M.V. Island Passage

Shipwright Services MV Island Passage
Case Type: Shipwright Services

Tonnage: 490 t

Project Duration: 20 days

Project Background:
The M.V. Island Passage is a purpose built displacement catamaran operating bespoke charter cruises in Auckland, the Bay of Islands and Vanuatu. Many of the staff at Aimex Service Group worked with the vessel owners from inception to transform her from a wreck salvaged in Fiji to this upmarket vessel.  The spacious accommodation, dining and saloon are fitted with rich timber panelling to create a luxurious and comfortable experience.

Project Scope:

  • Many of Aimex Service Group staff  were responsible for the internal fit-out including alterations, refinements, cabin layout and design as part of larger whole-boat construction / refit
  • Each cabin is unique and hand-crafted
  • High-quality finish with all natural timbers used 
  • Installation of noise insulation
  • Ease of maintenance considered throughout design and fabrication
  • Refit and update of the library, galley and cabins

Project Outcome:
This vessel is very special to Aimex Service Group as are the owners who continue to be a repeat client. We work closely with the client to be innovative in order to meet the needs of their market. During the vessel’s off-season we undertake any temporary modifications or general maintenance required.
