2nd Edition of Elite Watercraft at Monaco Show Delights
The second edition of the Tenders and Toys area is sure to be an overwhelming success at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018. Fast chase-boats, latest sports tenders, full carbon e-bikes, inflatables and even a remotely operated underwater vessel will be among the top water accessories to be unveiled at the dedicated areas. Launched in 2017, the Tenders & Toys lineup was extended along Quai Antoine Ier and will complete the floating exhibition of tenders at Quai Jarlan. Here we take a look at five of the 40 best tenders present at the show: Cockwells Built as a tender to an 88m superyacht, this 9.5m limousine demonstrates Cockwells’ unlimited flexibility when it comes to delivering custom-builds. With a spacious saloon for up to 12 guests, her warm wood interior creates an environment that radiates luxury and serenity at speeds up to 40 knots. Powered by a single Yanmar engine, she is also equipped with a marine stereo, heating, air conditioning and a state-of-the-art EmpirBus system with custom touchscreen, enabling all onboard electrical systems to be pre-set and easily controlled. Pascoe The new 8.00m Open Limousine is offered as a premium leader in the market. Developed on a platform which can accept many layout configurations, the 8-8.5m Open Limousines offer different seating layouts, a variety of bimini shading options and elegant details and finishes which can transform this highly practical tender into a true owner’s launch. The compact and sleek Open Limousine is the perfect answer for restricted garages. Scorpion Ribs The newest version of Scorpin Ribs’ impressive range of Rigid Inflatable Boats will be debuted at Monaco in the form of the Silurian 1080I. It was over 20 years ago that Scorpion created a completely new hull design to realize the full potential of the Rigid Inflatable Boat. Today Scorpion has refined the RIB into the perfect blend of form and function; their elegant looks and luxurious comfort belie their rugged, all-weather capabilities and safety. Silurian’s spaciousness and her luxury when towed behind a Superyacht make her the ultimate tender or chase boat. It is a stylish complement that positively enhances the onboard experience of your guests. It is equally accomplished at transporting guests in luxurious comfort to port or far-flung bays, islands or restaurants. The Silurian evolves stepped hull technology, with outstanding performance benefits with safe and predictable handling. Owners can choose outboard or inboard engines, as well from an extensive list of customization options. The twin-engined Silurian, Black Legend is a perfect example of the range and scope of our customization and the dramatic effects we can produce. Wajer Yachts Netherlands-based Wajer Yachts has unveiled its latest motor yacht model, the Wajer 55 S Eighteen months after the release of the flagship Wajer 55, this sportier version is based upon a center console concept. The new model has the same hull as the Wajer 55, but with a completely different deck layout. This gives the boat an even more dynamic look and room for all kinds of watersport toys. This combination of sportiness, luxury and comfort is why Wajer is calling the new model a Sports Utility The Wajer 55 S: Lighter, faster and more versatile than its renowned 55 siblings. E-Tender The E-TENDER 460 is powered by a stern-drive electric engine developed by Huracan® that makes the propulsion extraordinarily silent and zero emissions. Thanks to this new propulsion system, this luxury tender does not create problems with stowage in mega yachts, requires very little maintenance and has access to protected marine areas where it is prohibited to navigate with a traditional thermal engine. The hull has been specially developed for this model and this type of propulsion to ensure high performance, low energy absorption and high maneuverability even in confined spaces.
