Having refitted the Feadship Illusion and adding a 5m extension to the stern in 2010, the Pendennis Shipyard is about to undertake a repeat performance.
The 46.5m Feadship Audacia has just arrived at Falmouth Cornwall for similar structural enhancement.
The two metre extension and remodeling of the swim platform with 2 curving stairways and one stern access door will supply substantially more space providing a more accessible and useable recreational area on board.
Restyling of the stern, removal of the forward fashion plates and the addition of underwater lighting will also give the vessel a more contemporary finish.
The shipyard has developed the new structural designs in close collaboration with Joanne de Guardiola Design, Inc. who provided the overall concepts and design styling.
Alongside the structural enhancements the yard will improve performance through the replacement of the existing stabilisers with Quantum zero speed stabilizers.
Work has commenced swiftly with a 3 month programme scheduled – the yacht is due for re-delivery in the middle of April 2011.
Once completed this distinctive yacht hopes to make an impact upon her arrival at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
