Cockwells has just launched a new 9.5m limousine tender. She was specifically designed to fit within the dimension and weight restrictions of the tender garage and also to reflect the aesthetics of the mother ship. The use of a combination of carbon deck and superstructure and the latest composite products used for the hull keep the weight to a minimum.
This limousine has been designed by the in-house team at Cockwells in collaboration with naval architect Andrew Wolstenholme. She is equipped with a single 370hp Yanmar engine which takes her up to 36 knots with twelve passengers and two crew members onboard. Her EmpirBus system with custom touch screen dashboard allows for an easy control of all onboard electrical systems and gives the crew the opportunity to pre-set their preferred profiles. It controls everything onboard, from navigation lights to air-conditioning.
The boatyard says the high spec interior provides a very comfortable ride at high speeds whilst passengers can watch the horizon through the eye-level panoramic windows. The saloon has plenty of space for up to twelve guests and is furnished with soft leather lining and warm wood highlights to create an environment that radiates tranquillity at over 30 knots. She is also equipped with a Fusion marine stereo, heating and air conditioning.
The boat was built in 12 months and was launched just before Christmas. The yard has an order book which stretches to 2018 but says it can can usually create capacity for new projects with a tight deadline.
