Most yacht owners learn quickly, they will need a quality tender to take them from anchor to shore. But, this can’t just be any little boat. This watercraft has to meet the yacht’s size requirements, and honestly, it has to look good at the same time. Tenders are an extension of an owner’s yacht. Not just with style, but with performance as well. Since we have been serving yacht and megayacht clients for some time now, we can certainly help a yacht owner learn more about choosing the right tender for them.
In this article, we will explore some of the elements a yacht owner will want to consider when purchasing a tender and offer some suggestions on how to decide on the right option. Let’s get right to it.
Size and Store
One of the first things BRIG sales support will inquire about is; what size vessel a yacht owner has room for, and how will that watercraft be stored on the boat. If stored within the yacht, dimensions are crucial to ensure the rigid inflatable boat fits well without creating a stressful docking situation aboard. If the RIB will be stored on deck, for instance using a davit system, the measurements might have a little more flexibility but are equally essential to know, especially to accommodate maximum weight, crane capacity and swim platform, if applicable.
Alternatively, yacht owners can opt to have yacht tenders towed, which can dramatically improve the overall guest experience compared to having an inflatable boat on the sun deck. Additionally, it allows guests to anchor in one place and see the area by tender in some pretty choppy water without moving the big boat.
If you are considering a tow-behind tender, the BRIG Eagle 10 is the ultimate choice. Nearly 33-feet long, this model can be towed behind larger yachts without the fear of damage that other vessels may be susceptible to. To learn more, visit our website at https://brigusa.com/eagle10/.
