Dutch yacht design company Omega Architects has been commissioned with the design of the 9.5-meter limousine tender for a 73-meter superyacht currently under construction in Ancona, Italy. The vessel will be built by fellow Netherlands-based company Hutting Yachts and will mainly be used to transport guests to the larger ship.
This stylish little boat has a forward leaning superstructure reminiscent of its mothership’s design, while its helm station is aft of the superstructure under a telescopic roof. There’s also a small foredeck which provides access to a front mounted passerelle which in turn slides out from under the bow, providing passengers with easy and comfortable access on and off the ship.
Hidden in the bow is a self-launching stainless steel anchor and chain, while electric bow thrusters can be used together with a fully fly-by-wire joystick control for very accurate maneuvering and stability.
The limo tender is expected to be launched in October 2014.
