Refit of Wanderer - 2011

MV Milford Wanderer is a 30metre overnight tourist vessel operating from Milford Sound.  The vessels previous operation was centred on low cost ship board accommodation while providing nature tours. 

The intent for the refurbishment of the vesssel was to not only complete timely repairs of the vessel systems but also to upgrade and reconfigure the vessels interior layout to enable the vessel to provide a greater more upmarket experience.

The upgrade reduced passenger numbers, providing better accomodation in the lower cabins, increasing access to toilet and shower facilities and upgrading the vessels ventilation and heating systems.

Q-West co-ordinated and project managed the entire refurbishment, which included:

  • Complete repaint (interior and exterior)
  • Structural modifications
  • Mechanical survey work
  • Extensive electrical modifications
  • Ventilation system upgrade
  • Interior lining upgrade
