The world’s largest sailing catamaran feels expansive and open as soon as you walk onboard. At 44 metres, the Pendennis yacht has a Michael Leach design with a six-star luxury Polynesian hotel and spa feel.

There’s fishing gear too, and even a custom-made 16-metre express shadow boat, which acts as a guest tender, dive boat and a platform for guests to try offshore sportsfishing.
