REFIT OF TARAKENA – 2011 Overview

The Tarakena was originally built by Q-West Boat Builders and launched in 1993.  The boat had a major refit by Q-West in 2011, which included:

  • Significant structural repairs
  • Interior lining upgrades
  • Mechanical repairs
  • Four yearly survey work
  • Complete repaint of the exterior

The original work was to be completed within a very short time, however Q-West was able to accommodate the additional work within the same time frame.
