    Mega Yacht Tender

    Thanks for all replys and letters about my questions about the perfect megayacht tender!
    There are no universal boat that can do all different neads for such kind of boat.
    It have to be safe,sports,practical,light,carrier,manouverable.....

    but as pure "Deck Candy" the classic mahogany runabout is my personal favorite;)

    Like this V10 povered 23ft Extravaganza :cool:

    Mirabella V; nice tender. Does it have jet drives? Can you post pics of the yacht or is it already here?

    Didn't think that this forum liked real ...sorry I mean.. sail boats. Just kidding, I like motor boats too. Here are a few of my favorites:

    Just out for a lazy sail...sails well set, big MPS working well.

    LOL Some of us (myself among others) actually prefer sail boats. :) Sure I love motor-yachts, but there's just something right about a mast & sail.

    Yes I like that sleek snugged-down look of the superstructure. Boat has beautiful lines.

    Caution: National Pride follows....

    Most runabout (ie. not big enough to be called a yacht) sized craft built down here are practical, sturdy no nonsense type boats. But they can also be a bit plain and lacking in polish.


    Which makes me all the more pleased to be able to bring to you the finest looking motor boats, in their class, ever made in Australia (imo).

    It's a hard choice, but the Retro is my favorite.

    Since you asked for it, I see problems with the dashboard and transom. But the rest of the design is absolutely killer! <and vee still need a thumbsup smilie here>

    Hi Kelly.

    If your refering to the shape of the dash, I can see how it could be a matter of taste.
    What problems do you see with the transom?
    Perhaps the step?

    Ben,

    Pegiva had this boat on display at the Miami Show. I met with a rep from the company. One of the more notable features was the convertible top that lowered into a recessed boot area, resulting in a very clean top-down config. The workmanship and detail was excellent, but it was a pricey boat.

    ******************************************

    Continuing with the retro theme...

    I received an image and info from Kurt Strand on this new 27' Speedster, "Little Miss Sweden". Powered by a 625hp V10 from Ilmor, it is expected to approach 100 knots using a race drive, carbon hull and optional wood sides to truly recapture the era. It will be a limited production boat (around 10 units will be built). A launch date was not given. More images can be found at Vizualtech, or e-mail Bo Zolland at: mail (at) viztech (dot) se

    argh!, don't make me choose!!!

    Right you are. When I first saw a referance to Ilmor V10 engines I presumed that it was a Viper engine marine prepared by a company named Ilmor. A quick Google has proven otherwise.

    I thought F1 engines had a fair bit more than 625hp, is this a result of marine preperation?
