Client News

SSI congratulates its client, Pendennis Shipyard, whose refit of the 47m motor yacht, “A2” saw her win the “Rebuilt Motor Yacht” category at the recent World Super Yacht Awards.

The vessel was stripped down to her bare steel hull and aluminum superstructure before structural engineers at BMT Nigel Gee, working alongside the technical team at Pendennis, (both using ShipConstructor software), designed a five metre extension across three levels, increasing the yacht’s overall length from 42.5m to 47m.

The refit objective on A2 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 unrecognizable from her former self—a truly remarkable transformation, fully deserving of global recognition.

Michael Viala, Sales and Marketing Manager for SSI notes that, “Once again, whether it is rebuilds or new construction, SSI and its flagship software, ShipConstructor, continue to be associated with the world’s finest yachts. It’s great to see one of our clients win such a prestigious award.”
