The 40 metre Dubois sloop Tenaz has left the Pendennis yard in Falmouth and is heading to the Mediterranean for a full season of racing.  She will be in action at the Super yacht Cup crewed by a team drawn from both the yard and the owners crew a along with a few special guests. The newly refurbished yacht is also being considered for charter throughout the summer in the Mediterranean and the winter in the Caribbean.

Originally launched by the yard back in 1996 she was put to good use on the racing circuit.  Following an extensive world cruise with her new owner and his family, it was decided to bring the yacht back to Cornwall so those that built her could make her better than new again.  Taking advantage of the yards history with the yacht the original new build project manager was assigned the task of, in the words of the owner “putting the yacht back to how she was when launched”.

This involved a top to bottom, interior and exterior repaint, refurbishment of the teak decks, general interior re-touching, main engine exhaust rebuild, maintenance and updating of rigging and systems and general electrical and mechanical refurbishment.

Following the completion of the refit the owner commented “We have been very impressed with the Pendennis commitment to quality and to supporting their owners. We first started working with them when we were in Thailand and Malaysia where they flew staff out to assist us with some issues we had. Also in Singapore one of the engineers who worked on Tenaz when she was being built flew in to help with a steering issue. This focus on customer satisfaction coupled with the continuity of their staff made bringing Tenaz back home the natural choice.
