The second Pendennis-built Hoek Truly Classic 128’ sailing yacht has launched from the specialist facility in Falmouth and entered the shipyard’s adjacent non-tidal wet basin for rig stepping and commissioning prior to sea trials. The classically styled superyacht, christened Halekai, has been in build in Falmouth to the exterior and interior design of world-renowned Hoek Design Naval Architects and with MCM as Owners’ Representative. The fourth hull in the TC128 series, known for their distinctive classic hull shape and above-water styling combined with a modern underwater configuration, brought together the same experienced build team associated with the award-winning 2018 delivery SY Vijonara.
This project will benefit from Hoek Design’s vast experience in building yachts of this size, as well as the Vijonara build team’s collective knowledge and expertise. The yacht is extensively customised but shares the same hull lines, keel and rudder as the first two yachts that were built to this design. Hoek Design is responsible for the interior design with Ken Fulk, New York in charge of the interior décor, inspired by the unique history and culture of Hawaii. Halekai translates to “home on the sea”, a fitting name for this bespoke-built yacht destined to sail around the world with her experienced Owners.
