M/Y Fair Lady undergoes complete refit
Published: Monday, 17 June 2013
The 42-metre Fair Lady is a classic steel-hulled and teak-decked motor yacht, built in 1928 by Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard, UK. This beautiful yacht has been a regular visitor to Pendennis over the past 20 years, including her complete restoration to her former glory in 1996. Pendennis is renowned for their restoration expertise, having worked on other classic yachts such as Adela, Shamrock V and Mariette, rejuvenating them while respecting their original heritage.
Fair Lady’s six-month refit at Pendennis’ Palma facility has just been completed, including a five-year MCA LY1 survey, which required substantial engineering work. They carried out an overhaul of the main engine and generators, as well as a maintenance schedule for all engine room equipment. Pendennis contracted several experts from its UK yard to work alongside local sub-contractors for this work. The refit was complemented by a full re-paint, for which all topside joinery was removed, refreshed and reinstalled, and an overhaul of the standing rigging was also carried out.
Fair Lady has a 6.4-metre beam and a draft of 2.75 metres. She also sports eight cabins for the owner and guests and seven crew cabins. She is powered by two 275 horsepower Deutz RAM6 428 diesel engines.
Based in the STP facility in Palma de Mallorca, Pendennis Palma offers a complete superyacht service package, whether it be a fully-project managed refit or utiilising Pendennis’ skills and experience for specific works. Recent refit projects have included the 1992 M/Y Va Bene, the 26-metre ketch Velacarina, with new arrivals being the small classic motor yachts Mavana and Lionheart.
