Summer 2009 witnessed the launch of another Dubois sailing yacht, Nostromo. The yacht was the eighth to be built by Pendennis from the Dubois drawing boards in a relationship that has stretched over 25 years.

Four cabins accommodate up to eight guests, alongside an elegant saloon, large cockpit and huge deck space, making Nostromo a family-friendly superyacht. Nostromo’s hull and rig are designed expressly for high performance under sail. Nostromo is equally at home under sail or power. With her immense range, she is capable of crossing the Atlantic without refuelling at a full under-power cruising speed of 9 knots. Nostromo is not only beautiful, fast and commodious; she is also strong, sound and has extraordinary power and endurance.

Nostromo was one of the first yachts to take advantage of our refit base in Mallorca, stopping at Pendennis Palma for a short refit in 2011 shortly after the new refit facility was launched.

Nostromo returned to Falmouth for a winter refit in 2013/14 which included her 5 year Lloyds and MCA surveys, a full vessel exterior re-paint, new electronics and entertainment system package, Owner cabin modifications and works on the yacht’s lighting system. She is a regular visitor to both the Pendennis Palma and Falmouth facilities for on-going servicing work.
