Summary

Fair Lady first visited our yard in 1996 when we completed extensive engineering works following a survey of the hull and systems by John Winterbotham. At the same time we faithfully preserved the 1920s style in line with the drawings from interior designer John Munford, installing original custom made furniture, fine wooden inlay and Art Nouveau fittings. During this initial refit the hull was found to be in need of a great deal of work and some 30 tonnes of steel was replaced. The interior and all systems were removed and the major work of bringing the hull and integral tanks back to A1 standard was started.

At the end of the ten month refit the yacht still retained all the character of a period vessel featuring all the comforts of a contemporary motor yacht.

She has remained a loyal visitor to the yard with subsequent visits in 2000 and 2006, during which time works included extensive superstructure modifications, new generators, new teak decks and paintwork alongside an MCA survey.

Her most recent set of works saw Fair Lady arrive at Pendennis Palma facility in October 2012 for a 6 month refit which included a 5 year MCA LY1 survey, main engine overhaul, generator overhaul, complete maintenance schedule for all engine room equipment, a full re-paint and an overhaul of her standing rigging.
