In late 2013 Cockwells delivered the 30ft tender to the ‘Grace E’, built to a Wolstenholme design. With her epoxy infused waterjet powered hull she comfortably achieves speeds in excess of 40knots and drew considerable interest when displayed at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show. From the same moulds Cockwells have developed an outdrive powered version, shown above, which acted as a water taxi at the 2013 Monaco show and was displayed at the Dusseldorf boat show in January 2014.
Also based on the same hull mould but with a trimmed down sheer, the 30ft limousine tender for the superyacht ‘Illusion’ was launched early in 2016. She is powered by a single 370hp Yanmar diesel driving through an outdrive leg and provides luxurious cabin seating for 10 passengers. Overall design by Wolstenholme with interior detailing by Cockwells.
These matching 7m tenders launched in spring 2016 will be housed in the foredeck of a Perini sailing superyacht and are each powered by single 260hp Yanmar diesels driving through outdrive legs. The cabin trunk on the limousine tender lifts off and stows inverted in the same position, and the helm console and seats fold down, to reduce the overall height for stowage. Hull design and consultancy by Wolstenholme and deck and interior styling by Cockwells.
