PSM Plays Part in Substantial Historic Superyacht Restoration

PSM Instrumentation is normally known for their projects with tankers, trawlers, naval ships and offshore vessels, but were recently selected to work on the restoration of the historic Superyacht ‘Malahne’.

The 50m classic ‘Malahne’ was relaunched earlier this year at Pendennis Shipyard, Falmouth, UK after a massive and meticulous 30-month restoration project, which has restored her to her original pre-war glory, yet at the same time fully modernising her. Designed by Charles E Nicholson and built by Camper & Nicholsons in 1937, ‘Malahne’ is one of a small number of pre-war motor yachts to have survived until the 21st Century.

Nicholas Edmiston, Chairman of Edmiston & Company, had followed the chequered history of the yacht for decades and in his own words, “I was fortunate to interest an Owner who understood and embraced this vision, and who entrusted Edmiston to pull together a team that could bring Malahne back to life.” Nick subsequently organized a project team and shipyard, who shared the passion and transformed this dream into a reality.

PSM was chosen to work on this historic project to update the transmitters and switches on board for all service, fuel oil and fresh water tanks. The restoration required that the very highest quality materials were used throughout, and PSM’s approved transmitters and switches were selected based on their proven performance in the harshest of conditions.

The ‘Malahne’ has undergone one of the most ambitious restorations of all time, and PSM had been delighted to have played a role in this.
