The Perini Navi ketch Ellen has recently completed her service and refit at the Perini Navi facility in Viareggio, the Perini Navi team report. Built and designed in her entirety by Perini Navi, she accommodates up to nine guests on board as well as a crew of six.

Amongst the extensive work list was a restoration of her classic interiors, as well as new paint coatings and exterior cosmetic upgrades throughout. In addition, every mechanical and electrical system underwent a major check out and reconditioning.

Ellen’s Captain, Pablo Pireñack, comments on his experience with the Perini Navi team. He says, “You get a call to look at a boat where the refit is proving more extensive than the pre-purchase assessment said it would be. Indeed you see serious works are needed, that’s what you see. But, as the refit progress what do you find? You find a group of people that are passionate about what they do, a group of people with the best human qualities, respect, honesty and pride in their work, the proper advice in moments of technical difficulties in the context of what the owner and captain need. If I had to choose one word to define this refit period it is Trust.”

Ellen will go on to cruise the Mediterranean throughout the summer season.
