Pendennis has confirmed that the 47m motor yacht A2 (previously known as Masquerade of Sole) was named winner of the ‘Rebuilt Motor Yacht’ category at the annual World Superyacht Awards held in the Çırağan Palace Kempinski, Istanbul.
The refit objective was to completely transform the 1983-built yacht into one reflective of modern design and technology, both externally and internally. The results are impressive as the yacht is now completely unrecognisable from her former self.
The initial phase of the project was to strip the vessel down to her bare steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Following this, structural engineers at BMT Nigel Gee worked alongside the technical team at Pendennis to design a five metre extension across three levels, increasing A2 from 42.5m to 47m LOA.
The rebuild also required an interior design by Peter Marino Architects and re-engineering of all systems, including installation of new deck equipment, a complete rebuild of the engine room, installation of modern bridge technology and new state-of-the-art AV equipment.
Pendennis completely redesigned and rewired the vessel’s electrical system, creating a highly efficient and effective power management system.
