Volare – 73’ Aluminum

Ron Holland Design

1998 - Built by Sensation Yachts – New Zealand

VOLARE is a very beautiful twin cockpit, raised saloon sloop with four cabins, three heads and showers, a large galley. A sistership to Ron Holland's personal yacht, originally finished, furnished, and equipped to a very high standard. A great deal of thought and know how has produced an easily handled, easily maintained, high performing, very good looking, elegant and comfortable yacht of classical yet timeless design. 

The owner bought the boat in 2012 and immediately put a repower package out to bid. Drew Lyman came away with the winning bid and the project that has expanded from a repower -  new engine, generator and battery banks in the fall 2012 - to a complete refit with a re-launch spring 2014.

September 2012:  The owner was so pleased with the work, the timeliness, meeting budget and the extensive capacity at Lyman-Morse  that he quickly expanded the project to include the replacing the teak decks, repainting the deck and cabin house Matterhorn white and installing new refrigeration.

 

Jan 2013 - We were told to keep going. We reworked the hydraulics for the winches, furlers and bowthrusters. All tanks were emptied, cleaned and recoated. A 2x7 section of aluminum hull was found to be completely pocked-out so, our metal shop replaced it. The tailing end of the keel also had sustained substantial damage that has been repaired as well.

October 2013 – The next phase includes installing a stern thruster, removing, refinishing and remounting all portlights and hatches.
