A Busy Winter Superyacht Refit Season for Pendennis

November 06, 2014

Pendennis is pleased to announce that the three new construction halls as well as the dry docks have been busy welcoming arrivals for winter refit projects. These include the 75,2-metre mega yacht Northern Star – the largest motor yacht yet to undergo a refit at Pendennis.

The magnificent 65m schooner Adix was hauled out at the beginning of August to begin a comprehensive 8-month refit programme and is now located in the second of Pendennis’ two new 90m construction halls, custom designed for world-class painting and refit projects. Adix is undergoing engineering works which include new generators and main engine, as well as a redesign of the yacht’s deck house, which will be moved further forward combined with a seating area to provide better interaction with the Owner’s accommodation.

Sailing yacht Adix has competed twice in the Pendennis Cup and this will be the fourth time that this classic three-masted schooner has undergone works in Falmouth, with the relationship dating back to 1991 at which time Adix underwent a transom modification and full interior strip out.

The Pendennis dry dock will be occupied by 75.2m motor yacht Northern Star which will be based in the outer dock. Built in 2009, Northern Star is the largest motor yacht yet to undergo a refit at Pendennis. She will be joined by a 56m motor yacht positioned in the inner dock.

The modern J-Class yacht Lionheart also arrived earlier this month for her five-year survey work programme following which she will be competing in the J-Class Regatta taking place from the 23rd-27th June 2015 in Falmouth. This will be the second J-Class Regatta to take place in Falmouth Bay in the past three years.

These three vessels will be undergoing class surveys and paint works with their refits due to be finished next spring in conjunction with the completion of Phase 2 of Pendennis’ major development project, the creation of a non-tidal wet basin ideally positioned for their post-refit commissioning period.

The Yacht Surveyors announce collaboration with owner of 26m De Vries Lentsch new build yacht and Lubeck Yachts

November 06, 2014

The Yacht Surveyors are proud to announce the partnership with the owner of a 26m De Vries Lentsch new build yacht and the German manufacturer, Lubeck Yachts. The 26m De Vries Lentsch yacht was originally commissioned by the Dutch prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who had constructed her as his summer residential cruising yacht. Owing to various circumstances, the yacht is searching for a new owner to be completed.

It is designed as a Long Range Displacement yacht, distinctively sturdy and seaworthy. A steal hull and aluminium superstructure make her the ideal cruising yacht for long trips in the Northern hemisphere as well as in the Mediterranean Sea. Designed and engineered with superyacht standard, the yacht is customized and equipped with up to date technique equipment and can be sailed easily by a couple. The high volume of the yacht together with the layout design allow for spacious living areas that rather spreads an apartment style atmosphere where owners and guests have complete separated areas, so they can enjoy both their privacy and being together in an openly designed dining and living area.

Her classic lines make her stand out against common modern yachts of that size. Taking into account that the yacht is now in the outfitting stage it can be finished with a further personal touch. The building stage currently comprises the first installation of equipment and machinery, a primed exterior as well as the pre-installation of interior spaces. This gentleman’s cruiser is ready to be taken over by a new owner and at the right stage to be changed to the owner’s individual wishes concerning the choice of equipment, exterior colours as well as the layout and style of the yacht’s interior.

The 26m De Vries Lentsch superyacht is an attractive project for an owner who is looking for an individual new build, but doesn’t have to start from the beginning so he can enjoy it earlier and longer.

ODENWALD – The Yacht Surveyors can guide interested clients through the assessment process and provide a detailed surveying according to the owner’s ideas. As a basis this information will be taken to the further development and restart of the project. The company allow for a close relationship with the owner in order to a detailed structural plan developed for subcontractors, shipyard, timing and budgets. Depending on the client’s criterias the yacht can be ready for the summer season 2014.

November 05, 2014

The prominent Italian shipyard, Baglietto, has just released an amazing video presenting their all-new 46m displacement motor yacht Hull 10216. The striking 46m Hull 10216 yacht by Baglietto has been beautifully designed by world-renowned Francesco Paszkowski, who was also responsible for the interior design, in partnership with architect Margherita Casprini.

The sophisticated and outstanding superyacht Hull 10216 can be inserted within Baglietto new product range, yet maintaining the traditional features of Baglietto motor-yachts such as, for example the combination of slightly squared lines with lines being more winding and more gentle. A wide beach club of about 25 square metres characterizes the yacht stern while the bow area represents the location of a 5,50-metre dinghy as well as of a rescue boat.

The interior spaces of Baglietto super yacht Hull 10216 are outstanding, too and are characterized by harmonious contradictions between features inspired by the purest minimalism and by Nature, in a mixture of dark and light colors, thus creating an atmosphere of sophisticated elegance.

This truly graceful explorer yacht offers modern lines whist keeping the elegance of a classic motor yacht. The design brief given by the client was to produce a modern yet classic explorer with elegance and grace. She had to travel the world in complete comfort and be able to handle whatever the sea throws at her.

Adding the huge rounded aft doors to enter the saloons opens the interior to the exterior seamlessly and still offers incredible views when closed. The folding aft hatch / beach club when open offers the owner and guests a vast outdoor entertaining space.

The design is particularly successful as the team managed to merge the clients requests with new ideas such as the opening aft hatch for easy access and embarkation to tenders. They managed to keep the classic feel of an explorer vessel, but with adding the large strip windows and folding balconies for a modern touch.

Younique Yachts – A builder of custom aluminium superyacht tenders, chase-boats and RIB’s of the very best quality

November 04, 2014

The Netherlands-based Younique Yachts produces custom aluminium superyacht tenders, chase-boats, as well as RIB’s of the very best quality. Earlier this year, the company delivered a stylish tender to the impressive 73m CRN mega yacht YALLA (CRN 132).

Younique Yachts listen to what the owner wants, but they believe it is just as important to listen to what the captain, the crew and even the builders of super yachts want.

What the owner wants is what Younique Yachts want to deliver, and because that is so important to them they talk to the captain and the crew before they do anything else. Usability, handling, comfort, performance… They know exactly what the owner’s preferences are. Also, their engineering, building and services are aimed at making the crew’s work as light and comfortable as we can.

But Younique Yachts take it a step further! “’We know the yards that build super yachts. We know about the tenderstore, the cranes and riggings, the facilities, and we make sure our custom work fits the circumstances. During the building process the yard can fit the casco we are working on in the tenderstore, so that the riggings can be adjusted and the cranes can be tested,” explains Egbert Wattel, owner of Younique Yachts.

Younique Yachts talked to the builders of super yachts and found that tenders built in serial production often do not suit their philosophy or the way they build. Many of them prefer to deliver the yacht without the tender. The result: problems with measurements, tight delivery periods and quality issues.

Younique Yachts gets involved even before the first drawings are made. The information they have gathered forms the framework for the design. The architect works within this framework and – taking the owners wishes into consideration – designs a unique boat. The result: a series of life-like 3D visuals that give the owner a clear and precise idea of what will be built.

With this approach and the company’s dedication the final result will be exactly what it needs to be. A perfect fit with the mother yacht, delivered at the agreed time; a tender that sails beautifully, is easy to maintain and – that goes without saying – has a perfect finishing.
