Specialists Converting Military Vessels Turn To Radio Zeeland DMP and Voyager Maritime

Today more than ever Military Vessels and Workboats are being converted to mega yachts. Impressive Navigation Systems, Custom Glass Panels, State of the Art Entertainment Systems, and of course Security to protect these luxurious yachts from maritime piracy are a must have.

One of the most famous military vessels converted to a luxurious yacht was Christina O. Originally a Canadian naval frigate called the Stormont, Greek ship owner Aristotle Onassis purchased her and spent $4 million to convert her into a luxurious yacht which would be the beginning of a new trend. Celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, John Kennedy and Eva Peron have sailed on Christina O. She was one of the most famous society venues of the mid 20th century: In 1998, Christina O undertook a major refurbishment. This large task, along with the refurbishment and redecoration of gathering spaces, was stunningly accomplished in only 16 months, with more than 1.2 million man-hours and at a cost of more than $50 million.

Military Vessels and Workboats are restored through a complete refurbishment and re-powering by the experts. Numerous are examples of converted yachts; Bart Roberts, a 265-foot expedition yacht, used to perform search-and-rescue missions off the coast of northern Canada was transformed to 20-passenger luxury yacht. The former tug Simson S was also converted to a luxury yacht in 1994 by a shipyard in Malta. The 45m former ice-breaker PROMETEJ was transformed by a famous Italian fashion designer into a spectacular floating retreat and the Titan launched in 1968 by Brooke Marine as a Royal Navy vessel went through an extensive rebuild in 2004, which converted her to a superb yacht with up to 20 guests accommodated in luxury. All of these vessels were converted to prestigious luxury yachts with some external modifications and complete interior decoration.

Radio Zeeland DMP Americas is a developer and manufacturer of leading navigation, automation, monitoring and integrated maritime control systems. They have been around since 1970 and are known for their expertise in Mega Yacht Custom Design and Installation which have catapulted them to the forefront in supporting the conversion of steel vessels into some of the most advanced private yachts afloat.

Today Pirates are more aggressive which has heightened the demand for higher security measures on the luxurious yachts. Radio Zealand also provides state-of-the-art early detection systems. With day/night and infrared gyro-stabilized cameras and motion detection equipment strategically placed, crews are alerted to the presence of an approaching threat. Custom control and monitoring can be satellite linked to corporate security offices, central monitoring and law enforcement personnel to protect these super yachts which many will not leave the port without.

Voyager Maritime Alliance Group allows you to enjoy the same convenience on your yacht as you do relaxing in your home. You can browse, select and play favorite entertainment without ever leaving your seat. Their tabletop or wall mounted touch panel, handheld remote, custom keypad or even your iPhone can allow you to dim lights, adjust the shades, drapes or temperature from anywhere on the yacht. These features take a steel vessel from drab workboat to something right out of a James Bond movie.

The new shipyard near Mina Port in Abu Dhabi, is working on converting two former Dutch navy frigates that will be among the fastest and biggest yachts in the world. Designs for the two vessels provisionally named Swift 141 and Swift 135 for their respective lengths in meters were featured in September 2008 at the Monaco Boat Show and later at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show. They are scheduled to be finished at the end of 2010 which will certainly create even more interest in converting military vessels.
