The remodelled sailing yacht M5, formerly known as Mirabella V, left Falmouth recently following an extensive 24 month refit at Pendennis Shipyard.

Since the yacht’s arrival at the yard in the spring of 2012, M5’s project scope grew extensively with the owner’s team working tirelessly to remodel and modernise this icon of the superyacht industry.

The project brought together a number of well-known industry names to bring the owner’s vision to life. New lightweight carbon rigging was designed and manufactured by Carbo-link with OYS making all the fittings. Marine Results fitted all the rigging onto the mast. An elegant art deco inspired interior created by the team at Redman Whiteley Dixon.

Following the completion of her final fit-out, sail trials and systems testing earlier this year M5 left Falmouth bound for the South Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Rocka Romcke, captain and owner’s rep on M5 said: “We are all incredibly proud of our involvement in and management of the extensive refit on M5. Working together with all of our key project partners, we have given M5 a new lease of life and prepared her for her next adventure.”
