Cockwells Boat Yard Fire at Ponsharden Falmouth

Multiple crews from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service responded when a significant fire broke out at Cockwells Modern and Classic Boatbuilding Ltd pre-production manufacturing site at Ponsharden on 00:08 of the night between Wednesday and Thursday morning sixteen May. Falmouth crews were first on the scene and found the building well alight. Additional crews were mobilised from Tolvaddon, Helston, Newquay, Truro Community fire stations to assist, along with two officers and specialist vehicles from Perranporth and St Just community fire stations.  No one was injured in the fire with Cockswell later saying the fire damaged no boat and should have limited effects to the production of Duchy Motor Launches and Hardy Motor Yachts, and will not affect that of Cockwells’ Superyacht Tenders, which are built at Cockwells’ sister site in Mylor Creek Boatyard.
Cockswell was founded in 1996 and today offers a line of five series; Superyacht Tenders, Duchy Motor Launches, Hardy Motor Yachts, Commercial and Defence, and Custom Builds.  Cockwells pleasure focused brands are Duchy a down east inspired line which debuted in 2011 following the redesigning of the Aquila 27 mold, and Hardy which it purchased in 2020.
