British Shipyard Busy with Superyacht Refits

Pendennis the British superyacht shipyard based in Cornwall has concluded its busiest refit season in their 23 year history, with six vessels being finished over recent weeks.

The motoryacht Audacia originally built in 1987 by Feadship has been fitted with a 2 metre stern extension featuring a reconfigured aft curving staircases and underwater lighting.  The vessel also gained a new deck crane and system upgrades including replacement of the A/C system and improvements to her Quantum zero speed stabilizer system.
Refit work was simultaneously undertaken on the schooner Adela, re-launched at the beginning of May.  The schedule of works included updating of her furnishings, an engineering overhaul, new generators, paintwork and electrical work. This was also the first time that Adela has had her impressive mainsail replaced since her rebuild in 1992.
Andromeda La Dea arrived at Falmouth in November 2010 for her ABS 20 year survey following which she has also received portions of new teak deck and a full exterior repainting.
This 1990 Perini Navi motor sailer built in 1990 for Tom Perkins is currently docked alongside the 37 metre explorer vessel Dardanella whilst finishing works are undertaken before her departure which is scheduled for the end of May.
Dardanella’s programme of works included replacement Northern Light generators, a wet room for Bridge Deck to give more flexible pilot berth accommodation, reconfiguration of the Ship’s Office and the addition of a Jacuzzi on the sun deck as well as converting the Owner’s shower to a steamroom.
Also nearing completion is the sailing catamaran Hemisphere, which is due to be unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
Mike Carr, Joint Managing Director at the yard said, “We are very proud of the significant amount of work achieved over the winter months. We have invested heavily in our facilities and people over the past few years and as such are able to take on this range and quantity of projects without compromising on quality.”
