Once a salvage tugboat, Asteria is a beautiful, vintage 161’ 1970 Anastassiades & Tsortanides motor yacht. The vessel was rebuilt and converted into a luxury yacht in 2002. The RMK MS North Team will complete a wide range of work on Asteria with the help of Datum Rotating Machinery Services, USA Shrinkwrap, and All Tank Services. Work will include deck targeting, scaffold and containment, media blasting, bottom painting, Propspeed application, driveline and Wartsila seal work, and more.

Outgoing: What is Leaving RMK MS North?
It’s a bittersweet feeling to see superyachts leave the North Yard. We take pride in knowing the vessel has been well cared for and delivered on time back to their owner, and look forward to seeing it again while saying goodbye for now. Vessels that have recently left the yard include:
• Lumiere II: A 204-foot 2010 Benetti left after receiving a new coat of bottom paint, deck targeting, Propspeed, driveline inspection, and welding and fabrication. Datum Rotating Machinery Services and KPT Marine partnered with the RMK MS North Team on this project.
• C-Star: A 197-foot 2006 Lurssen motor yacht recently returned to its owner after receiving deck targeting, bottom paint, Propspeed, driveline inspections, paint repairs, and carpentry work. Datum Rotating Machinery Services and Smooth Sailing assisted the RMK MS North Team in completing these tasks.
• Rhino: A 154’ 1998 Admiral Yacht that received valve and thru-hull replacement for RINA Class with the help of American Marine Mechanics and laminate and paint from the RMK MS North Team.
• Skyfall: A gorgeous 190’ 2010 Trinity recently departed the yard after receiving welding work and fabrication from KPT Marine, davit repairs and load testing with the help of CCS C-Systems Hydraulics, and tank works from Coastal Tank.
