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, 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.
Interior styling for SY Halekai has been curated by Ken Fulk Inc. of New York, 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.
Pendennis is one of the world's leading custom superyacht build and refit shipyards - becoming one of Cornwall's most important employers with over 430 highly skilled tradespeople based at the 14-acre prime waterfront location in Falmouth, UK.
The yard's modern facilities include three bespoke-built construction halls (2x90m and 1x45m) alongside a 150m dry-dock, with the capacity for both new build and refit contracts for 30-100m superyachts.
The 800 tonne travel hoist enables efficient launching into the 7,564m² non-tidal wet basin which is purpose-built to accommodate superyachts of up to 100m LOA.
