Tender of the Year – Limousine

Solas

Length: 11m

Builder: Knierim Yachtbau

Naval architect: Beiderbeck Designs

Exterior stylist: Beiderbeck Designs

Interior design: Beiderbeck Designs

The top tender of the year in the limousine category stood out immediately in a field of very strong candidates with numerous notable features such as good looks, good comfort and, importantly, the ability to fit snugly inside a yacht garage witha total height of just 2.4m. However, this 11m tender, part of a pair custom-built at the Knierim Yachtbau yard in Kiel for a Lürssen, offers something new over all the other candidates. It can serve both as the guest tender with comfortable accommodation in a sheltered, air-conditioned interior that will deliver 15 dry guests to shore at speeds up to 30 knots, thanks to two Volvo Penta D3 220 engines. At this speed, even water-skiing is an option too. And the Solas tender can also hold up to 38 people when acting as a rescue boat in an emergency. Along with uncommon features such as a bar with a refrigerator and a comfortable wet room, its design and construction comply with stringent SOLAS rules. It is fire resistant and can be dropped to launch, plus it is certified to withstand the most rigorous sea conditions. In essence, it serves two functions, solving an issue that has plagued the industry for years: the need to carry several auxiliary boats.
