The conversion of FPV Norna into Explorer yacht ENIGMA XK took 2,5 years from first preliminary design until completion. Main works performed were as follow :
• Redesign the exterior profil by adding an Owner’s suite forward, an helideck aft and a glass saloon in the middle, keeping the shape of the bridge deck.
• Redesign new accomodations for 12 guests on main deck, upperdeck and bridge deck.
“The conversion of superyacht Enigma XK from a British government-owned Fisheries Protection Vessel designed for service in the roughest of North Atlantic waters, into a comfortable and capable expedition yacht was extremely well done by the La Rochelle-based Atlantic Refit Center, according to the judges.”
