So ? May I have a response from YN, if you dont' mind ?
(and if my post is not deleted)
258ft Princess Mariana
Oh Sorry Ancora, I did not realise that you meant me to reply, well the above answer is correct.
Thank you YN , and Orion too for his participation and pic.
Actually I have never seen such a large t/t.
Off the top of my head, I believe "Moon Goddess" should be the biggest main tender/to out there so far. I think some other big ones were "Little Saf" (if that is the correct name), once was a tender/to "Lady Moura", I think she was a Mangusta.
Another big one resides on the deck of "Le Grand Bleu" called "Sirius A".
Here is the 92-foot "Little Saf" at the time...

I would say that Yacht Tenders in the traditional notion of the word should be smaller vessels that are lifted on or floated into the mother ship and carried at sea to new locations.
The recent upsurge in larger than normal "tenders" or what is often called Shadow Boats has changed all that to a certain degree.
Some of them are there themselves to carry large tenders for use by the Mother Ship and some are just used as is.
The trio that I think is the most impressive is: Golden Odyssey at 80.50m with it's supporters in the shape of Golden Shadow at 66.75m and Golden Osprey at 27.45m.
"Golden Osprey" is the sportfish styled tender right?
Yes, that is correct.
That's exactly what I said to myself. Where's the limit between a tender and a "support" yacht....in or out the mother ship.
About Lady Moura, I have been watching her for one year (maybe more) in Monaco (when docked) without heli.
So what are you trying to say about her airborne tender/to?
To be brief, in seven words : what happened to Lady Moura's heli...
Heli is not airborne.It is seaborne.Pilot, copilot and passengers are airborne.
When did that happen as the bird it normally carries still shows as a valid rego with no crash or accident data available.
Is it true that the main tender to the McMullen & Wing/Aquos yacht's "Big Fish" will be called "Triple Ripple"?
Okay, I just can confirm this...found this pic on the Aquos website...
The main tender to "Al Mirqab" is "Al Mirqab III"? Apparently Al Mirqab III is the fourth Mangusta 165.
Anyone have any photos of this Mangusta?
I have only seen one, but I am unsure if the link can be posted here. It was not a great photo, so Probably not a great loss.
I will pm you the link, if you wish. You can determine if it is ok to post.
I think so, just playing it safe.
Here is a link of the biggest yacht tender in the world,it's a tender of the 126 metre giant from they Lürssen.
MODERATORS NOTE TO JUSTUS; THE PICTURE IS DELETED DUE TO COPYRIGHTS, AGAIN!
