Description

At the end of 2008 Pendennis announced the partnership with Ron Holland Design and Palm Beach Yachts International to build a new 46m performance cruising ketch. Three staterooms and a study provide the Owners and their guests with accommodation for up to 12, with a further four cabins forward sleeping eight crew. Christopher is the largest ketch built by Pendennis to date, and was delivered Spring 2011 in time to compete in the St Barth’s Bucket Regatta. The vessel celebrates classic traditions yet embraces new sailing technologies performing equally well as a beautiful family ‘home from home’ and a performance sailing cruiser. Despite a challenging 22 month build timeline, the strong partnership between the clients, designers and Pendennis’ project team enabled successful delivery to Pendennis’ usual uncompromising high standards, resulting in an impressive example of the very best in superyacht design and construction. Innovative technology included twin rudders, a pivoting keel and powerful rig and carbon rigging that provided performance as well as a shallow draft, and infra-red shielding in all windows reducing heat transfer into the accommodation thereby minimizing air con requirements. Her twin balanced rudders are an obvious departure for a large cruising yacht and have been incorporated to maximise sailing performance in strong wind conditions and to allow space for a large Williams Turbojet 505D tender in the lazarette.
