Pendennis - MY Lady E Relaunched
Newly extended 74.5m Lady E launches at Pendennis following major refit project
UK Superyacht specialists Pendennis, have launched the newly extended 74.5m MY Lady E following an extensive refit programme at their Falmouth facility. Fresh from Pendennis’ dry dock, MY Lady E was promptly moved to the yards 7,564sqm wet basin for final commissioning work ahead of a series of sea trials over the coming weeks.
A major component of the yachts refit has been the addition of a 6m stern extension. The result of which has been an extra 120sqm of guest space across her lower and main decks. Future guests on board will now be able to enjoy a brand new 60sqm beach club on the lower deck and additional guest seating and sunbathing area’s on the main deck aft. On the bridge deck the decision was taken to further improve the yachts guest facilities with the installation of a fully equipped health and wellbeing suite. Finally, the yacht has benefited from the application of top coat on her exterior bulwarks and high UV areas.
As well as the visible external and internal improvements, a comprehensive programme of engineering and AVIT works was completed by the technical experts at Pendennis alongside a team of leading industry contractors. Key elements included the installation of three new generators, the overhaul of the main engines and service work carried out on all major systems.
We wish Lady E safe passage once her refit & sea trails are complete, and she heads into her upcoming charter season.
