3D scanning technology has been used by Pendennis Shipyard to ensure millimetre precision in an Andre Hoek-designed 39m long sloop.

Vijonara is the second hull in Hoek Design's Truly Classic 128 series and is the result of an 18-month build programme at Pendennis’ site in Falmouth.

"Based on a proven hull specification, the owners had a distinct vision for her customisation to suit their lifestyle and she has been optimised extensively for performance," explained Andre Hoek. "A new addition to the 128ft design is a bow sprit that houses the downwind sails such as A-symmetric spinnaker or a Code sail, as well as paying homage to true vintage sailing yachts.”

Strategic positioning

The helm station is positioned in front of the aft deckhouse. The central steering wheel with two adjacent side consoles are flanked by winches and hydraulics for performance sailing by a small crew.

The yacht features an open-plan owner’s suite with two bathrooms, a private seating area, study and an oculus with its own underwater lighting.

Forward of the owner’s cabin on portside is a large salon with a TV and library, whilst a gym is positioned on the starboard side.

Luxurious styling includes Sapele mahogany flat panelling and traditional detailing, plus Italian walnut-laid floors with a 6mm maple margin seam alongside Hermès-created interior fittings. The interior and exterior joinery was installed by Ruiter Quality Interiors and Pendennis.
