For CWay Yachts, the decision to custom build a tender was borne out of the need for an attractive, functional day boat that offers protection from the weather, whilst still permitting the enjoyment of water-sports. IYD was commissioned to bring the project to fruition. There’s any number of limousine-style tenders out there: but they are a single-use vessel. The objective here was to create a practical boat that would serve as a comfortable tender, but also be suitable for a range of other activities. The result is an edgy-looking 8 metre boat with seating for up to eight guests and two crew. IYD employed a combination of aluminum for the hull and structure, with composites for much of the interior, to produce a durable vessel, that is also light enough to be lifted onto the aft deck of the mother ship.
