A traditional boatbuilder in a modern world

dave cockwell building a wooden boatCockwells for custom yachts and classic yacht restoration.

From custom yachts, motor launches to superyacht tenders each Cockwells yacht is a bespoke project designed and built to the owner’s precise requirements.

Our traditional shipwrights' skills, combined with advanced engineering and boatbuilding techniques, enable us to create outstanding leisure and commercial vessels built to high standards and ideal for the modern world.

Where appropriate, we combine this with the use of modern materials, including high-tech composites, to increase durability and reduce the need for ongoing maintenance.

From custom superyacht tenders to luxury yachts, each custom craft is finished with meticulous detail.

In days gone by, people could go directly to a boatyard to commission a boat of their choice rather than having to choose from those available from existing manufacturers.

Our mission is to continue this tradition and offer this level of service to those who appreciate fine vessels and time-served craftsmanship. Our owners love the craft we create and we’re proud to include some of their comments in this website.

People who come to Cockwells are looking for something a little different. They want a classical look and feel with the benefits of modern advances in technology. We make sure they don't have to compromise.
