Trimline completes refurb work on Black Watch; now on to Balmoral

Trimline completes refurb work on Black Watch; now on to Balmoral
Trimline recently completed refurbishment work on Fred Olsen’s Black Watch.

The work to the 28,000gt required Trimline’s joiners to hand-make a nine-metre photo display unit from lightweight aluminium nomex, cherry laminate and solid cherry edging.

Creating the display unit in under five weeks, the Southampton-based marine interior refurbishment specialist was also tasked with making a number of bespoke display cabinets to complement the large photo display unit.

A team of fitters from Trimline sailed on board the vessel from Newcastle to Hamburg while completing the installation of the photo display unit.

'Trimline was able to work to a very specific brief, in a very short time frame, and the quality of workmanship has been excellent,' said Sarah Stebbings, deputy hotel operations director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

Fred. Olsen has engaged Trimline to undertake further refurbishment work on Balmoral, including the creation of another bespoke photo display unit and the removal and replacement of bulkheads, deck heads, cabinet refurbishment and a refresh of the photo kiosk.
