The sailing catamaran Hemisphere is one of Pendennis Shipyard’s most unique and imposing launches in our 25 year history. As the largest privately owned vessel of her type in the world she turns heads due to her sheer scale, but equally impressive is the level of luxurious detail within her interior spaces and range of on-board facilities. Pendennis partnered with leading multihull naval architects Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP) – designers of the 33rd America’s Cup winning multihull. Their innovative design formed the large cross-deck into their trademark ‘ailes de mouette’ which not only dispersed the up-draft wave motion, but also housed the large tender.

Michael Leach Design’s relaxed, elegant interior is the epitome of contemporary chic and the yacht’s exceptional volume offers a high degree of luxury without a trace of glitz resulting in a beautiful yet practical family orientated yacht. Accommodation is provided for 12 guests arranged in 5 comfortable en-suite cabins. Watersports facilities on board are more akin to a private waterfront hotel than to a 44m yacht. The starboard lazarette holds the usual superyacht ‘toys’: windsurfers, wakeboards, Seabobs, waterskis etc and the crew tender, and the port hull contains a dive centre with a full range of equipment capable of both Air and NITROX tank fills.

Since her launch Hemisphere has been supported by our refit team at Pendennis Palma and from our base in the Pacific, with yacht support available to her whilst she was cruising Tahiti.
