The 40m Dubois sloop Tenaz recently left Pendennis following a six month successful refit. The yacht was originally launched by Pendennis back in 1996 and has remained one of the yard’s best loved projects. Following an extensive world cruise with her new owner and his family, it was decided to bring the yacht back to Pendennis so that they could make her better than new. Taking advantage of the yards history with this yacht, the original new build project manager was assigned the task of, in the words of the owner, ‘putting the yacht back to how she was when launched’. This involved a top to bottom, interior and exterior repaint, refurbishment of the teak decks, general interior re-touching, main engine exhaust rebuild, maintenance and updating of rigging and systems and general electrical and mechanical refurbishment.
