Pendennis launches SY Christopher


Pendennis Shipyard’s latest new build has been successfully launched into Falmouth’s waters.

SY Christopher

The sailing yacht Christopher received a customary blessing from Father Jonathan Bielawski from St Mary’s Immaculate Parish Church, before the launch itself.

It marks the conclusion of project that started at the end of 2008, when Pendennis announced the partnership with Ron Holland Design and Palm Beach Yachts International to build a new 46m performance cruising ketch.

Following on from a detailed three-month design and planning phase, the first aluminium kit arrived at the yard in April 2009 at which point the build commenced.
