Cockwells bespoke superyacht tenders shortlisted in international industry awards

Two head-turning superyacht tenders designed and custom-built by Cornish boatbuilder, Cockwells have been shortlisted in the Tender & Support Vessel Design category of the prestigious international 2017 ShowBoats Design Awards.

The Mylor-based boatbuilder’s 7m Compact Convertible Limousine and 9.5m Limousine have both reached the finals of this coveted award.

The ShowBoats Design Awards honour the creative talents behind the most innovative, elegant and inspiring new yacht designs from the drawing boards of the world’s leading yacht design studios and award trophies in twelve categories that include the best sailing and motor yacht interiors, exteriors and naval architecture designs.

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted in this highly contested category of a truly global industry awards scheme,” comments Founder & Managing Director, Dave Cockwell. “This nomination is testament to our winning partnership with renowned naval architect, Andrew Wolstenholme and the skill and ingenuity of our in-house team. Their capacity to custom-build in exquisite detail to the precise requirements of our growing client base is second to none.”

Incorporating luxury, style and outstanding performance with superior craftsmanship and the latest technology, Cockwells custom-built the 7m Compact Convertible Limousine for Perini Navi’s award-winning superyacht, Sybaris. Utilising their powers of ingenuity to create a craft that complemented her shallow tender garage, Cockwells designed the limousine with a detachable roof built from ultra-lightweight materials, which can be flipped and stored within the well of the cockpit when the tender is not in use.

The 9.5m Limousine was built as a tender to an 88m superyacht and demonstrates Cockwells’ seemingly limitless flexibility when it comes to delivering exclusive custom-builds without compromise on quality or seakeeping. With a spacious saloon for up to 12 guests, her soft leather and warm wood interior creates an environment that radiates luxury and serenity even at her top speed of more than 30 knots.

The ShowBoats Design Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday 5 February in Kitzbühel, Austria.
