Superyacht Builder Pendennis has announced the completion of the Phase-1 of the yard development plan for its facility in Falmouth, UK.
Works started in February 2013 and have seen the previous one main construction hall replaced with two 90m halls alongside a further 45m hall. These complements the existing 150m dry-dock and provide more flexible space for refit and new build projects at the 6.5 acre site. The buildings phase will be completed this month with the addition of a four-storey workshop/office/hospitality complex.
The next part of the two-phase development plan is already underway with the creation of marine-based facilities. An adjustable depth wet-basin will be created directly in front of the yard, with the longest arm of the basin planned to be 100m thereby enabling several visiting yachts, or larger 60m+ projects, to be based directly alongside before and after their refit or build periods at Pendennis.
This next phase is due to be completed in Spring 2015.
In addition, Pendennis has acquired a 600 tonne travel hoist to cater to the trend of refitting larger yachts at Pendennis. The machine was used to lift SY Mariette who is at the yard for minor engineering works and anti-foul in preparation for defending her Pendennis Cup title at the end of May.
