Classic Motor Yacht ‘Fair Lady’ completes refit in Palma

Built in 1928 by Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard, UK, the 42m Fair Lady is a classic steel hulled and teak-decked motor yacht has been a regular visitor to Pendennis over the past 20 years.

The property of a former chairman of the yard she made her initial visit in 1996 when she received a complete renovation to restore her to her former glory.
Pendennis specialises in such restorations, having worked on other classic yachts such as Adela, Shamrock V and Mariette, rejuvenating and respecting their original heritage.
Now the yards outpost in Palma has recently been completed a six month refit of Fair Lady.
This included a 5 year MCA LY1 survey which required substantial engineering work. Shipwrights carried an overhaul of the main engine and generators, accompanied by a complete maintenance schedule for all engine room equipment.
The company brought in several workers from their UK yard to work alongside local sub-contractors to complete the work. This refit was complemented by a full re-paint, for which all topside joinery was removed, refreshed and reinstalled, and overhaul of the standing rigging.
Based inside the STP facility in Palma de Mallorca, Pendennis Palma offers the complete superyacht service package, whether it be a fully project managed refit or more specific works.
