Pendennis Shipyard finds superyacht standard laundry facilities with Miele Professional

Pendennis Shipyard is an award-winning company that custom builds and refits superyachts at its site in Falmouth.

As a business that produces the highest quality vessels, it also requires equipment that adheres to the standards of excellence which its customers are accustomed to, and the laundry machines on board its yachts are no different. 

After struggling to find appliances to suit the unique requirements of the marine world, Pendennis consulted with Miele Professional dealer, C R Wood Electrical, seven years ago and has used equipment from the German brand ever since.

The advantage of Miele is that, being a global organisation, it has an international parts and servicing service. As Pendennis’ superyachts travel and dock all over the world, they need to have easy access to a local engineer who can tend to machines as quickly as possible.

Pendennis’ boats range in shape and size, so while the company uses a range of different Miele Professional equipment, the Little Giants range is often in demand as they can fit easily into some of the smaller vessels.

Simon Truen from Pendennis Superyachts said: “Miele Professional is now the superyacht benchmark. It has such a strong reputation for quality and reliability that even the people who design and buy our boats are starting to notice. Architects and owners of superyachts are in agreement with us – Miele Professional is the only way to go.

“The worldwide services means we no longer have to fly engineers out to the boat, and that has saved us money as well as effort.

I would definitely recommend the Miele Professional brand, as they have continually provided reliable and high-quality services to our superyacht clientele.

The service we have received from C R Wood has been simply outstanding. We’re not their usual customer and have a very specific set of requirements, but they never say ‘we can’t do that’ or even ask why. Throughout the specification, ordering and aftersales stages, they’ve been incredibly helpful and solutions focused.”
