An all-British team built Sarafsa at the Devonport Royal Dockyard. Since then, the shipyard has changed ownership. After a few months of uncertainty, Pendennis acquired Devonport Yachts, allowing the shipyard to continue building bespoke yachts with one-of-a-kind features.
28: Vava II
Vava II is the largest yacht built in the UK. Her beautiful exterior lines by Redman, Whiteley, Dixon envelop an interior by French designer and minimalist master Rémi Tessier. After construction began, shipyard owner Babcock sold yacht division Devonport Yachts to Pendennis. Construction continued in the original location in Plymouth, now the Pendennis Plus shipyard.
