Cockwells builds two new superyacht tenders for 70m Perini Navi ketch

Cockwells builds two new superyacht tenders for 70m Perini Navi ketch

The Cockwells boatyard in England has started building a seven metre sports tender and a seven metre limo tender for a 70 metre Perini Navi ketch.

The two superyacht tenders will have the same hull but there the similarities will end – the deck lay-outs and outfitting will be completely different and notably the limousine tender will feature an ingenious mechanism whereby the entire roof and helm stations are removable and can be stowed away, in order to to enable the boat to fit into her dedicated garage under the foredeck of the sailing superyacht.

Both superyacht tenders are being built using composite carbon fibre in combination with other materials such as titanium at the renowned British yard. As well as having standard features such as heating, air conditioning, marine sound systems, a shower and courtesy lighting, the tenders will also have luxurious interiors to match the Italian-built mother ship, as well as the latest CAN bus technology to control all systems. They will both be powered by Yanmar engines producing up to 260hp. Both tenders are currently in build at Cockwells and work is on track for a summer delivery, in time for the launch of the ketch.

Meanwhile Cockwells has just launched and delivered a stunning 7.5 metre superyacht tender built in mahogany and maple. The one-off launch was sea trialled successfully in Falmouth Harbour, Cornwall, and delivered to the owner earlier this year.
