Cockwells launches new 10.5m Titian Tender
by Miranda Blazeby
British yard Cockwells has launched its new 10.5 metre superyacht tender called the Titian Tender. The yard unveiled the bespoke project in front of invited guests, staff and marine industry specialists at Falmouth’s Port Pendennis Marina in May.
Based on a concept by British design studio RWD, the tender features interiors by Cullum Bespoke, who brought experience from the world of luxury car customisation.
The Titian Tender was constructed at the yard’s Mylor facility using a combination of durable modern composites, yellow cedar and teak.
With a 2.8 metre beam, the Titian Tender can accommodate six guests for a day on the water who can relax under the shade of an electric bimini. On-board amenities include a galley with microwave oven, heads compartment with electric shower and a coffee machine.
The crew will appreciate the high-end systems, from the Empirbus control system to the electric anchor launcher and joystick controls.
Power comes from a pair of 320hp Yanmar 8LV engines twinned to Hamilton jet drives. This propulsion system, combined with the super-shallow draught of just 0.55 metres will enable the Titian Tender to explore shallow bays and remote anchorages.
Dave Cockwell, founder and managing director of Cockwells, said the Titian Tender “makes a statement.” “Cockwells is gaining renown across the globe for its expertise in elevating the traditional skills of the artisan boatbuilder to meet the needs of the most discerning clients,” he added.
“We pride ourselves on resolving complex design challenges and incorporating innovations that meet the client’s precise requirements.”
The British boatbuilder will be hoping to repeat the success of its 9.5 metre limousine, which won the Tender and Support Vessel Design category at the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017.
