SeaDream Yacht Club has announced that SeaDream I will go into dry dock this year for a major refit and refurbishment.
The US $10-million overhaul of SeaDream I will mirror that performed aboard her sister ship SeaDream II, with the work expected to be completed by the end of January, 2022.
SeaDream I will see all her staterooms remodeled, with every one of them stripped back to the bare steel and rebuilt.
New hardware and soft furnishing will be introduced, along with better storage areas that are more functional.
The cabins will also be modernised with state-of-the-art electrical upgrades, USB/USBC charging ports, Wi-Fi, sensor lighting and 55-inch LED TVs offering a wide selection of movies, TV channels, and an infotainment system.
“This project entails a total investment of more than $10 million and reflects SeaDream’s continued commitment to our guests’ comfort and optimal convenience,” said Andreas Brynestad of SeaDream Yacht Club.
“During these unprecedented times, as the travel industry navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, we have spared no expense in our mission to deliver an elevated guest experience,” he added.
“We believe the time is ripe to put our investment dollars toward the evolution of SeaDream yachting.”
In addition to the stateroom upgrades, new Burmese teakwood decking will be installed throughout all outside decks, in a nod to yachting tradition.
New Balinese Dream Beds, sun loungers, and stargazers handcrafted from premium mahogany, complete with Loro Piana Italian upholstery and cushions and bespoke Frette Italian towels will also be introduced.
Out on the pool deck, there’ll be new TUUCI designer parasols and hammocks, along with two new couples Jacuzzis on Deck 6 forward overlooking the bow.
Other finishing touches include silver ice buckets, embroidered silk pajamas, and GIOBAGNARA serving trays.
The marina platform aft will also be upgraded, while the ship will feature an Instagram wall where guests can create and share their stories with friends and family while onboard.
“The expression ‘yachting’ is not only a statement about size, it describes a lifestyle. SeaDream is evolving along with today’s luxury traveler, continuing our focus on attention to detail and the all-important impeccable service that defines yachting,” said Brynestad.
