REFURBISHMENT 

Wairakei II after the war had several owners, she was always well maintained. She came to us in 2012 after  a change of ownership for maintenance.  Discussions soon started about re-designing her interior which was cramped for  what is a rather large vessel. Working alongside Heather Dennett Interiors  a full refit of her forward end took place in the following winter 2013/14
