The 30-year-old superyacht has been transformed by the British yard after an 18-month refit.

The 46.3-metre Constance was launched by Feadship as Paminusch in 1986. She was renamed Jana many years later, and fell into disrepair. After being bought by her current owners, she was deemed uninsurable and was delivered to the Pendennis yard by barge, arriving in Falmouth in December 2014.

Following an extensive 18 months of refit and repair, Constance has been relaunched and looks as good as new.


The refit included the replacing of all the bridge and engine rooms systems, to bring her up to modern cruising standards. Structurally she was also updated, making her MCA compliant for “unrestricted service”, allowing her to travel distances previously impossible.

The guest and crew areas were also extensively modified, with the crew quarters and galley being completely ripped out and rebuilt. The guest areas were modernised to her new owners’ tastes, and the original woodwork removed and meticulously restored by Pendennis’s in-house joinery team.

Externally, Constance benefited from brand-new teak decking across all areas and a full paint job of topsides, bulwarks and superstructure. Two cranes were installed on the aft bridge deck to accommodate the use of modern tenders.


Constance hit the water again in June for her sea trials before being handed over to her proud owners in July. Hosting a party at the yard, the owners said: “As our first motor yacht, when we took over the boat and understood the implications of the survey results, the refit initially seemed a very daunting project to undertake. However, the team at Pendennis has worked incredibly hard to restore Constance, and they have been supportive and professional throughout. We are delighted with the result and now we are very much looking forward to enjoying time on board.”
