STP Shipyard Palma performed the largest lifting to date in the Balearics: 66.7m of S/Y Hetairos
Last Thursday at 8 in the morning began the preparations in STP Shipyard Palma to lift the largest sailingyacht to date in the Balearics. The travelift team, divers, sailors, and S/Y Hetairos crew coordinated this complex hoist that was performed with absolute precision thanks to the shipyard’s team that surprisingly made the move with ease between the scaffolding, tents, and masts that were in the way between the pit and the shoring place.
With 66.7m in length, this fabulous ketch came out of the water to have a hull revision and maintenance work, and its plans are to go back in the water in a few days. Now it is in place at the shipyard offering a breathtaking view to all the passers by.
STP Shipyard stands as a major center in Europe for refit and maintenance. It specializes in yachts of all sizes and types, thanks to experienced contractors who are authorized to operate in the shipyard’s facilities.
S/Y Hetairos was built by Baltic Yachts and was launched in May of 2011, but the design process began four years before by the hands of Reichel/Pugh naval architects. During her construction S/Y Hetairos was called a Panamax Project because it is a term applied to vessels with maximum allowable size to pass through the Panama Canal, and in the case of Hetairos referred to the maximum height of the mast: 62.5m.
This is because the premise when building it was to create the fastest and largest superyacht able to pass through the Panama Canal.
Its two masts and the striking boom gives it a classic look that blends perfectly with its cutting edge technology. S/Y Hetairos has the capacity to accomodate 10 guests amd 10 crew members disdributed in 8 cabins plus the main owner’s cabin and the captain’s cabin.
