Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding has been nominated for a Classic Boat Award and needs your support.

Cockwells is in the running in the Powered Vessel category for its Hardy 42, which was the first Hardy to be completed by the Mylor-based boatbuilder and launched in Cornish waters following its acquisition of the Hardy brand in 2020.

The winner will be decided by a public vote.

The Classic Boat Awards, in association with Classic Marine, celebrate the best newly-built boats and restorations in the world of classic and traditional boatbuilding.

Cockwell’s founder and MD, Dave Cockwell, said: “Having inherited a Hardy 42 that was already in build when we acquired Hardy’s assets, it was our task to complete the craft for owners who planned to explore the inland waterways of Europe under electric power but wished to retain the renowned seakeeping capabilities of the original design for offshore passages.

“This not only provided us with the opportunity to build our first hybrid diesel/electric motor yacht – the Hardy 42 Hybrid that was launched at the Southampton International Boat Show in 2021. It also enabled us to demonstrate the complex technical capabilities that we have gained through custom-building Duchy Motor Launches and state-of-the-art superyacht tenders.”
