Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding has created a second tender for Malahne, the 50m classic motor yacht built by Camper & Nicholsons in 1937, in the Art Deco style.
Malahne not only valiantly participated in the evacuation of Dunkirk during World War II but also served as the production headquarters for the Hollywood blockbuster, Lawrence of Arabia, and hosted many film stars aboard at the time.
Maintaining the classic, opulent finish of the first tender for Malahne that Cockwells built to complement the mothership in 2016, this new vessel, with her cold-moulded construction for the hull and deck, clad with varnished Brazilian mahogany, and helm console trimmed with quilted maple veneer, “strikes the perfect balance between classical elegance and enhanced engineering to provide outstanding performance for modern leisure”.
Whilst showcasing the artisan craftsmanship, this new craft, built in collaboration with Wolstenholme Yacht Design, also demonstrates the company’s prowess in utilising up-to-the-minute technology and advanced electrical systems within the context of traditional refinement.
Cockwells founder and MD, Dave Cockwell, said: “Our original tender served megayacht, Malahne, well for the past eight years but now her owners have commissioned a new version from Cockwells that matches the superlative look and feel of the original but includes increased seating, situated around the central helm position for practicality and comfort, as well as a punchier engine for faster guest transfer.”
