    F45 Vantage Gets A Custom Feadship Tender!​


    Feadship has designed a fully customized tender to complement its brand-new series of semi-production motor yachts, the F45 Vantage. Some seven meters in length, the stern-drive catamaran tender has been specially designed by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects for parking onboard the F45. Serving as an exclusive water limousine for up to ten passengers, the tender will be built in the Netherlands under the supervision of one of the two Feadship yards, Royal van Lent.

    The custom tender concept was a response to the design of a giant stern hatch/swimming platform for the F45 that extends right up to the cap rail. This smart water recreation solution presented a new challenge - no crane would be able to haul a tender over such a deep hatch for storage in the lazarette. The answer was to design a new tender that could be pulled in via a winch, a process that is facilitated by enabling the platform to pivot over 90-degrees and descend into the water.

    After the initial engineering and technical design concept for the tender was developed by De Voogt Naval architects, Sinot Design Associates (a Dutch company that was also responsible for the F45’s four interior styling options) added some restyling touches. The result is a unique new design with some innovative features.

    More Than Custom... Multi-Functional Too!​


    Once the decision had been taken to create an entirely new tender blueprint, the designers opted to raise the bar in terms of multi-functionality. In addition to being a luxury mode of transport to and from the mother ship, the tender has a hydraulic landing platform for alighting guests on a beach. This platform can also be used for easy entry into the water for swimming and diving. A shower on the tender foredeck ensures people can freshen up before returning to the yacht.

    The F45 tender is a synergy of a speedboat and a limousine. A propeller engine coupled to a duo-prop stern drive offers powerful acceleration and a top speed of around 33 knots, even when the full complement of guests is onboard. This will ensure ample power for water skiing and the towing of other recreational toys.

    The catamaran shape of the tender combines a large deck surface with excellent stability in a low profile package. The hull is vacuum bagged sandwich construction of PVC core and vinyl ester, with a foam fender collar on the sides and front. A Bimini top and a spray hood lead the optional extras package.

    Specifications for the tender:

    LOA: 7.00 m
    Beam max: 2.50 m
    Weight: approx. 1,500 kg
    Maximum sailing speed: approx. 33 knots
    Persons: ten and driver
