Pendennis operates a custom superyacht build and refit facility in Falmouth, UK and is one of the world’s leading superyacht shipyards, with a heritage spanning over 30 years. The full-service facility is capable of welcoming yachts of up to 100m, undertaking substantial restoration and remodelling projects, or routine class/flag refit works.
To date the company has built over 30 bespoke projects and conducted refit works on a further 250 vessels. The Falmouth facility is home to over 400 highly skilled tradespeople and support staff. In-house experts, from CAD teams to exterior outfitters, joiners, electricians, engineers, fabricators and specialist painters, ensure maximum control and accountability at every stage of the project.
In 2015 Pendennis invested over £22million in a redevelopment programme which saw the yard enhanced with three purpose-built construction halls (the largest of which is 90m) and a 7,564m² enclosed non-tidal wet basin that can accommodate yachts up to 100m LOA, designed to provide direct deep water seaward access to the yard for haul-out, and facilitating short refit works. An additional flexible 150m undercover dry dock provides project space for larger yacht refit programmes, with the complete facility supported by purpose-built modern workshops and offices.
Notable projects have included transformational award-winning refits such as A2 and Aquila, major restorations of classic yachts Malahne and Haida 1929, and recent new builds such as Halekai, Hemisphere, Christopher and Vijonara. The quality of work stands the test of time, with many yachts returning year after year for servicing. Pendennis prides itself on the long-term relationships built with its clients, boasting a dedicated yacht support team which offers a comprehensive, worldwide technical and logistical support network to its fleet.
In 2019, the company opened the Mediterranean Technical Service Centre, Pendennis Vilanova, adjacent to the existing first-class superyacht marina, Vilanova Grand Marina, Barcelona. With a 620 tonne travel hoist and 30,000sqm of hardstanding, the facility brings Pendennis expertise to the heart of the Mediterranean and focuses on small to medium size refit projects. Pendennis Vilanova complements the company’s international Yacht Support services to provide extended global support throughout the life of any superyacht. Pendennis’ customer service, skills, heritage and facilities combine to create a truly memorable, personal and professional refit or custom-build experience.
