Adela has made regular use of Vilanova as a Mediterranean service base since 2019. On her first visit she berthed in the marina and received technical assistance from Pendennis' engineering and electrical teams while afloat. Later that year, she hauled out for a general maintenance period including anti-fouling, tank cleaning and servicing of various mechanical equipment. In October 2021 her mast was de-stepped and laid out for servicing on our spacious hardstanding.
