'The Pendennis Way'
21 October 2014
In Falmouth, at Pendennis Worldclass Superyachts – big name-claim but for once a company’s proud boast is 100% accurate. Just look at the picture to get an idea of the boats they build and service and rebuild. That is Adix, a spectacular 65 metre three-masted schooner, now undergoing a comprehensive refit. We’re interviewing Stephen Hills, Project Director for the company – which means he oversees all the work going on at Falmouth, for some of the most high-value clients you might ever chance to encounter. So, no pressure then! Stephen tells us that Pendennis reckon their USP’s are that they can do all their work down to the last rivet in house, so keeping up their quality standards – and also because they take on a lot of apprentices and train them in the Pendennis way. Looks like it works.
