The Moonen 94, super yacht Infinity, has arrived in the UK choosing Portsmouth Harbour for her first full refit since being launched in 2007.
The yachts owner has chosen Endeavour Quay as it offers an environment where his captain can employ his chosen specialist contractors as well as using the wide range of marine related businesses on site.
Endeavour Quay located at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour is part of the Marina Projects Group. The former Camper & Nicholson’s yard was renamed Endeavour Quay in 2005.
- 180 ton capacity travel hoist
- Deep water serviced berths for vessels up to 40m LOA
- 35 ton mobile crane
- large, fully serviced undercover boat bays capable of taking vessels up to 40m LOA
- Additional services on site include riggers, engineers, joiners, composite repair specialists, electricians, painters, sail makers and a chandlery.
The facility can handle such vessels safely and confidently, in and out of the water and into the undercover facility.
The 130 ton, 30 metre motor yacht, will be lifted and moved using the yard’s own specialist equipment. Once ashore and safely undercover, the works-list includes a full re-spray, fitting of new stabilisers and a complete engine and electronics survey. The work is expected to last until March 2013.
Captain Alex Cory commented “We are very pleased to have Endeavour Quay as our “home port” this winter. I love the buzz about the place; the different types of boats being worked on, all in a yard with so much British boat building heritage. The Open Yard Policy also enables me to use my own contractors as well as those on site. The excellent reputation of the team and facilities here means I am looking forward to getting the boat ashore and on with the work.”
Infinity joins the likes of:

and the J-class yachts Velsheda and Rainbow who have all recently utilised the facilities in Portsmouth.
