A Mylor-based classic boat builder is recruiting extra staff following a successful showing at the London Boat Show earlier this month.
Cockwells received two orders for its Duchy 27 motorboat, valued in excess of £300k.
MD Dave Cockwell commented: “The sales reflect a growing confidence in the leisure market which is great for all of us.
“I believe, as an industry we need to build ourselves out of the recession with high quality products and a friendly and efficient service.”
As a result of the purchases and the growing popularity of the Mylor Creek Boatyard, where Cockwells is based, the company is now looking to recruit two new experienced shipwrights.
