Superyacht Rigged and Ready to Go
Mariette, built in the USA in 1915, is a stunning Herreshoff designed classic schooner and with a length overall of 42.m will be one of the largest competitors taking part in the Pendennis Cup
Mariette’s pre-summer refit at the Pendennis shipyard began in February and has been completed with the reinstatement of her huge sailing rig, with the mast alone measuring over 36m long. The complete programme of work included an engineering overhaul and a full refit of her generator space, including the replacement of her generators.
Mariette will be making her way to Cowes to sail with other large classics in the Westward Cup. The fleet will then proceed to Falmouth prior to the start of the Pendennis Cup which will run from the 9th-14th August with five days of exhilarating racing off the Cornish coast. With a further 6 confirmed competitors including the super sailing yachts: Adela, Mariquita, Velacarina, Tomahawk, Pinuccia and Zarik. Organsiers anticipate a very busy week with 150-200 owners, crew and guests attending.
The yard is organizing the Cup in conjunction with the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.
