According to Pendennis, the project will include “exterior styling modifications, extensive engineering and electrical work and a full repaint of the hull and superstructure.” The yacht will also be outfitted with “new, luxury guest and crew interiors.”
First delivered by Dutch yard J&K Smit in 1957, the classic superyacht began its life as an oceangoing tug before being converted into a superyacht between 1998 and 2004. Her last refit was in 2016.
Seawolf’s current layout includes accommodations for up to 12 guests in five cabins, including a full-beam master suite located on the private owner's deck, complete with an office and pantry. Her deck spaces also boast an al fresco cocktail bar, a swimming pool and plenty of sunbathing and lounging areas.
An ice-strengthened hull allows for remote cruising and her extensive travels have so far taken her to a number of exotic destinations including Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji and the Dominican Republic. A popular charter yacht, Seawolf boasts a range of toys including Jet Skis and windsurfers, plus the crew includes a certified dive instructor.
In recent years, however, Seawolf has spent time cruising cooler waters in the UK. “We enjoyed cruising the Cornish coastline and visiting Pendennis in 2020 and are pleased to be returning to such a beautiful location and professional shipyard,” commented Seawolf’s owners. “We are looking forward to the project and working with the team from Pendennis”.
Pendennis managing director Toby Allies said: “The whole team at Pendennis is really pleased to welcome Seawolf and her crew to Falmouth this week. The scope and scale of the project is really exciting for us and will utilise many of our in-house trade specialists. We’re looking forward to working on Seawolf and delivering her back to [her owners] for her next adventure.”
The expected completion date for Seawolf's refit is summer 2023.
