In 2021 Royal Huisman Shipyard and Huisfit were commissioned another restoration project, the rebuilding of the 1930’s yacht Atlantide, a 37m /122ft classic motorsailer owned by the same client.
Subsequently this valued customer assigned us again to build a Portobox for this esteemed project. The same high standards were applied to this unit. The basis being a double doors, 40ft high cube container which was transformed into a workshop and storage space.
First the container was completely insulated and fitted with anti-slip flooring. The layout was divided into three sections. One side was set up as a workshop with a stainless steel workbench, the middle was furnished with a self-made racking system with boxes for spare parts, the other end serves as a garage for two tenders with an extendable lifting beam with trolley to facilitate the loading and unloading of the boats.
The entire Portobox was fitted with 230V and equipped with a Victron Auto Transformer to regulate the power from 115V to 230V. A portable Honda 7KW generator provides flexible energy on board or at shore.
An Airco Hotspot Energy for both 115V and 230V ensures a comfortable working climate. The Portobox was again equipped with BOTT interior and LED lighting. A Dometic CRX140 fridge fits nicely into the whole design.
The Portobox was painted in a colour by customers choice.
