The tender’s exterior was inspired by old Venetian water taxis and combines vintage curves with sleek modern simplicity. Prolo’s design integrates the coach roof with the deck, cockpit and windscreen to create a wide interior for eight guests, with a maximum boarding capacity of eleven guests. The indoor guest area has been designed to act as an independent living area and includes a toilet and pantry. The forward crew couch and surrounding passages help separate the guests and crew, providing a luxurious and private guest experience.
The 10.5m limo tender will be powered by twin 286hp hybrid Diesel-Electric engines. She is expected to have a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed of 38 knots. With a 1,200 litre fuel tank, she will be built to handle long haul transfers. The design also takes environmental and financial sustainability into account, minimising maintenance operations and costs for the prospective owner.
Cockwells is also currently accepting enquiries for its recently revealed Henry Ward-designed 6.5 metre superyacht tender.
