A Falmouth-based boatbuilder is revealing a new concept at an international show in September.

Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding has said it is to reveal a new concept at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show.

The boatbuilder's has said the concept will be the latest vessel in its award-winning Duchy Motor Launches fleet – the Duchy Sport.

The concept will be revealed at the Southampton International Boat Show which will be taking place between 10 and 19 September at Mayflower Park.

The company will also showcase the first Hardy motor yacht to be launched in Cornish waters – the Hardy 42 Hybrid – as well as release the specifications for its Hardy 45 and Hardy 53.

The Duchy Sport is a new departure, defined by its capacity to leave other sports boats in its wake, as Cockwells’ Design Director, Henry Ward, explains:

"If you are looking for the ultimate family fun boat that is perfect for active water sports enthusiasts, relaxed sunbathers and everyone in between, then the Duchy Sport is for you.

"Conceived from a brief to produce the best wake surfing boat around, the Duchy Sport has now been developed to offer a whole lot more.

"As well as creating the perfect wave to surf, she also delivers all kinds of creature comforts for up to nine guests – from sunbeds and a wet bar to a forward cabin with day heads – all with the flair and high-end finish that you would expect from Cockwells."

Described by Motor Boat & Yachting as ‘the serious cruiser’s choice’, the Hardy 42 offers seakeeping at more than 25 knots.

The 31st Hardy 42, which is the first to be completed by Cockwells, is also the first of the Hardy all-weather motor yachts, designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, to incorporate hybrid propulsion.

In addition, a digital switching system for full control and monitoring of all the vessel’s systems can be accessed via the 16” Raymarine displays in both the wheelhouse and flybridge helm positions.
