After selling its first model to China, Cockwells is planning to take on more staff
Cornish motorboat manufacturer Cockwells has announced plans to expand its operations, following a highly successful summer.
The custom boatbuilder is aiming big, following a successful showing at last month’s Monaco Yacht Show (24-27 September), which saw its first sale to the Chinese market.
The 9.5m Limousine model will be used as a tender for an 88-metre superyacht, the yard told local newspaper Falmouth Packet.
Managing director Dave Cockwell told the news provider: “I am very much looking forward to expanding our skilled team of craftsmen here at Cockwells with more self-motivated and keen individuals in order to meet the growing demand.”
He added that moving into international market has always been a key part of their long-term growth strategy.

Earlier this year Cockwells expanded its range with the 33 Impulsive and the 27 Launch (pictured above), about which boat test editor Jack Haines wrote: “Sometimes you have to step back and admire a boat for its sheer beauty.”
