Conventional yacht tenders are open sea going pleasure boats without a roof – that’s the main feature of yacht tenders. However, Alex Pirard Yacht Design claims to have made the world’s first yacht tender featuring a convertible hard-top to provide pleasure sailing in all kinds of weather conditions
The world’s first limousine yacht tender with a convertible hard-top roof, Oronero blends class with usability. The yacht tender is 12 meters long, 3.8 meters wide, and can travel at a speed of up to 25 knots. Carbon fibre is used for constructing hull and hard-top of the tender, and which also forms an integral part of the interior, blending perfectly with the oak and leather. Carbon fibre keeps the weight of the tender to the minimum, thanks to the European Carbon Fibre specialists Carbon Dream.
Ononero features two folding platforms, one on each side, which allows passengers to board and disembark the yacht tender without the use of stairs. Two 280 HP diesel hybrid engines, along with 3kw generators supported by rooftop solar panels provide power to the yacht tender. Engines can provide cruising speed of 22 knots up to eight hours, whereas electric energy can power the tender up to 2 hours at a speed of 7 knots.
The main deck of the yacht tender is the cockpit, which can be converted into a Solarium with TV and Dinette. It also features convertible bed, kitchen, bathroom, toilet and shower, along with a 7,000 BTU air conditioner. The price of the yacht tender has not yet been revealed.
