Smuggler super yacht tenders A superyacht is the ultimate in maritime fashion – and its tender is an accessory, like a matching pair of shoes. So when Smuggler Marine builds a superyacht tender, it’s more than a means of transport. It’s the final, aesthetic flourish. Smuggler Marine has recently delivered a Smuggler 700 CC guest tender and a Strata 540 RIB as matching crew tender to a 56m yacht, while a Strata 630 graces the deck of a 44m yacht in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. The 700 CC has a similar hull to Smuggler Marine’s 700 model, but for use as a superyacht tender it has been converted into an open-style day boat with a centre console, a redesigned transom and side-entry door. It features removable stainless steel rear guards and a pullout swim ladder set beneath the large boarding platform. The side-entry door enables passengers to board Smuggler Marine finds success building tenders for superyachts. 46 Boating New Zealand April 2014 Photos by Smuggler Marine Super tenders Smuggler 540 ➤ loa 5.4m ➤ beam 2.4m ➤ height 1.2m ➤ displacement 1050kg ➤ fuel 110 litres ➤ hp 115-140 ➤ max persons 8 Smuggler 700cc ➤ loa 7.0m ➤ beam 2.57m ➤ displacement 1600 kg ➤ max persons 11 REVIEW_smuggler2_April14.indd 46 19/03/2014 3:47:18 p.m.
