As one of the first vessels to visit our Pendennis Palma refit facility for minor works in 2011, Pendennis was delighted to then welcome Gloria to our main facility in the UK.
The Jongert steel schooner Gloria was hauled out in July 2012, during the Pendennis Cup, to commence a three month refit period in Falmouth. During this refit major work was undertaken on Gloria’s rigging with the assistance of Tim Haynes Ltd: her rig was completely stripped of fittings, NDT’d, painted and new standing rigging installed. A complete new teak deck was also fitted which included replacing some areas of teak cladding on the superstructure. All deck hardware was stripped and serviced with some replacements made, leaving Gloria as good as new from the deck up.
Alongside these exterior upgrades, engineering works were carried out as well as an overhaul of the yacht’s drive train, air conditioning & refrigeration plants service, and fitting keel access hatches for the fuel tank. The final task was a new application of antifoul before the yacht was re-launched ahead of her journey down to the Mediterranean.
