Luxury motor yachts of the highest quality
Duchy 35by Cockwells
Cockwells design and custom-build superyacht tenders and motor yachts of the highest quality for 21st century leisure and commerce.
With exquisite craftsmanship they combine a quarter of a century’s boatbuilding experience with technological innovation, ingenious design and modern materials, to push the boundaries of the possible, resulting in outstanding performance, luxury and longevity.
The Duchy 35 model has been created specifically for cruising and relaxing in style and beautifully showcases the interior joinery where our oak is used.
Designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, this vessel has a spacious cockpit and expansive saloon, with a well-equipped galley, all-round windows and a shower compartment, all finished with bespoke hardwood joinery, depending on the clients needs.
Oak is one of the most popular choices thanks to its rich and warm appearance. Prominent grain patterns add elegance and beauty to interior spaces, and its classic and timeless appeal complements almost every theme found on yachts.
Another reason for selecting oak is because of its exceptional strength and durability, meaning it can withstand the rigors of the marine environment, including the constant exposure to moisture, saltwater, and sunlight.
It is also relatively stable and less likely to expand or contract significantly with changes in temperature and humidity. This stability helps maintain the structural integrity of the joinery and prevents problems such as loose fittings or gaps.
“We use Hewins for all our oak requirements and they are always a pleasure to deal with,” comments Ian Cunnington, Pre-Production Manager at Cockwells.
“The quality of the timber is matched with expert advice from their team who are always on hand to help with any queries or requests. Hewins is a supplier that is flexible to our demands, with high-quality oak at an affordable price.”
