February 20, 2023 Motorboat & Yachting: Duchy Sport Review

Have you ever seen a more regal looking watersports boat than this?!

Cockwells wouldn’t be the first yard you’d think of approaching to build a specialist watersports boat but that’s exactly what the owner of a modern American wakesurfing boat did when he decided to upgrade to something bigger. The end result looked so good that Cockwells decided to make it a permanent addition to its Duchy range of composite cruisers.

 

If watersports aren’t your thing, you don’t have to specify the twin 250-litre ballast tanks and oversized trim tabs this one has fitted to create the perfect wake – but the punchy 370hp diesel Yanmar V8s, which endow this heavily built planing hull with a top speed of almost 40 knots, should prove equally appealing to buyers looking for a fast and comfortable day boat.
 
Its styling may be more Cornwall than Costa Smeralda but with its big T-Top, aft sunpads, sociable seating and safe walkaround side decks leading to yet more sunpads on the foredeck, this is a very British alternative to the big open Fjords, Pardos and Axopars that populate most Mediterranean bays.
