Pendennis has a 30+ year history that includes over 250 refit projects and 30 custom yachts, and prides itself in constantly investing in its world class facilities in Falmouth. The current workforce of over 400 covers all trades in-house, and is constantly rejuvenated by the award winning apprenticeship scheme.
Pendennis has built some of the world’s most prestigious yachts including the impressive catamaran Hemisphere, SY Christopher, SY Rebecca, SY Vijonara, and the unique explorer yacht MY Steel. Pendennis is proud to have completed refits on yachts such as SY Adela, MY Aquila, and major restorations of classic motor yachts such as Malahne and Haida 1929.
At the end of 2018 Pendennis announced a major investment into Vilanova Grand Marina, Barcelona, with plans to build a refit facility alongside the existing first class marina. Opened in 2019 as Pendennis Vilanova, the Technical Service Centre expanded Pendennis' European presence which, combined with its Yacht Support team, provides extended global support throughout the life of any superyacht.
