Restored Classic Yacht MALAHNE to Join Global Charter Fleet
On 14 March the 50m/165ft classic motor yacht MALAHNE was relaunched at Pendennis Shipyard following a rigorous restoration spanning over 30 months. Famously used a minesweeper during World War II, she will soon be available for charter in as-new condition in the Mediterranean.
From service in Dunkirk in 1940 to being used in the production of 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia, MALAHNE boasts an epic history, dating back from her delivery in 1937 by Camper and Nicholsons.
She now has a new lease of life following her restoration, which saw Edmiston Management and G.L. Watson combine their expertise at Pendennis shipyard to fulfil her owner's brief of "making MALAHNE look as if she had been in continuous ownership since she was built.”
Fully classed by Lloyd's Register and MCA compliant, MALAHNE has been restored to the iconic Art Deco style that saw her rise to prominence in the 1930s. Classic yacht expert William Collier of G.L. Watson spearheaded her exterior styling, ensuring her distinct hull shape remained intact. From Oliver Laws, Guy Oliver re-styled her interior with features like antique silver and classic furniture, to channel her original design by Charles E. Nicholson.
Following sea trials in Falmouth, MALAHNE will travel to the Mediterranean for charters in the Mediterranean. For more details about renting M/Y MALAHNE, please contact your preferred charter broker.
