The Majestic SY Rebecca Heads For Refit

The iconic German Frers designed 42m (138ft) ketch Rebecca, launched by Pendennis in 1999 has returned to the yard in Falmouth for a winter refit. Even though she has been back to the yard twice since her launch, this time will be the most significant refit since her launch in 1999. After her arrival she had her masts de-stepped in advance of her haul out earlier this month. She will spend the next 8 months inside Pendennis' new 90m (295ft) construction hall where she will be written into the books as the first superyacht to enter the new facility.

Rebecca will be in the yard until April 2014 for her 15 year ABS survey as well as substantial engineering and technical works including an upgrade to the hydraulics, electric, alarms and monitoring systems, the installation of new generators, a full overhaul of her original main engine and the addition of a sewage treatment plant on-board.

Some interior layout modifications will include an expansion to her library to add more books along with a general upgrade and overhaul of her interiors. Her exterior will be substantially improved with the addition of a new teak deck.

The Owner’s representative, Jon Barrett, commented "Great to be back at Pendennis amongst so many familiar faces. 14 Years may have passed since we built Rebecca but the commitment to her by the Pendennis team is being felt by all involved. We are looking forward to a very successful winter refit!"

We look forward to seeing a refreshed Rebecca in April just in time for the Mediterranean summer season.
