The Yard Brisbane (TYB), will welcome 64.85-metre S/Y Adix for a four-month refit and Lloyds survey period in September 2019.
“Adix is a truly iconic yacht and we are delighted to have her visit us,” says Mark Phelps, International Development Manager at TYB.
Built in Spain in 1984, Adix is a distinctive classic three-masted schooner re-designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and will be cruising around the South Pacific in the run up to the America’s Cup in Auckland in 2021. The yacht has a long term refit relationship with British yard Pendennis, but her soujourn to the South Pacific had the team seeking a regional refit provider who could deliver the same quality service that Adix has always enjoyed.
Thanks to the impressive infrastructure and can-do attitude on offer, TYB proved the ideal solution for Adix’s long-term captain Paul Goss. “We chose The Yard Brisbane as we needed a facility that could provide us with both superyacht expertise and the space and freedom to conduct our work,” says Goss, who stresses the importance of the role of Adix’s crew in refit projects to ensure a successful result. “Some yards don’t like the crew to come to the yard, but TYB welcomed our involvement and that was very important to us.”
