Seraphim V Restoration

Seraphim V is a Lycrest 42 built and launched in 1984. She was originally brought to SHBB to replace the teak decks and paint the topsides and cabin. As with most restoration jobs the scope of works grew as we discovered more and more cosmetic problems with the boat. Over a period of six months we replaced all the existing teak decking, manufactured and installed a larger and more functional swim platform, replaced all existing teak handrails, reconfigured forward cabin, rebuilt aft head into functional shower and modern toilet, rebuilt the galley and replaced all electrical appliances, replaced all existing bronze skin fittings.  We replaced the and gate valves with new 316 stainless steel, major service to both engines and running gear, new fresh water tanks, revamped the electrical systems, new navigation equipment was fitted, topsides and cabin where faired and repainted, all exterior windows and ports were replaced with custom build 316 stainless steel, all interior and exterior varnish was stripped and recoated and new covers and clears were fitted to the flybridge.
The owners undertook the restoration with the firm belief that we were saving them money because they did not have to replace a boat that they were comfortable with and loved with a newer more expensive model.
