Putty VI is an axplorer yacht built by Palmer Johnson in 1996 and is one of Vripacks most famous designs.
Since her lauch Putty VI has proven her worth having voyaged almost 200,000 trouble free miles including the honor of being the first motor yacht to circumnavigate the North American Continent unaided, with a successful transit of the North West Passage from East to West in 2001. The vessel is of excellent construction and engineering and is known to be extremely quiet and vibration free. In 2007 she received a mayor overhaul and rebuild, in the Netherlands.
During the refit, a complete new air-conditioning plant was placed in the engine room, all fan coil units were serviced and modified with mufflers in the fresh air system, new zero speed stabilizers were mounted and the teak decks were completely overhauled and 100% newly caulked.
Putty VI’s sundeck was completely modified with new bulwarks, new life raft stowage, teak cap rails and a sun awning. For even more pleasure a sun pad, Jacuzzi, bar with grill, icemaker and a fridge were included.
The owners quarters, including the bedroom and bathroom, VIP and guest cabins were completely rebuilt. Extra steam showers were added, all areas have been repainted and the ceilings were renewed. To finalize the refit, Putty VI received a complete paintjob. The modifications mentioned above are just a small handful of the total refit.
Due to the vessel's large fuel capacity she is able to offer extended cruising.
