisers, Station keeping is by a fully integrated Dynamic Positioning System, a significant system upgrade to the regular super yacht outfit, but one that perfectly ties together the enhanced functionally of the propulsion system.

Check out the next installment, for details on the Installation phase.
