Owner got very disappointed and regret. He is living in Canada he has few weeks in Turkey for cruising and enjoying his boat but because of these unfortunate case he missed the season .After all he started to search a new refit company who is depandaple and capable of finalizing the project with a very high quality and on time. After a deep and long search, he contacted us directly and ask for a meeting. After first meeting at Marina where the boat was staying on shore, everybody was clear that saving of M/Y Lara will be done by KRM yacht refit & repair .
