Shemara Case Study

January 19, 2015

Trend Marine were asked to be involved in a significant refit of the classic motor yacht Shemara. Originally launched in 1938 in the UK by JL Thornycroft, the yacht has led a fascinating history. Initially owned as a private yacht by the industrialist Sir Bernard Docker, the yacht was used extensively for entertaining along the Mediterranean coast. She was requisitioned during WWII as a training vessel. Her current owner was keen to restore the yacht to its former glory.

The refit was completed in the UK at the new Burgess Marine facility in Portsmouth. Trend Marine were on-hand with an in-house team to scan existing apertures. The data taken was converted to 3D files to enable manufacture of the glass panels.

At the extensive production site in Norfolk Trend Marine have the facilities to process many different types of glass for Superyachts. For Shemara this included made-to-measure electric opening windows, heated wheelhouse glass, and replacement portlight glass. Switchable
