Below is an archive of work and articles by Newson Engineering:

Winter 2013/14

Winter 2013/14 was very productive with major overhauls of the 2 kohler generators on "Cheeky Tiger" including fuel injection pump servicing , new injectors, cylinder head removal & servicing. We also carried out the routine services of the 3 mtu main engines.

We also carried out a huge winter work list on "Salu" including changing all of the yachts 30 batteries, top end overhaul of 1 of her Kohler generators, servicing of the bow thruster, new a/c fresh water circulating pump, Acid flushing of the seawater side of the a/c plant, new exhaust blankets, more repairs to her garage door, fitting new Sea-bob charging stations on the upper deck. We also fitted new engine displays in the helm.

We were also very happy to receive a much appreciated testimonial from the new captain, thanks Rob.

We were also very pleased to be contracted to carry out the refit of "MY Bootlegger" now renamed "Ambition" a 10 year old 82' Sunseeker yacht. We spent the best part of 3 months carrying out various repairs & maintenance to her to bring her up to scratch for her summer in Croatia. We carried out de-oxidization of many bilge areas including fuel tank shut off valves, gearbox & engine mounts, sea keeper gyroscopic stabilisers, generator repairs, which we had to split in 2 to remove the exciter for repair, new exhaust blankets, water-maker servicing, cabin & saloon re-configuration, swim platform serving & repairs, hull fittings & sea-cock replacements, pump servicing, fresh, grey & black water tank servicing, bow thruster servicing, battery box modifications, partial replacement of below waterline hoses. We serviced her tender including the Yamaha 50hp outboard. We also carried out passerrelle repairs, general lighting repairs inside & out. Fitted various new equipment such as galley oven, fridges & ice-makers the list is endless. All in all a very satisfying refit by all concerned, thanks to Steve & Luka for all their hard work, along with the band of merry day-workers who helped us get her looking shipshape at the end, special thanks go to Daniel & Nick for organising that.
