Classic motor yacht relaunched


Malahne Launch Pendennis_1.0

The 165ft classic motor yacht, Malahne, has been relaunched at Pendennis Shipyard, after a meticulous 30-month restoration.

Designed by Charles E Nicholson and built by Camper & Nicholsons in 1937, Malahne is one of a small number of pre-war motor yachts to have survived until the 21st Century.

Having now undergone one of the most ambitious restorations of all time, her original elegance has been reinstated, whilst being modernised to be fully classed by Lloyd’s Register and compliant with the MCA Large Yacht Code (LY3).

The restoration was carried out by Pendennis, with classic yacht expert GL Watson & Co providing the exterior design and the interior design for the crew accommodation.

Pendennis MD, Mike Carr, said: “Over the past two and half years the team here has worked incredibly hard to bring Malahne back to life. Seeing the final transformation from her 1980s form back to her original design, her launch marks a proud moment for everyone involved.”
