The 42-metre classic steel-hulled superyacht Fair Lady, designed by Charles Nicholson and built in 1928 by Camper & Nicholson, has left the Pendennis Palma yard after a six-month winter refit. The team from Pendennis overhauled the main engine and generators, as well as carrying out a full repaint, which required all topside joinery to be removed, refreshed and reinstalled. Pendennis contracted several experts from its UK yard to work alongside local sub-contractors to complete the work.

Fair Lady has been a regular visitor to Pendennis over the past 20 years, with her initial visit in 1996 involving a complete renovation to restore her to her former glory. Based in the STP facility in Palma de Mallorca, Pendennis Palma’s recent refit projects include the 1992 Va Bene, the 26-metre ketch Velacarina, with new arrivals Mavana and Lionheart.

The yacht, which came fifth in SuperYacht World’s poll of the Top 40 Classic Superyachts in 2011 (Issue 20), is available for charter through Burgess from €56,000pw.
