S/Y ANTARES – Dismount, mount and align a new main engine

 

The 40 x 8 metres Grand Cayman flagged sailing yacht arrived to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with a blown main engine. Zamakona Yards dismounted and diagnosed the engine. The owner decided to buy a new engine by a different brand and bring it by air. When it arrived, we demounted it to fit it into the engine room of the yacht. The most laborious jobs were the modifications of the bed frame, engine legs, pipes for the new engine, as well as to fabricate a frame for the new heat exchanger and the installment of a new water pump and piping. When everything was in place, we aligned the engine and the yacht returned to its home port, Palma de Mallorca.

 

Good trip.
