SeaDream Yacht Club’s ‘SeaDream I’ is to enter drydock this year for a major refit and refurbishment project costing $10 mill.
This is the second refurbishment project undertaken by SeaDream, following the earlier refit of the ‘SeaDream II’.
‘SeaDream 1‘will have all of her staterooms remodelled. Each one will be stripped back to the bare steel and rebuilt.
New hardware and soft furnishings will be introduced, along with better storage areas that are more functional, the company said.
Her cabins will also be modernised with electrical upgrades, USB/USBC charging ports, Wi-Fi, sensor lighting and 55-inch LED TVs, offering a wide selection of films, TV channels and an infotainment system.
“This project entails a total investment of more than $10 mill and reflects SeaDream’s continued commitment to our guests’ comfort and optimal convenience,” said SeaDream Yacht Club’s Andreas Brynestad.
“During these unprecedented times, as the travel industry navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, we have spared no expense in our mission to deliver an elevated guest experience.
“We believe the time is ripe to put our investment dollars toward the evolution of SeaDream yachting,” he added.
In addition to stateroom upgrades, new Burmese teakwood decking will be installed throughout all of the outside decks, similar to that found on yachts.
New Balinese Dream Beds, sun loungers, and stargazers handcrafted from premium mahogany, complete with Loro Piana Italian upholstery and cushions and bespoke Frette Italian towels will also be fitted on board.
Out on the pool deck, new TUUCI designer parasols and hammocks will be installed, along with two new couples Jacuzzis on Deck 6 forward, overlooking the bow.
The aft marina platform will also be upgraded, while the ship will feature an Instagram wall where guests can create and share their stories with friends and family while on board.
“The expression ‘yachting’ is not only a statement about size, it describes a lifestyle. SeaDream is evolving along with today’s luxury traveller, continuing our focus on attention to detail and the all-important impeccable service that defines yachting,” Brynestad explained.
