From helping guests perfect their wakeboarding skills to pulse-raising rides across the waves, a tender is the ultimate superyacht sidekick.
Meet some of the finest new models to hit the water and designs fresh from the drawing board:
Nautor’s Swan Shadow
Builder: Nautor’s Swan
Length: 13.23 metres
Top speed: 55 knots
Diverting from its usual production of performance sailing yachts, Nautor’s Swan has ventured into the field of powerful motor boats with the launch of its Swan Shadow. Designed in collaboration with Jarkko Jämsén, the chase boat can reach a top speed of 55 knots under the power of its three 225 to 250hp outboard engines. The customisable tender also features a movable aft platform for easier access to the water or dock, a walkaround deck and a convertible cabin for comfort at sea in any weather.
