Pendennis Falmouth is a full service facility capable of building custom yachts, as well as undertaking substantial restoration and remodelling projects or routine class/flag refit works. The on-site facilities include a selection of purpose built workshops, offices and storage for our tradespeople and crew, as well as two 75m undercover dry docks, which are 100% environmentally controlled with a state-of-the-art dust extraction system – perfect for large scale superyacht painting.

Two new 90m construction halls have been created alongside an additional 45m hall. The central spine holds hosts project offices and workshops with direct access to the construction bays. An additional four storey building has increased office and workshop space with the addition of an impressive hospitality suite.

Construction of a non-tidal wet basin was completed in May 2015, providing direct seaward access to Pendennis with a holding area before and after their time in the yard, as well as allowing alongside berthing and short refit works for yachts of up to 100m. Hard standing refit space is also available for yachts up to 800t.

The Pendennis Yard Development project is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013. The Department for Communities and Local Government is the managing authority for the European Regional Development Fund Programme, which is one of the funds established by the European Commission to help local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support local businesses and create jobs.

In the latter part of 2018, Pendennis announced a majority share hold in Vilanova Grand Marina, Barcelona, with adjacent land for further development. Conveniently positioned just 45 minutes from the centre of Barcelona and 30 minutes from the city’s international airport – Vilanova Grand Marina provides the perfect base in the heart of the Mediterranean, offering 48 berths for superyachts ranging between 25 and 130 metres including a 24-hour security service. Initial works were completed in the Autumn of 2019 resulting in a superyacht Technical Service Centre trading as Pendennis Vilanova, spanning across a 30,000sqm shipyard equipped with both a 200t and 620t travel hoist for performing repair and maintenance works.

Focused on small to medium scale refits the Pendennis Vilanova Technical Service Centre is run by a dedicated team of 25 tradespeople. The team is comprised of multi-lingual individuals from both the UK and Spain with a wide range of skills from a variety of disciplines including fabrication, electrical, engineering, joinery, paint and exterior outfit. A large proportion of the team based in Vilanova have worked for Pendennis at their home base in Falmouth, UK and bring with them many years of experience and adaptable skills acquired from working within a busy world class superyacht business. The dynamic nature of the team at Pendennis Vilanova allows for them to flex to a client’s individual project requirements.

Pendennis Vilanova and Vilanova Grand Marina work in tandem to provide a complete service for superyachts in the Mediterranean, with yachts benefitting from a secure and protected environment as well as having the option to tap into our multilingual technical support team as and when required. The partnership offers clients the ability to either self-manage or utilise the team of in-house tradespeople during their stay, with many projects choosing a combination of the two options. The proximity of the technical service centre to the marina allows for projects to be carried out both on the facility’s 30,000sqm of hard standing or afloat in the marina itself.

Supporting both the existing Pendennis fleet, as well as new clients seeking assistance, Vilanova has been transformed into a new destination for superyachts to conduct technical works in the Mediterranean, backed up by a renowned and established British refit shipyard.
