BRITISH COMPANY PENDENNIS SHIPYARD completed an extensive 18-month refit of the 46.33m motoryacht Constance in July 2016. The yacht was originally built by Feadship as Paminusch in 1986, and arrived initially in Falmouth, the UK as Jana, delivered by cargo ship in Dec 2014. She entered into the 90m Hall 1 at Pendennis in March 2015 following refit preparation works.
The remit for the refit was to ensure the structural integrity of the yacht complies to offshore cruising requirements, to modernise systems and equipment not only to improve efficiency, but also to comply to emission regulations, and to refresh the interiors to the style of the new Owners.
During her time at Pendennis, all bridge and engine room equipment and systems were replaced, while insulation was improved throughout and tanking systems refabricated as necessary. Refurbishment of the Owner and guest areas was carried out by Pendennis’ interior design team, with existing woodwork removed, restored and meticulously reinstated by Pendennis’ Joinery team. Special attention was paid to damage stability; this required the addition of further watertight compartment subdivisions to meet the most up-to-date regulations.
Externally two new deck cranes were installed and new teak decking laid across all areas. A full topsides, bulwarks and superstructure repaint by the specialist paint team completed the refresh of the boat. www.pendennis.com
