Dockside: Motor Yacht Polar Star

The 65m Lurssen explorer yacht, Polar Star, dry-docked with Babcock in October 2017. The work package included: removal of rudders and propellers for survey, inspection of the stern thruster, under water hull preservation, ballast tank cleaning and painting. Survey of plimsol and draught marks were also completed along with replacement of impressed current system and hull anodes and polishing anchor pockets and fairleads.

This was Babcock’s first docking of Polar Star and first opportunity to work with Master Yachts, the Mallorca based managers of the vessel. The communications and co-operation throughout the project with both the crew and management company was excellent.
