Classic luxury yacht MALAHNE is a 50m motor yacht designed by Camper & Nicholsons and built by William Laurence Stependson. She was delivered in 1937.
In 2015, the yacht's 30-month refit was completed by Pendennis Shipyard of Falmouth, UK. In charge of the exterior and crew areas was Classic yacht experts G. L. Watson & Co., while her interior guest spaces were meticulously reinstated by Guy Oliver of Oliver Laws Ltd.
MALAHNE is a yacht of stature, steeped in history and fame. She served in World War II, participating in the evacuation of Dunkirk, France.
Later, she was owned by film producer Sam Spiegel and became one of Hollywood’s and the world’s most famous yachts. She served as the production headquarters for the making of Lawrence of Arabia and also hosted Hollywood stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas and Jack Nicholson.
Her meticulous restoration was an exceptional undertaking, with no expense spared. Hand painted panels, individually sourced antiques and exquisite fabrics all provide a harmonious ambiance, reflective of the deco styling of the 1930’s. With many changes over the years, including a major refit in the 1980’s which she was modernized to almost beyond recognizable, she has now been lovingly restored to her former glory and is looking better than ever.
