On a beautiful summer evening S.Y Nostromo - the latest Dubois/ Pendennis collaboration - emerged from the construction hall at the Falmouth Superyacht yard. Built in an impressive 18 months, the 30m aluminum sloop is a true benchmark for British marine engineering design excellence.
Her deck layout, superstructure and hull lines follow the best Dubois concepts to combine fantastic sailing performance with practical, all-weather comfort and usability. Externally, a spacious aft deck offers magnificent opportunities for sunbathing, while the large and comfortable bimini-sheltered cockpit is designed for “al fresco” dining for up to 12 guests.
Below decks, the living space is spilt over two levels, taking full advantage of light through the 180 degree panoramic windows and providing the owner with an elegant saloon for dining and general relaxation, together with a spacious and practical pilothouse and deck-level lounge. Sleeping accommodation for up to nine guests is located aft and is spread out over four beautifully appointed en suite cabins complete with the latest audio visual equipment.
Following her launch, the yacht’s carbon fibre rig by Hall Spars and Future Fibres, with sails by North and winches by Harken, was quickly set up before sea trials commenced. Nostromo is due to leave Falmouth for the Mediterranean at the end of July.
At her launch the Owner commented “I am pleased that all the effort put into the detailed design of Nostromo has borne fruit. I have an elegant and spacious all-weather performance yacht, which I am sure will give all who sail in her great pleasure and satisfaction. I am glad to have placed my faith in the UK’s only custom superyacht builder, and congratulate Pendennis on fully justifying this. Throughout the project, the Pendennis team have been totally dedicated and professional. They have not let me down. I thank them, and wish them well.”
Nostromo can be chartered through Edmiston.
