September 21, 2022 Cockwells takes the art of the possible to new heights at MYS22

Acclaimed British boatbuilder, Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding imbues the art of the possible with new meaning when it comes to meeting the precise requirements of its discerning clientele by exhibiting two highly distinctive superyacht tenders at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show (MYS22), which takes place in the Principality from 28 September to 1 October.

From the sublime luxury and contemporary chic of the award-winning Titian Tender to the classic lines and elegant form of T/T Malahne, both are superb examples of Cockwells’ artistry, which underscores the skill of the artisan shipwright with technological innovation, outstanding performance and refined style.
Combining durable composites with the resilience of yellow cedar and the sleekness of teak, the custom Titian Tender is a modern masterpiece with her copper-infused caulking, silk panels imbued with original fine art and bespoke carpentry.
From stainless steel fittings that have been specifically cast, a virtual anchor and the hugely manoeuvrable twin jet drive to the dynamic positioning of the touchscreen-operated digital switching system, the Corian® and copper galley, and the automated Bimini cover, the Titian Tender is finished to superyacht industry standards in every aspect and demonstrates Cockwells’ matchless capacity for delivering one-of-a-kind custom builds.
But the head-turning Titian Tender has another story to tell.

A previous winner of the Pre-1980s category of the Concours d’Elégance at the Cannes Yachting Festival and a Highly Commended in the Superboats category of the 2019 Motor Boat of the Year Awards, the ultra-luxurious Titian Tender is no stranger to being in the limelight.

But now, this glamorous synthesis of speed and style is performing a starring role in international fashion brand, Michael Kors’ promotional campaign for its Fall 2022 collection and can be seen in all her glory, speeding along the River Thames.

Michael Kors’ new feature film – directed by Baron Films – and associated advertising campaign, The Thrill of the Chase, are set in London and show ultimate jet-setter, Bella Hadid leading Alton Mason to new heights in a case of mistaken identity.

“At Cockwells, nothing is impossible,” explains Founder & Managing Director, Dave Cockwell. “When Michael Kors contacted us to ask if they could hire the Titian Tender for their latest ad campaign, we relished the opportunity of partnering with such a prestigious luxury brand and are delighted with the result. With increased interest in the vessel on social media and the boat being based in Monaco, it made perfect sense, with the owner’s kind permission, for us to showcase the Titian Tender at MYS22.

The bespoke tender that Cockwells created for the restored 50m motor yacht, Malahne, to a design by G L Watson, turns heads in a different way as visitors to MYS22 will see for themselves.
To complement the look and feel of the mothership, T/T Malahne was designed with the spirit of the 1930s in mind with her varnished Brazilian mahogany hull and deck, quilted maple veneer trimming, strip-planked yellow cedar hull and chrome fittings cast from period originals.
Striking the perfect balance between classical elegance and up-to-the-minute technology, T/T Malahne can reach a speed of 35 knots courtesy of her 258hp Steyr engine, and transports up to eight guests and crew in style.
What’s more, she is for sale.
“After serving megayacht, Malahne well for the past eight years, her owners have commissioned a larger tender from Cockwells that will match the look and feel of the original but include more seating and a bigger engine for faster guest transfer,” adds Dave Cockwell.
Cockwells will also reveal a brand-new concept at MYS22 – for Alte Volare, a 12m Hydrofoil Limousine Tender that is the result of an extensive technical study.
“Utilising a fully electric drivetrain and retractable foiling technology to provide a quiet and comfortable ride, this limousine uses 80% less energy than a non-foiling hull at a fast-cruising speed,” explains Design Director, Henry Ward. “With striking styling and an ingenious layout that befits such a cutting-edge craft, this is a tender like no other.”
Folding midship boarding steps lead you into the centre cockpit area. Forward is comfortable bow seating for five guests with a removable infill cushion providing a large sun pad. Aft of the centre cockpit is the stylish, airy saloon with inward-facing seating for up to eight guests. Large wrap-over side glass creates a light and open feel, and twin reclined loungers at the rear of the boat provide an immersive view through a full aft picture window.
“Whether you require an electric limousine, a high-performance sports boat, a modular utility craft, a semi-custom crew RIB or a chase vessel, our tenders are the ultimate piece of kit for busy owners and crew,” concludes Dave Cockwell.
“Pushing the boundaries of the possible when it comes to construction, electronics and engineering, we fuse advanced techniques and modern materials with intelligent design and exquisite craftsmanship to create unique tenders that complement motherships, personalities and lifestyles.
“As one of the largest and most well-established tender builders in the industry, we look forward to welcoming prospective clients to Stand QJ4 at the MYS22 Tender Show to demonstrate our flexibility, ingenuity and flair.”
Prices are available on application.
