Re: Orana 44 Feedback

This boat came to our yard after commissioning and I am really surprised that the owner and the boat could do lt up to Thailand..
She was in terrible shape; the owner claimed the full replacement of the boat. After long debates beetween the owner, FP and Austrian dealer who sold the boat, we could just do what FP has approved under warranty as the owner didn't want to pay for the rest. I believe there have been several court cases on the matter but don't know the outcome. Finally the owner decided to leave for Thailand althought we told him to not to do so. I had heard that the owner had an issue with Somalian pirates as well on his way but he's got away with this. (the pirates must have seen in which conditions the boat was and let him go.. )

The owner was a first time boater and overall a sad story..

On the other hand having seen number 1 Orana and number 1 Helia, it's hard to believe that they both came out from the same manufacturer..
