MegaYacht Tenders II

I made a search for the old Meyacht Tenders but found that it was curtailed by the admin. So I think I shouldn't be prosecuted for creating a sister thread?

With that said, It is amazing to see the tenders that were built for the Feadship Predator. The main tenders have reverse bows like the mother ship. On the website of the builder of these tenders, they confirmed this.

Yachtwerft Meyer confirmed that the first tender was launched in January and was delievered to the Netherlands -To Feadship of course- where Predator was being built.

LOA: 8.80M
BOA: 2.80M
Speed: 42 knots
Engines: 2 X Steyr MO 256 H45, 183kw
Propulsion: Z-drive Mercury Bravo 3
Crew: 2
Passengers: 8

Aviva's woody

In the same breath, Yachtwerft Meyer have also built the A&R Aviva's woody tender. She has a very nice looking retro appeal to her. There is a PDF on the website to the woody:

Yup. Reverse bows... as ugly as they may be... have merit on big boats, but for tenders... you'll need foul weather gear on sunny days.

Almost looks like a sea-going coffin.

Wow... That Yachtwerft Meyer tender is terrible. A 28ft tender that can carry 8 people? That's ridiculous. Sure it looks cool, but a yacht that can carry a 28ft tender is going to have more than 8 people that they need to shuttle around. Itt's fast, but it's not fast enough to make up for 2-3 trips back and forth to pick up guests.

We have a Castoldi 17ft on our yacht, and I sincerely believe it is the best designed tender I've come across, even compared to Castoldi's larger ones. It can hold the same amount of people, in the same comfort and can get to 35kts, only a few kts slower than the Yachtwerft Meyer.

I must strongly disagree with your opinion on the Yachtwerft tender. This boat was custom built to the exact brief given by an experienced owner which was to carry 8 people. (the mother yacht also carries another larger capacity tender). At every stage during the planning and construction yachtwerft Meyer consulted with the owners rep and crew to ensure that this would be a good and suitable boat. It may not be a design to your taste but it is a very good tender. The styling in tended to be inkeeping with the mothership and it fits into a very specific tender bay, it can carry guests in any weather is a dry ride, it is very well engineered with good spacious access in the engine bay. Yachtwerft have justifiably gained a good reputation for building high quality custom tenders for large private yachts.

Hi,

I assume it is the Predator Tender you are ridiculing here for no guest capacity.

If you knew the full story of the mothership you would understand why it only carries 8 guests.

The carrying capacity/speed/style are all an owners choice.

We as members of the public are free to like or dislike what we see.

As the Reverend says the Yachtwerft Meyer boats are good boats, they are very well thought out and constructed of quality materials by a small dedicated and highly skilled workforce.

Jan Meyer is willing to listen to customers ideas and to add his own where he feels a customer is getting off track.

It is a pleasure to deal with this type of small family company who are willing to stand behind everything they make and sell. I can't say the same for some of my dealings with the large faceless organisatrions that punch out characterless boats like cakes in a bakery.

Hi,

I'm not a tender specialist nor designer, but that one from Meyer...

It looks special, elegant, solid, and very well thought out. You can "feel" the quality.

And as a diver, I suspect it has some design benefits for making short diving tours.

regards,

Andrei
