The second Pendennis-built Hoek Truly Classic 128’ sailing yacht was launched last Friday (Aug 7) and entered the shipyard’s adjacent non-tidal wet basin for rig stepping and commissioning prior to sea trials.

The classically-styled superyacht, christened Halekai, has been in build in Falmouth to the exterior and interior design of world-renowned Hoek Design Naval Architects and with MCM as owners’ representative.

The fourth hull in the TC128 series, known for their distinctive classic hull shape and above-water styling combined with a modern underwater configuration, brought together the same experienced build team associated with the award-winning 2018 delivery SY Vijonara.

Interior styling for SY Halekai has been curated by Ken Fulk Inc of New York, inspired by the unique history and culture of Hawaii. Halekai translates to “home on the sea”, a fitting name for this bespoke-built yacht destined to sail around the world with her experienced Owners.
