Pendennis Shipyard has won a second international award for the refit of the 85.6m superyacht ‘Aquila’.

Aquila was named Best Refit at the International Superyacht Society (ISS) awards in Fort Lauderdale, having previously been awarded Best Refit at the World Superyacht Awards in May.

It is believed that the project is the largest superyacht refit programme ever to be undertaken in the UK, with almost 800sqm of interior and exterior space upgraded and all interior technology systems modernised during a 12-month period at the Falmouth yard.

Captain Darryl Chalmers said: “The fact that this extensive project was delivered on time and to our Owners satisfaction is testament to the skill and professionalism of all at Pendennis Shipyard and their sub-contractors.

“From the crew’s perspective, it was a joy to work with a shipyard that strived to get the job done right first time, and to the highest standards.”
