Acronautic deliver luxury RIB tender

Acronautic deliver luxury RIB tender

Project management company Acronautic has delivered the 13m Dariel DT13, a rigid hull inflatable tender designed to serve as a luxurious day boat, as well as a means of getting from yacht to shore.

‘The goal was to create a floating beach club,’ says Stephen Crone, Acronautic manager. ‘It’s a vessel that can be used for short day trips and swimming – it has good water access – and secondly as a passenger transit. We’ve created a safe and comfortable ride for the passenger.’

Indeed, the boat’s owner can look forward to quite a ride. The Dariel DT13, built at the Dariel Yachts shipyard in Italy, is powered by twin 350hp Mercury Verado racing engines, which produce over 260kw and allow speeds in excess of 50 knots. The vessel is fitted with a 1,140 litre fuel tank providing a range of nearly 300 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 30 knots.

To ensure luxury onboard such a fast boat, the Dariel DT13 has been designed with a number of clever features: The U-shaped aft seating arrangement is protected from sea spray by the overhead sports top and the large inflatable tubes; leather-bound grab rails have been strategically positioned; and carefully flared wind deflectors are molded into the forward console to reduce airflow on to the passengers.

Final touches include a Nespresso coffee machine, built in dive compressor, refrigeration, advanced LED lighting, DVD surround sound system, shoe storage, sunscreen compartments and mobile phone dry storage.

The Dariel DT13 in the latest in a series of RIBs produced in collaboration with the Dariel Yachts shipyard in Italy, and was built for a repeat customer. The vessel was trialled in June on the lake Iseo in Italy by Acronautic and then delivered to the client after final detailing.
