A marine architect has caused a splash after designing a boat which has scooped an international award.
Andrew Wolstenholme, of Westbourne Road, Coltishall, created a superyacht tender for Cockwells boatbuilders. The Cornish firm won the tender and support vessel design category at the 2017 Boat International Media ShowBoats Design Awards in Austria.
Mr Wolstenholme designed the 9.5m Limousine tender, for an 88ft superyacht, which won the award.
Mr Wolstenholme said: “Our aims for the boat included to be able to carry the superyacht’s passengers in comfort.
“With a spacious saloon for up to 12 guests, her soft leather and warm wood interior creates an environment that radiates luxury and serenity even at her top speed of more than 30 knots. She also had to have a very low overall height so that the boat can fit in the hold on the mother ship.”
