Ulysses shows her new colours

After a very successful yard period at CompositeWorks’ new facility in La Rochelle, M/Y Ulysses returns to the South of France for the summer season.

The recent owner-requested works, managed by Manta Maritime, include a fully faired and painted hull, polished stainless steel railings on all exterior decks, additional crew cabins and VIP balconies. Also added to its considerable fleet of tenders is a 2,500 bhp HydraSports 5300, the largest outboard-powered centre console boat in the world.

It was a great challenge to complete the scope of work in the extremly tight timeframe available, however it is a testament to the hard work by the team in La Rochelle that the project was completed on time and to budget. Ken Appleby (Project Manager)
