Preview of 9.5m Cockwells tender to third Vitruvius superyacht

Preview of 9.5m Cockwells tender to third Vitruvius superyacht

The new 9.5m tender for the 73 metre Vitruvius superyacht is being built by specialist custom boat builders Cockwells in Cornwall, UK.

Designed by Andrew Wolstenholme and Cockwells, the retro-style tender will have a lightweight composite hull, teak decking, a smoked glass custom windscreen and a folding bimini. With a generous 2.7 metre beam, its handcrafted cockpit will seat up to 12 guests on saltwater resistant leather upholstered banquettes, and refreshments under way will be served from a wet bar behind the helm. A electric head will be located in the forepeak, while the stern platform will come with a folding ladder and shower.

The 3.56 tonne tender will be powered by two 315hp Yanmar 6LPA engines and capable of a top speed of 40 knots.

This Cockwells tender is one of two destined for the 73 metre Explorer yacht, the third in the Vitruvius series (the first two being Exuma and Galileo G) and currently under construction at Perini Navi's Picchiotti yard in La Spezia, Italy. The superyacht has an interior designed by Rémi Tessier with accommodation for 12 guests and 20 crew spread over five decks. One of the decks is entirely devoted to wellness and the body beautiful with a gymnasium, sauna, steam bath and hydrotherapy, while the main deck has a lap pool. Designed to reach out-of-the-way places the yacht will also be equipped with a rescue boat, kayaks and diving equipment.
