S/Y Adix largest yacht to date lifted by Pendennis’ 400 tonne travel hoist
S/Y Adix was recently launched back into the water following a successful seven month refit at Pendennis’ yard in Falmouth. The 370 tonne three masted schooner is the largest yacht to date to be lifted out by the company’s 400 tonne travel hoist. Pendennis’ travel hoist is the largest leisure yacht hoist in the UK.
Originally hauled out in September 2008 following the yachts successful participation in the Pendennis Cup regatta she has undergone an intensive programme of work. Her original work list included a scratch and gloss paint job, the completion of Lloyds and MCA survey work, replacement of scuppers and work on her external deckhouses.
Whilst in the yard the project grew to also include a large amount of engineering work, her generators and main engine have been overhauled, as well as her associated systems. This is S.Y Adix’s third major refit at the yard.
The travel hoist is backed up by a dedicated refit complex - complete with two 75m dry docks, workshops, crew offices and storage - plus over 1,500 sqm of hard standing for external tented refits. The company also has a steady workforce of 300 trades people, project managers and support staff providing in house project control and clarity.
