Extensive development of the site started in February 2013, and has seen the previous singular construction hall replaced with two 90m halls alongside a further 45m double-width hall.

The project offices have also been expanded, along with workshop space and crew facilities.

Joint MD, Mike Carr, said: “Since the last major yard expansion, which included the improvement of our dry dock facilities in 2004, the superyacht industry has changed dramatically.

“Over the past five years in particular, Pendennis has seen an increasing demand for winter refits as well as an escalation in the average length of yachts globally. Henk (Wiekens) and I recognised that we needed to improve our facilities to cater to this, and so the development plans have been a key consideration for some time.”

Further developments and improvements are now underway at the yard, in a quest to turn Pendennis into “one of the most impressive superyacht facilities in the world”. The next phase is due for completion in 2015.
