Yacht refit from Falmouth's Pendennis shipyard shortlisted for international award
A yacht which spent more than a year being refitted at Falmouth's Pendennis shipyard has been shortlisted as a finalist for the World Superyacht Awards.
The Pendennis rebuild A2 (ex. Masquerade of Sole) has been shortlisted in the Superyacht Refit category.
The yacht arrived at Pendennis in the spring of 2011 where she spent 16 months being transformed from her original 1980s design into one to rival any contemporary vessel, both in looks and performance.
As well as overhauling and extending the interior of A2, the team at Pendennis was also briefed to increase both the range and cruising speed of the yacht following her rebuild.

Pendennis also undertook a complete engineering upgrade, replacing all technology, electrical systems, engine room equipment and air conditioning/water systems, leaving the vessel more akin to a newly built superyacht than a 20-year old one.
The yacht's owner, who has not been named, said: "During the project my wife and I were heavily involved in the layout and interior design aspects of A2. Having a small focused owner's team and strong relationship with Pendennis proved to be a very successfully formula."
He added: "From the outset the team at Pendennis were able to apply their substantial knowledge of engineering and electrical systems to plan for a much more efficient and responsive vessel."
Pendennis has one of the world's leading custom superyacht build and refit facilities, with more than 300 highly skilled tradesmen based at their waterfront location in Falmouth.
