March 23, 2023 Cockwells’ tenders star alongside Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx in new Netflix Original

Our superyacht tender, Grace is taking her turn in the spotlight with none other than Cameron Diaz at the helm.

The leading American actress has recently been spotted steering this luxury craft on the River Thames, filming scenes for a new Netflix Original action comedy, entitled Back in Action, which will air either later this year or early in 2024.
 
Preview shots of a thrilling night-time chase scene that takes place across London on land and water not only feature Ms Diaz aboard Grace. Our Duchy Sport also takes part in the action.
 
The upcoming movie, directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon and with a script by Neighbors’ writer, Brendan O’Brien, also stars Jamie Foxx and Glenn Close, and marks Ms Diaz’s return to acting after a pause to raise her daughter.
 
Our custom-built vessels are no stranger to the limelight. Last year, our head-turning Titian Tender performed a starring role in international fashion brand, Michael Kors’ promotional campaign for its Fall 2022 collection and could be seen in all her glory, speeding along the River Thames in The Thrill of the Chase, featuring Bella Hadid and Alton Mason.
 
“Our superyacht tender, Grace is powered by twin 250hp Yanmar engines and propelled by outdrive legs, and hits a speedy 38 knots, which is perfect for action-packed shoots,” explains Founder & Managing Director, Dave Cockwell. “If you would like to find out more about other vessels that are available to hire for film shoots and advertising campaigns, head to our Contact Us page to make an enquiry.”
