'Best Rebuilt Yacht of 2011'
The award winning Attessa IV, launched in December 2010, is the result of the largest refit in North America to date. The Attessa IV, formally known as Evergreen (launched in 1999), has been declared the ‘Best Rebuilt Yacht of 2011’ at the World Superyacht Awards, May 7th 2011.
“Evergreen”, as she was then known, arrived in North Vancouver at the Washington Yachting Group yard in spring 2007 to begin the “world’s finest & most ambitious refit” explains Chris Toole, Global Senior Product Manager, Awlgrip.
As a part of the extensive re-fit of the Attessa IV approximately 15,000 Gallons of Awlgrip products were utilized. Washington Yachting Group chose Awlgrip’s complete system due to the ease of use, extended recoating intervals and reduced working time, saving numerous hours on this ambitious project.
Another milestone for this project was the extensive use of Awlcraft SE, the revolutionary metallic topcoat system. The fast drying , high opacity product provided an excellent and even custom silver metallic finish on significantly sized surfaces not normally considered suitable for metallics.
Completing the amazing transformation were over 800 gallons of Awlgrip topcoat giving the Attessa IV an unmistakeable finish and performance for an unrivalled masterpiece. Awlgrip is proud to have been such an integral part of this successful project and looks forward to her exciting projects with Washington Yachting Group in the future.
