A public vote could help secure a brace of awards for Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding at the upcoming Classic Boat Awards.

Cockwells’ latest model in the Duchy Motor Launch series – the Twin Cabin Duchy 35 – that was unveiled at the 2019 Southampton International Boat Show has been shortlisted in the Powered Vessels category.

And historic Falmouth working boat, Bessie – which has been restored by Cockwells’ apprentices – has been nominated in the Restoration of the Year (under 40ft) class.

Founder and MD, Dave Cockwell, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted twice in this prestigious industry awards scheme and hope that the public will support us by voting for the Twin Cabin Duchy 35 as well as Bessie.

“These vessels showcase the breadth of our expertise from the artisan skills of the traditional shipwright to the style, seakeeping and technical innovation that we are renowned for at the luxury end of the market.”

You can vote online for Cockwells between now and midnight on March 9 by clicking here.

Winners will be announced in the May issue of Classic Boat magazine, published on April 3.
