About Vava

Being very much a family boat, Vava still finds cherishment from the Owners after 30 Years. In order to make Vava suitable for another period in life the owners decided to have some important issues dealt with: accessibility of the upper deck, new regulations for waste water management and reliable engine control for the years to come. Feadship carefully looked into these “issues” and developed solutions that could be implemented without bringing Vava back to Holland.

The solutions where found in an elevator from the main deck to the upper deck, a new sewage treatment system and a new engine control system. As a spinoff of this work Feadship was also asked to remove the sun deck Jacuzzi, to be replaced by a nice bar and barbeque.
