Pendennis Vilanova enters final phase of development and will be completed this year

Pendennis has announced that it has now entered the third and final phase of development at its Vilanova site in Barcelona. The task now at hand for the shipyard is converting the existing unused buildings into a paint facility, which includes a state-of-the-art spray booth, offices and training spaces.Pendennis VilanovaThe UK-based shipbuilder invested in Vilanova Grand Marina back in 2018 and has already constructed a Technical Service Centre brimming with amenities. Since this initial investment, the site has grown to 30,000 square-kilometres and boasts a new hardstanding area, a 620-tonne travel hoist, which was transferred from Pendennis’ Falmouth facility, and a dedicated team of 25 tradespeople.

The newly installed 14 by 7 metre spray booth will enhance the site's existing paint capabilities, and be accompanied by a 230 square-metre space dedicated to preparation and painting work. Pendennis will use the facilities to work on small yacht sections, components and tenders.
