Renamed as M5, Mirabella V Arrives for Refit in the UK

Built as Mirabella V for Joe Vittoria the worlds largest slooped rigged superyacht was sold recently to an owner who has renamed her M5.

Assembling a team that includes Naval Archeitects Ron Holland Design and Interior Designers Redman Whiteley Dixon the yacht is to be refitted at the Pendennis Shipyard in Falmouth where she has now arrived

During the visit the stern will be redesigned and extended by 3m. Alongside this other exterior restyling work will include the installation of a side boarding platform. 

Green Marine from Lymington in the UK will undertake structural fabrication of the composite stern, with support from structural engineers High Modulus Europe Ltd. 

The full extent of the engineering commission will involve replacing the main engines, generators, switchboards and sewage treatment plant along with an upgrade of the air conditioning system, electrics and entertainment system.

A 10 year DNV survey will complement these works. A full hull repaint with mast and rig overhaul completes the list of major structural tasks. 

The interior aspects of the refit will see the main and lower decks undergo a complete restyle.  The main deck in particular will be completely transformed once all joinery is replaced to complement the new interior design.

The yacht’s captain, Rocka Romke, said of the British-based team: “The team assembled for the works are testament to the quality of the workforce and facilities available in the UK.  I believe the collaboration between these parties will elevate M5 to be one of the most impressive and original sailing yachts in the world both in structure and style.”
