High-end super yacht tenders, full-custom realized
X-Craft has launched their first custom tender of their new luxury ELITE line. This puts X-Craft into the top segment of the super custom tender category. Owner comfort and exquisite finishing are the hallmarks of these X-Craft tenders which make them an obvious choice for Superyachts.
A top custom design
The first tender of the ELITE line was created for an 76m Superyacht. X-Craft customized their proven 8mtr hull to fit the Yacht’s garage as well as to fulfill all the Owners requirements. The tender accommodates 11 persons and is oriented towards watersports activities. It is fitted with a stainless steel bow post and watersports towing post aft, a removable carbon fiber wakeboard post, a recessed transom boarding ladder with stainless steel deck handles and boarding assist poles in key places around the boat to assist passenger entry and exit.
Powered by a 300 hp Steyr Diesel engine driving a Hamilton water jet, this X-Craft Elite package exceeds the Owners high level of requirements for this tender.
Stylish and ingenious
One glance at the beautiful dashboard with its ergonomic layout tells a lot about the care and attention that went into this tender. From the mobile telephone docking station to the placement of the GPS plotter, UHF and VHF radios, LED lighting and stereo system, all have been carefully considered, chosen and fitted for optimum performance. The satellite transponder and Sea Trac tender tracking system were also selected as part of the electrical package as were discreetly placed LED courtesy lights and bow mounted Xenon docking lights.
On the deck, one’s eye catches on the ingenious bow and stern polished stainless steel towing posts. The aft post has a waterski rope cleat fitted as well as the stern light. The bow post is shaped as a Samson post also supporting a LED deck light. Added touches such as the stylized deck cleats and lifting points add to the air of clean sophistication of this boat.
A true watersports boat needs a great sound system. A full 1600 watt stereo sound is provided by cleverly placed marine speakers and sub woofers behind the stainless steel ventilator grilles in the console and the engine cover. This system fills the whole boat with high quality sound.
This ELITE tender proven high speed hull design largely surpasses the minimum speed requirement of 25 knots with 8 people aboard and its handling in most sea states is superb. It is a highly maneuverable sports tender that will admirably fulfill its role as the Yacht’s watersports craft.
X-Craft is confident in its abilities to produce first class custom tenders and anticipates more interest in its ELITE range of superyacht tender RIB’s as a result of the successful hand over of its first model.
