Following the successful delivery of the refit of the 71m charter yacht Dona Amélia (ex Haida G), Pendennis Plus has this week finished another large vessel refit project, the 62.23m Feadship motor yacht Virginian. One of the first refits undertaken by Devonport Yachts in their Plymouth facility, the Virginian superyacht features naval architecture by renowned De Voogt Naval Architects, with a lovely interior by David Easton.
Built in 1990, the Feadship superyacht Virginian arrived at Pendennis at the beginning of November following the departure of Dona Amélia. The works undertaken on Virginian included general maintenance work, minor interior modifications and an annual survey alongside a full topside repaint and installation of new Naiad Zero Speed stabilisers.
Stephen Hills, Managing Director of Pendennis Plus, discussed the latest developments in the large yachts sector, “We have had an increasing number of enquiries for 60m+ sailing and motor yacht refits and bespoke new builds over the past few months. The experience within the Pendennis Plus team coupled with the world class Falmouth facilities and strong in-house trades are proving to be a winning combination. Pendennis Plus will be undertaking a major sailing yacht refit following the departure of the Virginian yacht.”
