adix london yacht

Built by Astilleros de Mallorca in 1984 to an Arthur Holgate design, with a length of almost 65m, Adix remains one of the largest sailing yachts built since the 1930s. The yacht was originally brought to the yard in 1991 to undergo a complete programme of refit and repair, including a transom modification, 6m extension and full interior strip out. She has since paid subsequent visits to our yard in 2001, 2008, 2014, and 2022. During her 2009 visit Adix underwent scratch and gloss paint work, Lloyd’s and MCA surveys with a major engineering overhaul on her generators and main engines and cosmetic work on her external deckhouses. At the time the 370 tonne three masted schooner was the largest yacht to be lifted out by Pendennis’ 400 tonne travel hoist. Adix returned to Falmouth in April 2014 to compete in the fourth edition of the Pendennis Cup following which she was hauled out to begin a comprehensive 8-month refit programme. The Schooner underwent engineering works which included the installation of new generators and main engine, the yacht’s weight was assessed and the ballast was reconfigured to improve her weight by over 18 tonnes. Paintworks were completed in situ whilst she was based in one of our 90m construction halls. The Pendennis team redesigned the yacht’s deck house, which was moved further forward and combined with a seating area to provide better interaction with the Owner’s accommodation. After enjoying the summer cruising period Adix returned for final topside works including new lighter carbon and titanium rigging to complete her refit. After departing Falmouth, Adix continued to receive remote assistance from our Yacht Support team in locations around the globe, before returning for a short visit to the yard in 2022. She has recently departed to continue her adventures.

Adix launches after an eight-month refit at Pendennis

After completing an eight-month refit, luxury sailing superyacht Adix has been launched. The extensive refit programme at Pendennis included a redesign of her deck house, the addition of new portholes on each side and an overhaul of her engineering.

The revamp of her deck house moved it further forward, and added a seating area to allow better interaction with the owner’s accommodation. As part of the refit, Adix was given new generators and had a main engine, bow thruster and rudder installed.

This was the fourth refit of Adix at Pendennis, based in Falmouth in England. Built in Spain in 1984 to an Arthur Holgate design, Adix had her first transformation back in 1991 when she underwent underwent a transom modification and full interior strip out, with design by Dykstra Naval Architects . This remodelling programme saw her named as ‘Best Refit’ in the ShowBoats Awards that year.

The three-masted, 370 tonne schooner, originally called Jessica and for a time renamed as XXXX by then-owner Alan Bond, who recently passed away , to promote his beer brand, is still one of the largest sailing yachts built since the 1930s. Adix has competed twice in the Pendennis Cup, a regatta for classic and modern yachts 30m+ organised by the yard off Falmouth.

In March, Malahne was launched after a painstaking 30-month restoration , hailed as one of the most ambitious of all time. The yacht is the cover star of the August issue (out now), which includes exclusive photos of her new interior and the story behind her restoration. She's widely regarded as one of the best British superyachts of all time since her restoration.

#25 Adix…

Whilst back in the UK, a good friend tipped me off about a job going for a bosun on the three-masted Schooner “Adix”. I drove down to Falmouth to meet the Captain, and used the time to catch up with some of the lovely Cornish folks down there. After some discussion, it was decided that I would fly out and meet the boat in Antigua after their Atlantic crossing.

adix london yacht

First of all, I flew back to Italy to pick up the rest of my stuff from Sincerity. I loaded a ton of tools into a big black holdall with some sturdy looking wheels, which all fell off after about a hundred yards. After a lot of cursing and dragging and kicking, I managed to manhandle my bags into a hostel in Florence. I wandered around that beautiful city, equally stunned by the sheer number of young female art students as I was by the amazing architecture and culture. I took a bus south into the country and met an unknown and distant cousin who turned out to live in a wonderful old monastery were she carved beautiful things out of stone. Just a day in that rejuvenating place seemed to recharge my batteries, and I returned to Florence and then London with a spring in my step. Over that week I managed to miss four pre-booked coaches and very nearly missed two flights, which led me to the conclusion that I have lost the ability to land-travel, and must make an effort to avoid doing it if possible.

adix london yacht

Christmas and New Years Eve passed merrily with family and friends, and I shortly found myself on yet another plane, bound for Antigua once again. It’s ironic that I started sailing in order to avoid this kind of travel.

Adix is a behemoth of a classic sailing Yacht. She is a three-masted gaff schooner – 65 metres long, weighing 270 tonnes, built in steel with a brand new carbon fibre rig. The pictures say it all really.

adix london yacht

I arrived in English Harbour and spotted her enormous and distinctive masts immediately. The crew welcomed me on board, I unpacked my bags, and I nervously started my new life on board.

adix london yacht

The size and scale of everything shocked me at first. The amount and the complexity of the systems on board were like nothing I had ever seen before. Confusing mazes of hydraulic lines and valves, dozens of different compressors, a huge watermaker, fridges, freezers, washing and drying machines, air conditioning, generators, communication systems, radar, GPS, AIS, VHF, UHF, SSB, navtex, in-house telephones, TV and internet, enough plumbing and wiring to look after a medium-sized English village, and all of it carefully hidden behind the beautiful teak paneling that lines the interior of the boat.

The rig and the deck also blew me away. To walk from one end of the boat to the other seems to take forever. The bowsprit is almost longer than my whole boat. The steel whisker-stays look like they were constructed for a suspension bridge rather than a yacht, and the carbon-fibre standing rigging hums with the vibration of wind and tension. Each mast towers aloft, and each enormous spar looks like it was felled in the amazon, judging by the size. In fact, though, these seemingly wooden spars have a carbon-fibre inner core, too, which gives much needed strength to the ridiculously powerful rig.

adix london yacht

As you climb the ratlines (steps between the shrouds that lead up to the spreaders), you ascend amongst a plethora of lines and halyards, braided and three-strand, Spectra and Dacron. They are all the same shade of beige, so that it’s near impossible to work out or remember what line does what, until you have studied the rig properly and sailed the boat a few times. When you get to the spreaders and stand on them (no harness, mind, but this is the first initiation for new crew), you can look down on the deck and see various specks moving around, and you realise that those are people down there. You can see the elegant shape of Adix’s hull, and have a bird’s eye view of every boat for miles around. And when you look up, there is still more mast and more rigging stretching above.

adix london yacht

As I settled into the routine of work, watches, meals and duties on board, I also got to know each individual character in the crew. As with many boats, there is an eclectic and dynamic mix of personalities, which makes being on board as interesting socially as it is professionally – but of course, in this sort of job, your social life is part of your professional life, and to succeed you must be capable of managing and balancing all different aspects of it. Generally, this means going to the pub more often than is healthy.

We were preparing Adix for the RORC Caribbean 600, a six-hundred mile race around the North-Eastern islands of the Caribbean, starting and ending in Antigua. As Bosun I was supposed to be responsible for the rig and the deck, as well as a navigational watch whilst sailing, but for the first few weeks I was simply getting to know the boat and helping out where needed.

In the meantime, I was enjoying being back in Antigua. I caught up with old friends from last year, visited my old workshop, and of course went to see my boat “Lorema”, which had been berthed inside a shed on the North side of Antigua for nearly a year. She was fine, but had suffered a little from the heat, and so I decided to strip her back to bare wood below the waterline, and reapply primer and antifoul properly. This was a good idea, but was bloody horrible work, and involved getting covered in poisonous blue dust and boiling hot flakes of paint (I was using a heatgun and a scraper) for hours and days on end. Every weekend evening I would come back to Adix looking like a Smurf, and spend hours in the shower scrubbing it all off before going to bed – or out to the pub.

adix london yacht

Finally she was sanded back, and having done a few bits of necessary filling, the painting started. This went well, and I even convinced some of the Adix crew to come and get involved, although they had to be heavily bribed with cold beer and promises of sailing on my boat, of course.

adix london yacht

Other Antigua distractions included the annual ‘Wobbly boat race’ – where boat crews have a few hours to build a boat out of a couple of bits of plywood and whatever materials they can find lying around, and then of course have to race them around a course. Cheating and dressing-up is encouraged, and we managed to do a bit of both. However, our hastily constructed catamaran didn’t actually make it very far around the course, as it shipped a couple of waves (of suspicious origin), and one of the hulls cracked as we flipped it over to empty it. However, we took part of our boat (with our race number on it), and swum it around the course to finish in some position that wasn’t quite last, at least. Needless to say, quite a lot of beer was consumed and everybody got very wet. At least plenty of money was raised for ABSAR, the local emergency response charity, which was the point of the whole thing.

adix london yacht

In the meantime, the slightly more serious RORC 600 was approaching fast, and we had to get Adix ready to race. Sails were prepped, rigs checked, race crew flown in, rules perused, and finally we lined up on the starting line on a beautiful sunny morning with a light but steady trade-wind blowing. We hoisted nine or so sails, and crossed the line with the boom of the starting cannon.

adix london yacht

We pushed the boat as hard as we could for three days and three nights. We had two watches of eight people, taking four hours rest each, but every time we had to do a major sail change we needed to get the whole crew on deck. We did 57 sail changes over the course of the race, so nobody got much sleep at all.

adix london yacht

We also had guests on board for the race, and so not only were we working the boat, we were also making sure that they were happy and looked after (although this was mainly taken care of by a separate part of the crew). It was bizarre to be struggling down the side deck with miles of cloth whilst bashing along in the middle of the night, trying to re-pack the spinnaker in howling wind and rain, and to glance into the deck salon and see a peaceful candle-lit dinner taking place on the gimbaled table! ….However, we were all well fed and looked after, and I think the race was very enjoyable (if tiring) for all… After a time spent in first place, we finally finished (out of 70) 11th overall and 2nd in Class. For me, it had been amazing and awe-inspiring, challenging and tiring, but ultimately very exciting to finally sail Adix. I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time at the helm, and it was quite a feeling to have 270 tonnes of sailing ship at your fingertips. The contrast between the aft deck, which usually seems quite peaceful and dry even when going to weather, and the foredeck, which was very wet and loud indeed, was remarkable.

adix london yacht

After the race we sailed back into Falmouth harbour and anchored amongst the many little boats scattered around. Our time in Antigua was not over yet – we still had Antigua Classics to prepare for, and I still had to get my own tiny boat back into the water, and decide what on earth to do with her. But first, we were to go on a cruise with our guests down to Greneda and Barbados, and I was along for the ride. For better or worse, I was slowly getting to know Adix, and to understand and appreciate the work and the history behind this unique and wonderful vessel.

The majestic 65-metre sailing yacht Adix was hauled out at in August 2014 to start a major 8-month winter refit program at Pendennis . Mega yacht Adix is currently located in the second of Pendennis’ two new 90m construction halls.

65m super yacht ADIX

Superyacht Adix is undergoing engineering works which include new generators and main engine. Paintworks will be completed in situ, benefitting from Pendennis’ highly efficient environmentally controlled paint environment serviced by a custom designed ducting system which has been built into our new construction halls. The Pendennis team is also redesigning the yacht’s deck house, which will be moved further forward and combined with a seating area to provide better interaction with the Owner’s accommodation.

Luxury yacht Adix has competed twice in the Pendennis Cup and this will be the fourth time that this classic three-masted schooner has undergone works in Falmouth. The relationship dates back to 1991 at which time Adix underwent a transom modification and full interior strip out.

The yacht was originally brought to the yard in 1991 to undergo a complete programme of refit and repair, including a transom modification, 6m extension and full interior strip out. She has since paid subsequent visits to our yard in 2001, 2008, and returned in 2014 for her fourth refit. Adix returned to Falmouth in April 2014 to compete in the fourth edition of the Pendennis Cup following which she was hauled out to begin a comprehensive 8-month refit programme. The Schooner underwent engineering works which included the installation of new generators and main engine, the yacht’s weight was assessed and the ballast was reconfigured to improve her weight by over 18 tonnes.

Paintworks were completed in situ whilst she was based in one of our 90m construction halls. The Pendennis team redesigned the yacht’s deck house, which was moved further forward and combined with a seating area to provide better interaction with the Owner’s accommodation. After enjoying the summer cruising period Adix returned for final topside works including new lighter carbon and alluminium rigging to complete her 2014/5 refit.

During her 2009 visit Adix underwent scratch and gloss paint work, Lloyd’s and MCA surveys with a major engineering overhaul on her generators and main engines and cosmetic work on her external deckhouses. At the time the 370 tonne three masted schooner was the largest yacht to be lifted out by Pendennis’ 400 tonne travel hoist.

This three masted schooner was originally named ‘Jessica’, owned by an Argentine, and rigged with square sails on her foremast. She had a significantly shorter length overall in comparison to her 212′(65m) now.

In the mid-late 1980’s she was bought by Alan Bond who used her as a promotional tool and who crudely named the yacht after his beer, ‘XXXX’.

Around 1989 XXXX was bought by a Spanish family, who employed Paul Goss as the Captain who undertook a massive project in refining her looks. He worked with the expertise of the naval architect Gerard Dijkstra. The subsequent refit included cutting the hull in half and adding a section, creating a different underwater configuration and lengthening her spas.

Since then ‘Adix’ has been around the world a number of times turning heads wherever she sails. She attended the Fife Regatta on the Clyde in 2003 and 2008 with her ‘tender’, ‘ The Lady Anne ‘. She has been based out of Valencia since the 2007 America’s Cup event and has carried out extensive refits at Pendennis Shipyard in 2001 and 2009.

2014 finds her back in Pendennis again, this time for a serious upgrade that includes reinforcing the hull, with new longer carbon masts and carbon rigging. More in our article here.

Thousands evacuated from central London buildings after gas leak

A picture of the street in south London cordoned off by police

Thousands of office workers and residents were evacuated after a gas leak in one of London’s busiest areas.

Around 2,000 people along Southwark Street were told to leave by firefighters and police, with uncontained gas having the potential to cause large explosions which can destroy buildings.

Fire officials said just before 5.10pm that a team was working to ‘isolate’ the leak and make the area safe.

A huge safety cordon was put in place and traffic was heavy after the busy Southwark Street was closed between Blackfriars Road and Bear Lane.

The road was later reopened while a ‘reduced cordon remains in place’ while work continues, a spokesperson for the gas company SGN told Metro.co.uk.

‘The majority of properties are now able to be reoccupied, including all residential addresses, restaurants and hotels. Just three offices and a museum remain evacuated,’ they said.

‘We’re very sorry for the inconvenience caused this afternoon to people who work and live in the area.’

People were previously told to steer clear of the area to avoid getting caught up in the gridlock.

Southwark Street

Shortly before 4pm, London Fire Brigade said: ‘We remain at the scene of a suspected gas leak in Southwark Street, by the junction of Great Suffolk Street.

‘Around 2,000 people have been evacuated from buildings as a precaution with no injuries reported.

‘Traffic is very heavy and people are advised to keep avoiding the area.’

Southwark Street is a major road near the Thames in south London, close to the Tate Modern, the Globe Theatre and Borough Market.

Inside the flying pyramid yacht that looks like it came from a sci-fi show

M ost people can only dream of sailing the world’s oceans in a luxury yacht – but these new plans are so incredible they wouldn’t be out of place in a science fiction TV show.

The idea of a yacht lifting out of the sea and flying through the air would seem impossible to most people.

But one London-based designer is trying to bring the flying yacht into reality.

Nicknamed the ‘flying pyramid’ due to its shape, Tetra’s concept design would use hydrofoil to make it appear as if it is flying above the water.

Hydrofoil designs have multiple hullsand vanes which help the vessel lift off the surface of the water. Only a small part of the ship touches the water, massively reducing drag and offering a smoother and faster ride.

Designer Jonathan Schwinge has taken foiling technology, in use since the 1900s, and brought it into the present with a modern, sci-fi twist.

‘The design is instigated by the re-thinking of the form, superstructure and propulsion of the modern superyacht into a radically simple enclosure and an elevated mode of travel above the water line,’ he told The Sun .

When travelling at low speed, the Tetra would use the three hulls on its underside, but after it takes off, a torpedo-shaped foil will extend down from the hull which will help to lift the yacht out of the water.

Superyacht will reportedly have a speed of 17.2mph during take-off, reaching up to 43.7mph while cruising above the water.

The design would include an auto-pilot ‘fly-by-light’ borrowed from the aviation industry, to help take control during bad weather.

Tetra would be built from carbon fibre and stainless steel, but despite its huge size it would only be able to accommodate 10 people, including the crew.

When docked, the superyacht will be able to unfold three sides of this body to become a ‘sun deck’ – an outdoor lounge area with dining facilities and access to the sea.

The design is still being worked on, and while Tetra’s potential cost hasn’t yet been revealed, it’s sure to be extremely pricy.

But surely, the opportunity to fly across the water like a James Bond supervillian or an extra-terrestrial in a spacecraft would be worth any price tag?
