Dartmouth Owners' Club 2018

“We collected our beautiful, new Duchy 27 in Falmouth and were accompanied by the Cockwells team in two matching boats to Dartmouth on a bumpy sea. It was an excellent introduction to our boat and how well she behaves in lively conditions. Moored to the Town Quay in Dartmouth, the team polished and shined our top sides and guard rails for us until she gleamed. The next day we set off in company to Salcombe, to raft up and transfer to the very pretty Duchy 21. A delightful cruise up the river took us to the excellent pub at South Pool for lunch. On our return to Dartmouth we were treated to the best fish and chips ever in our cockpit, with nine of us seated round the table in comfort. Our continuing journey to Chichester Harbour the next day was easy but we missed the excellent company we had enjoyed in Dartmouth!” – Owners of ‘Sandpiper’

Unveiling the Titian tender and opening the Lock House

Combining durable composites with the resilience of yellow cedar and the sleekness of teak, we unveiled our ultra-luxurious Titian Tender at Falmouth’s Port Pendennis Marina on the 18th of May before a gathering of invited guests.
