Yacht for spies gets makeover
M/Y La Sultana, (65.4m) was built in 1962 and re-launched in July 2015 after a seven-year total reconversion and a metamorphosis requiring more than 1.2 million hours of labor. In 2007, La Sultana Group, attracted by her elegant silhouette, design, strength and exceptional history, acquired the yacht La Sultana, thus renamed, and started a new project: to rebuild her into a ship that embodies the ideal of travel in an exceptional décor.
This ambitious restoration was led by a team of naval construction and navigation professionals under the leadership of the French naval architecture company Orion Naval Engineering and the supervision of the RINA classification office and the flag authorities. La Sultana belongs to the category of modern yachts, thanks to her brand new main engine and the refit of modern navigational equipment. A new diesel Mitsubishi engine was installed to keep the same rotation speed of the shaft line and preserve the original propeller. Cruise speed is 11 knots, with a maximum of about 13 knots.
M/Y Malahne wins “Best Rebuild” at 2016 World Superyacht Awards
Pendennis Shipyard announced that the classic 1937 Camper & Nicholsons M/Y Malahne has been awarded ‘Best Rebuild’ project at the World Superyacht Awards 2016.
The project, which was completed in June 2015 after a 30-month refit program, was overseen by Nicholas Edmiston who saw the yacht’s potential and drove the project forward with an all-British team.
The owner’s brief was to “recreate the vessel as she was in the 1930s, and as if she had always been that way.”
Exterior designers G.L.Watson meticulously outlined the proportions and integrity of the original design while ensuring the vessel was compatible with current Lloyds and MCA requirements.
Oliver Laws Design were recruited to create a stylish and sumptuous Art Deco interior, with exquisite attention to detail in every aspect from hardware to lighting, original furniture and built-in cabinets, even sourcing original Bakelite telephones.
The Pendennis team employed exemplary finishing skills to maintain consistent attention to the yacht’s traditional detailing, supported by modern technology and systems to ensure performance and fuel efficiency. “Malahne is the most extensive superyacht restoration program ever undertaken.” said Mike Carr, managing director of Pendennis.
“We are extremely proud of the result and to be rewarded with a World Superyacht Award is a reflection of the dedication and passion of everyone involved in this project.”
Two new 164-foot yachts from Christensen Shipyards are set to launch at the end of June.
The Vancouver, Wash., yard said the yachts are scheduled to debut in November at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Hull 40, which will be christened Chausseur, is a 50-meter, Maritime and Coastguard Agency-compliant yacht with bleached sycamore interior woodwork with rosewood.
Hull 36, Silver Lining, is a large volume non-MCA yacht with a traditional interior of high-gloss black walnut.
Slightly longer than Chausseur, she features a full-beam sky lounge.
Both launches will take place with the shipyard’s new launching system, which uses self-propelled steerable dollies and large drydock-like stern launch structures, according to the company’s recently launched newsletter.
