Pendennis and Burgess have announced that the 35m expedition style yacht Project Fox is for sale, with Ian Sherwood from Burgess acting as the central broker. "Burgess has always enjoyed a positive relationship with Pendennis and we are delighted to be, once again, collaborating on this exciting new build. Combining the best of British talents, this yacht will be a great example of British craftsmanship and a wonderful show piece to the rest of the world," says Ian Sherwood.


Project Fox exterior 

The yacht is currently in build at Pendennis’ Falmouth facility. She features interior and exterior styling from Q London. Her steel hull and aluminium superstructure are constructed to RINA commercial classification and she is scheduled for delivery in spring 2023. Project Fox is aptly named after one of Falmouth's most famous sons: Robert Were Fox the Younger. He was a 19th-century scientist who enabled exploration by inventing a compass that measured magnetic dip at sea in high latitudes, a compass that ultimately guided the expedition that discovered the South Pole. The associations between Fox, Falmouth and exploration are ones that resonate strongly in one of the very few genuine explorer yachts of this size.

“The sale of one of our yachts part-way through its build process is a first for Pendennis, but we think this is an exciting opportunity for a new owner to make this stunning yacht their own. As well as taking delivery of a brand new yacht with a shortened lead time, the new Owner would also be joining an exceptionally strong build team here at Pendennis with the project engineering and scheduled works in full swing,” says Stephen Hills, Pendennis’ Commercial Director.

58m PHI Departure from Royal Huisman Facilities in Vollenhove
The 58m superyacht Phi was caught during her departure from the Royal Huisman new build facility in Vollenhove. The shipyard has shared the latest picture. The yacht was launched in July. Her naval architecture is by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Their specially developed Fast Displacement XL hull form allows this yacht to be long and sleek, yet still remain under the 500 GT mark. Developed and constructed below 500GT, Phi is by far the longest motoryacht in this category, based on current Classification rules. Her general concept, exterior design and interior layout were made by Cor D. Rover, although the interior was made by studio Lawson Robb.“Just take a look at our two current motoryacht projects: project 403, Phi, and project 406, a unique 52m sportfish yacht that will become the largest of its kind in the world. The individual aspirations and challenges of each of these projects were seen to be well outside the comfort zone by some yards. With the benefit of expert advice, each of these owners brought their highly distinctive individual projects to Royal Huisman, where fresh opportunities for creative problem-solving and innovation were enthusiastically welcomed. So what gives us so much confidence in Royal Huisman’s capability to build exceptional motoryachts? Here are two good examples of the ‘edge’ Royal Huisman has to offer. First, the expertise we have acquired from our unrivalled 55 years’ experience in aluminium construction. This enables us to maximise performance and efficiency through compact, lightweight and high strength engineering. Second, our ability to design and install complex operational systems in restricted volume hull areas provides the owner with more net space for amenities and further increases efficiency. Add to that a can-do mentality, seeking to optimize and enhance the ideas of the owner, their architects and designers, rather than trying to persuade them to scale back their ambitions to what the shipyard is accustomed to delivering. We think that’s a pretty good combination!”, says Jan Timmerman, Royal Huisman CEO. Owner’s Representative Guy Booth commented: “All of us involved in the creation of Phi feel a sense of privilege to have had the opportunity to contribute to this innovative project. The co-operation between the owner’s team, the architects, the designers and everyone at Royal Huisman has been exceptional. We can be justifiably proud of what we have achieved.”Phi is scheduled for delivery later this year. Royal Huisman is a Dutch shipyard established in 1884 in Ronduite, building and refitting custom luxury sailing and motor yachts at its shipyard in Vollenhove, the Netherlands.Credits: Tom van Oossanen/Royal Huisman
