Pendennis confirms busy schedule for winter 2014/15

The three new construction halls and the dry docks at Pendennis have been busy welcoming arrivals for winter refit projects.

The magnificent 65m schooner Adix was hauled out at the beginning of August to begin a comprehensive eight-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.

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 to 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 two of Pendennis' major development project, the creation of a non-tidal wet basin ideally positioned for their post-refit commissioning period.
