Newly extended 74.5-metre luxury yacht Lady E leaves Pendennis refit facilities

British shipyard Pendennis has released details on the recent refit and extension of the now 74.5m/244ft luxury yacht LADY E, which was re-launched from Falmouth mid-September.

Built in 2006, luxury yacht LADY E has received an exhaustive update to bring her into line with her Owner’s vision.

The exterior appearance looks like new following a topcoat to the bulwarks and UV-sensitive areas. New teak decking covers the main deck, stern, pool deck and sundeck, and a new re-paint was given to the pool.

The stern extension has added 6m/20ft and this elongation has also created a more contemporary appearance. As a result there is even more room for amenities, and the new areas are:

  • A 66m2/710ft2 beach club
  • A 55m2/592ft2 social area on the main deck aft
  • A hammam, and
  • A spa and massage area

The beach club comes with a 77” plasma TV and a well-stocked bar, plus plenty of wall storage for water toys that include surfboards and e-foil boards. The transom door is now three times larger and opens to a full-beam swim platform and actuated stairs for easy access in and out of the water. A main deck skylight, two entrances and six windows on both the port and starboard sides.

Above, the new extended main deck aft provides a spacious social and sunbathing area with sunpads covered by a sunshade, seating and sun umbrellas, and has a glass panel along the stern that overlooks the new water sports platform unique to M/Y LADY E. The alfresco entertainment system is finished to the highest standards to match nightclub quality.

Within, the upper deck has been transformed, and where the galley and pantry once were there is now a new spa massage centre designed by Exclusive Living, with Hammam and facilities for manicures and pedicures, hair and make-up.

Hidden within the walls are five kilometres of modern data cabling to complement the AV upgrades throughout. The bridge deck systems have received a significant upgrade to the power management and alarm management systems, radar and mapping.

The engineering and generators have been extensively overhauled with new systems and upgrades: New Scania DI13 generators with SCR systems meet the latest IMO Tier 3 standards for cleaner emissions, and to reduce particulate emissions and comply with NOx and SOx MARPOL regulations, HUG DPF systems have also been added.

Now that M/Y LADY E is back on the water, she will be available for charter and will begin a world tour from the start of 2021, commencing in Australia followed by New Zealand and the South Pacific before heading to the Caribbean & Bahamas for autumn 2021.

BELOW DECK SERIES: Yacht Sirocco from Seasons 2 & 4

The second season of Below Deck Mediterranean showcased the sophisticated 47m/154.2ft superyacht SIROCCO, appearing under her own name as she cruised the beautiful and highly popular Croatian charter grounds.

Beautiful superyacht Sirocco from the Below Deck series

She was built by internationally renowned Dutch shipyard Heesen in 2006 and, as with all the other luxury yachts on Below Deck, was refitted before filming in 2017. Her excellent pedigree, stylish interiors and range of amenities has made her attractive for New Year celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate event charters as she cruises through the Eastern and Western Mediterranean.

The Interiors

The natural tones and materials found in Indonesian design had a significant part to play in the interiors for luxury yacht SIROCCO from Omega Architects. Geometric shapes with gentle curves and large proportions form an elegant contemporary look that is desirable both for special occasions as well as family gatherings and getaways among friends.

Dining

Celebrations large and small will begin in the main salon that joins with the formal dining area, creating a massive environment that works well for large dockside gatherings as well as intimate family meals. The bar aft has a wide selection for light afternoon refreshments all the way to strong spirits for guests who like to party hard into the early hours.

Since the Master suite is on the upper deck where the sky lounge is typically placed, this second salon – which doubles as a cinema – is instead a media room forward on the main deck. This puts all the indoor entertainment areas on the same level to convenience both guests and crew.

Lounge

Engineering is always a priority with Heesen, and luxury yacht SIROCCO has an excellent top speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots using her MTU 3,700 HP engines.

The Exteriors

Heesen and Omega Architects worked together to style the exterior, opting for classic curves and a strong muscular appearance in black and white.

The main deck aft is an easily accessed social hub off the main salon where the sofas, armchairs and coffee tables are arranged to create a cosy and casual ambiance for morning coffee right through to nightcaps at twilight. It’s also the best place to be when guests want access to the water and the toys, and sunbathing on the swim platform below.

Exterior profile

The upper deck aft can be a private outdoor terrace for the occupants of the Master suite, or accessed by all for memorable outdoor meals at the large alfresco dining setting. Whether dining or not, the sofa seating curving along the edge welcomes guests to take the weight off their feet and enjoy the moment in the warm Mediterranean breeze. The foredeck meanwhile has a row of sunpads to soak up the sunshine and the views, and seating behind makes a great alternative to formal lunches and refreshments without ever needing to leave the area.

The sundeck is a superb retreat to watch the vibrant Dalmatian Coast sunsets: Guests can relax and chat over cocktails on the sundeck forward, or head aft to soak in the eight-person Jacuzzi before drying off on the sunpads on a clear starry night.

The Accommodation

There are 6 wonderfully large en-suite cabins on board to sleep up to 12 guests: 1 Master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins.

The upper deck Master suite enjoys 180° views and a shaded aft terrace for quiet evenings under starry night skies or morning coffee in the shade while marvelling at the white cliffs along the Istrian peninsula. The air-conditioned bedroom has TV entertainment for those mornings when guests can’t sleep but also don’t want to get out of their king-sized bed, and the cavernous en-suite bathroom comes with a marble bathtub for the occupants to soak away their cares.

Accommodation

The VIP stateroom on the main deck is well-proportioned to offer a queen-sized bed and loveseat in addition to TV entertainment and another large en-suite bathroom.

The rest of the guest accommodation on the lower deck is each unique, while ensuring that guest comfort and room entertainment is not neglected.

The Water Toys

M/Y SIROCCO has a great collection of water toys to keep guests active and entertained from one side of the Mediterranean to the other. Among the collection is:

  • 2 x jet skis
  • water skis
  • a wakeboard
  • snorkelling equipment

Guests who want to keep moving in the evenings or while cruising have a well-equipped gym on the sundeck that can be opened up to the fresh sea air.

Health companies have paired with airlines to ensure that travellers can take an FDA-approved test at home (mail-in kits) or in-person (rapid testing at approved airports) and receive the result before making the flight, clearing fellow passengers as well.

A luxury yacht charter provides a way to visit incredible remote beaches, snorkel and dive sites, and just enjoy life in the sunshine without ever having to set foot in the cities or mingle with other holidaymakers: Supplies can be delivered to the docks so that crew can maintain the yacht’s social distancing bubble, keeping vulnerable guests safe throughout the trip.
