Cook efficiently and still be
a part of the social scene.

Efficient use of lighting,

private ensuites...

A perfection of mechanical
and electrical systems...

Pilothouse & Command Bridge
The master helm resides in the raised Pilothouse and features full instrumentation, controls and displays. Ample room is provided for charts and other reference material. Next to the Pilothouse table and settee a sturdy ladder/staircase rises to the Command Bridge - with a wrap-around sectional sofa to comfortably seat seven guests. There is abundant stowage in the settee and the open bridge deck provides access to the aft deck and outer stowage lockers.

Main Salon
The large Main Salon area awaits your appointments and decorations. The onboard entertainment centre includes VCR/Television and AM/FM/CD stereo with antenna system. The bright open salon is finished in-house in beautifully detailed, cherry wood décor, joinery and cabinetry and is much what you would expect in mega-yacht styling, airy and spacious. The darkly tinted windows let in plenty of light while also preserving privacy.
A spacious aft deck is accessed by a large sliding glass door from the main salon and leads to the swim deck boarding platform at dock level.

The breathtaking Galley is forward on the same level, but partially separated from the salon by a cherry panelled island and overhead china cabinet. The gourmet galley is fitted with a 7 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, electric 3 burner ceramic range top, a full size convection/microwave oven and Corian solid surface counter tops and sink. Drawer and cabinet storage is abundant, and the quality is hard to compare. The cook can work efficiently and still be a part of the social scene.

The lower accommodations level is accessed via a delightful spiral staircase starboard of the main helm. At the foot of the staircase the VIP Stateroom is forward and the Master Stateroom is aft. The Master Stateroom berth is positioned about dead centre of the yacht where the motion is least. Both staterooms feature island queen-size berths, efficient use of lighting, aromatic cedar lined closets and ensuites with showers and Vacuflush heads. The storage is impressive in each stateroom.

Engine Room
The engine room - entered from the aft deck - is the heart of the Wendon 480. The generator provides ample power and is enclosed in a sound shield cabinet for a very quiet operation. Powered by twin 420 horsepower Caterpillar 3126 turbo diesels the 480 performance pilothouse yacht cruises comfortably at around 16 knots. The engine room clearly makes a statement of integrity for Wendon Yachts. When you inspect the perfection of the mechanical and electrical systems, you then understand the degree of excellence to which Wendon Yachts are constructed.

On modern yachts great expectations are placed on electrical systems. The systems must be safe, meet or exceed recognized standards, provide trouble-free operation, and have all the wire runs and connections neatly installed. Wendon Yachts is confident that electrical installation on its yachts sets a very high standard for craftsmanship and is the best you will find anywhere.

The 480 is an incredibly well built yacht with uncompromising Wendon quality.
