Just recieved a press release on an electric boat that could very well become a popular tender. It features some neat new ideas, mostly in the form of a retractable hardtop. This is really worth taking a look at.

From the creative genes that brought you the LearJet...

WALLY TENDER

Yeah the Tender is a cool boat but how come you never see any in north america or the carribean

This will be the tender on my Palmer Johnson 150 Sport Yacht.

ONE of them anyways.

Chris Craft

I have recently purchased a rather nice Chris Craft 28 Launch which the owner has named 'The Dinghy'
Gorgeous boat that has it's serious disadvantages but in reality looks the part and that what seems to matter.

Thumbs up

Djezus ...

Took me over 30min. to read and view all the posts in this topic.

To put it in short :

Any architect building a "mega" / "giga" - yacht these days should be shot for not having looked at this thread and see what's out there.

Must be the most complete topic anywhere that is specific about tenders.

Might be a good idea to create a seperate section on the forum for this since it is a critical part of any yacht out there and with so much choices in styling (RIB, power, classic, ...) and purpose (people-carrier, supply, fuel, ...) I would asume that it would bring only more value to this undervalued forum. (Although this forum most likely is number one, it still is undervalued )

nice

it looks nice
However needs a few changes to be mega tender pratical (well as if any of them are practical??)
1. The step on the transom is good but where does it go? The engine hatch would need a step too as it looks very slippery.
2. The rails need gaps in the bow and on the beam to ease people access from the dock/ship, as they are now I could see people tripping on them or even standing on them and slipping.

On the plus there is lots of seating and I suspect it would be a fairly dry boat.

Yes offcorse there will be a "teaked" transit area on the engine hatch and in front
at bow like picture and also a side entry trough openings in rails and a flip-out inside ladder.
Dry , fast ride for 10 guest that include a spaceful toilet room inside center console.

In the category of "actual" mega-yacht tenders, here is Star Ship's tender. It's a 38' Intrepid. Seriously nice center-console boat! Spotted at the Marriot Basin.

nice boat;
just hate the lack of power...
they should have went for a flat stern, that way there would have been place for the other two engines...
