Been doing some more researSanta Mach. I'm learning some more about these tenders and the manufacturers. Santa Maria has a fairly big Duarry 11.95M tender. I believe it is too large to carry aboard so it is either towed or shipped if Santa Maria embarks on long voyages. Its specs are as follows:
Duarry Tender |
NOTE: This tender is equipped to be towed and is shipped or towed for major passages.

BEAM: 3.792 m (12’4”)

I have never heard about this type of tender untill now. I still really do not know what the main tender for SM looks like though... anyone with pics of this.
She has two other tenders, those are carried aboard. A 21 foot Castoldi and a 12 foot long Novraina crew tender.
