PLEASE NOTE ALL DOLLAR AMOUNTS REPORTED ARE IN AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS This will be the last year I report our annual numbers as I think that the value and the lessons to learn regarding this for prospective buyers, have now been well served. Each year, for the past five years, I have reported the costs involved of owning complex vessel such as Pendana.  These ocean-going vessels are like little micro cities capable of making electricity, storing electricity, compacting garbage, making fresh dri...

Phase three of our remodel is now complete and with that, our time here at Pacific Yacht Management (“PYM”) has now come to an end.  As such, this blog entry will be more a pictorial blog to show how everything came together during our time here in Seattle.  That being said, however, there is one thing that I really need to get off my chest before I begin. The reason this project has run so smoothly can be put down to three things.  Firstly, the people we used were almost as keen to get the jo...

The superyachts Delta Marine make

Time at Delta Marine

Phase two began with our departure from SBMC and arrival at Delta Marine.  With a super moon coinciding with our lift and the notorious Duwamish River capable of delivering 5-6kts of current I was pleased that Delta Marine had scheduled our lift at slack water to ensure a safe exit onto dry land.  I decided to treat Pendana to the professional hands of Mr Graeme Heys from Delta Marine.  Graeme is not only a Superyacht and Large Ships Captain who is more at home with vessels in the 300-700ft pl...

More Seattle Loving

As work continues on Pendana it was time to head up the Duwamish River and its industrialized estuary known as the Duwamish Waterway.  A pretty trip it wasn’t but it was necessary as we were headed to Delta Marine to have Pendana lifted from the water as phase two of our refit continues. We needed to do a few things least of all was to have a few coats of Seahawk Biocop TF (antifoul paint) applied to her hull. In my mind, I have broken this work into three sections.  Part One, demolition of ...

Time For Some Loving

The next few blogs are all going to be about Pendana’s remodel and how things are progressing.  As a teaser, I have put a quick blog together with photos to show that it’s not all G&T’s on the back deck in the boating game. Pendana is pretty much perfect on the mechanical side of things and, as such, we decided some time ago that we would complete a remodel this year and all that entails.  There is little doubt that things on Pendana are going to change and Pendana’s interior will be given som...

Pendana Arrives in Seattle

As the miles under Pendana’s keel increase, we have decided that it is now time to get some preventative maintenance done, a few bits and pieces fixed, as well as – drum roll please - an interior remodel/refresh.  As such, we are headed for the boating mecca of the world, Seattle, Washington. Ok, ok, so that may be a slight exaggeration but it is home to, I am told, the best football team in the world the mighty Seahawks for those who have an interest in such things.  GO SEAHAWKS! Before leavi...
