Story

The design challenge presented by Adela was to incorporate every conceivable modern yacht system and convenience into the original interior without losing the charm and elegance of the original W.C. Storey design.

Today, Adela cuts a classic profile blending traditional fittings with modern technology within her sumptuous interior as well as on deck. Custom made blocks and winch, concealed state of the art communications and a modern climate control system all provide the comfort and convenience one would expect on a modern superyacht.

Since her initial restoration Adela has returned to the yard for remodelling work in 2000, during which she had a 5m mid-ships hull extension, and for routine maintenance refits at Pendennis facilities in Falmouth, Palma and Barcelona. Her 2012 recent refit included a full engineering overhaul, new generators, new paint, and minor interior and electrical work. It was also the first time that her mainsail has been replaced since her initial remodel at Pendennis. Adela was welcomed to Pendennis once more in August 2015 as she returned for a fourth refit in Falmouth, 20 years after she was rebuilt at the yard. In addition to her refits in Falmouth, Adela has enjoyed several technical pit stops at Pendennis’ Technical Service Centre in Vilanova Barcelona since it’s opening in 2019.

A highly competitive racing yacht, Adela has twice graced the Pendennis Cup fleet, winning the event overall in 2010. Since then she has become a contender for the major superyacht racing titles with victories in the St Barths Bucket, RORC Caribbean 600, Antigua Superyacht Challenge and the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta over the past five years.
