Lusben completes refit of Explorer superyacht Lady Jade


Refit specialist Lusben has completed work on the 41m (135ft) Explorer superyacht Lady Jade for its unnamed Swiss owner.

The refit included a 6m extension at Alia Yachts in Antalya designed by designed by Stefano Patrovich. The extension involved major structural modification to the aft section of the hull, where the quarter boards have been reduced in size to give the aft cockpit a more open feel.

The ceiling of the yacht’s flybridge has also been extended in length by 1m, offering more shade in the outdoor bar and dining area. The work, at the Viareggio shipyard, on Italy’s northwest coast,  also included repainting the hull and interior refurbishment. Painting the hull has returned Lady Jade to her original blue colour scheme

Changes to the layout, in addition to the flybridge, include the entire main and lower decks. The refit involved new furnishings and decor for the full-beam owner’s suite located forward on the main deck. The vessel’s four guest cabins and the VIP cabin on the lower deck were also refurbished using a palette of dark colours and black lacquer.

The installation of underwater lights along the full length of the boat’s hull is said to give the yacht a more distinctive personality.

According to Lusben: “The motor yacht now has a new look after a complete repaint, a metalwork modification on the ceiling of the sundeck and to the aft section of the hull to give it a sleeker and more contemporary style, and a new layout and decor for all the interiors designed by Stefano Pastrovich.” 

The vessel arrived at the Viareggio shipyard in October 2022. She was built in 2008 by Brazilian yacht maker Inace Yachts.
