A Cornish yacht builder is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the first launch of its new yacht in Cornish waters.

Following Cockwells Modern & Classic Boatbuilding’s acquisition of Hardy Marine’s assets last year, the award-winning company is marking its 25th anniversary in business with the launch of its first Hardy 42 in Cornish waters.

Described by Motor Boat & Yachting magazine as ‘the serious cruiser’s choice’, the Hardy 42 is described by Cockwells as an exceptional vessel with outstanding sea-keeping capability 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 brand of all-weather motor yachts, designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, to incorporate hybrid propulsion and a digital switching system for full control and monitoring of all the vessel’s systems via the 16” Raymarine displays in the wheelhouse and flybridge helm positions.

Cockwells will be continuing to build the Hardy 42 to its traditional design, but the company has also designed two entirely new models – the Hardy 45 and Hardy 53 – in the hopes it can deliver the ultimate modern cruising experience for multi-generational maritime adventures, for which it will launch detailed specifications at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show.

"Whether you plan to navigate great seaways, island-hop in the Caribbean, stay close to the coast of the British Isles; fancy a Baltic crossing, cruising inland waterways, or sailing the Mediterranean, across to Malta and out into the Aegean Sea, the possibilities are endless.

"As with our popular range of Duchy Motor Launches, you can have any layout you choose.

"Whether you opt for a galley in the saloon, and a larger VIP guest cabin forward with separate heads and shower cubicle in your Hardy 45; wish to convert the third cabin of your Hardy 53 into storage space for your paddleboards, bikes and other toys, or create a fourth cabin by incorporating the galley within the saloon, we can create a Hardy that is uniquely yours.
