The splendid 38-metre sailing yacht Gloria has recently completed her three month refit at Pendennis in Falmouth. Built by Jongert in 1985, Gloria superyacht also went through some minor works at Pendennis Palma refit facility in 2011.
In a relatively short period some substantial work has been undertaken. Before the yacht was hauled her masts were removed so that major work could commence on superyacht Gloria’s rigging with the assistance of Tim Haynes Ltd: her rig was completely stripped of fittings, NDT’d, painted and new standing rigging installed. A complete new teak deck was also fitted which included replacing some areas of teak cladding on the superstructure. All deck hardware has been stripped and serviced with some replacements made, leaving Gloria as good as new from the deck up.
Alongside these exterior upgrades, engineering works were carried out as well as an overhaul of the yacht’s drive train, air conditioning & refrigeration plants service, and fitting keel access hatches for the fuel tank. The final task was a new application of antifoul before the yacht was re-launched early October. Luxury yacht Gloria is currently based in Port Pendennis Marina for the final completion of minor work ahead of her journey down to the Mediterranean.
James Box, Captain of Gloria yacht, explained the choice of Pendennis for the refit: “The Owner of Gloria was keen to support British industry and as such booked the refit slot with Pendennis. The end result has shown that the quality of workmanship and level of professionalism have been second to none and proved the yard’s world-class standards in superyacht refit”.
