Design Brief

"A yacht is expected to be luxurious. It should be pleasing to view and offer extreme comfort for its owner and guests. But a yacht is also a boat. Wendon takes pride in making them soundly constructed, safe, and functional; with attention to performance. It is why we can say, LUXURY WITHOUT COMPROMISE".....  Excerpt from the Wendon Website
