British boatbuilder Cockwells has delivered four custom tenders to the newly launched 112-metre Renaissance – the largest yacht to be built in Spain.
The quartet of tenders include a 13-metre limousine tender, a 13-metre open tender, a 10-metre beach lander and an Air-Sport 7.0.
The limousine tender is styled to match the mothership with an interior inspired by private jet design. It includes three reclining seats aft, a bench seat and a dinette area, with full standing headroom, air-conditioning and a forward luggage room. On the aft deck, out in the open, are seven additional seats including two aft-facing recliners. Power comes from twin Yanmar 8LV engines while Seakeeper stabilisers keep it steady.
The open tender, also fitted with the same propulsion package as the limousine, features a height-adjustable hardtop with a second windscreen in the main cockpit for protection from wind and spray. Amenities include a forward luggage room and two aft-facing recliners.
The beach lander is propelled by waterjets that give this particular model a shallow draught for pulling up and onto secluded beaches. A two-part electronically-folding bow ramp allows crew to offload provisions or guests to step ashore with ease. Other features include an aft deck for sunbathing and equipment/luggage transfer, a pole for wakeboarding, a deck shower and a folding hardtop.
Lastly is Cockwells’ semi-production Air-Sport 7.0 RIB, with inflatable tubes to fender off the mothership, doubles as both an open sports tender and functional crew launch. A top speed of 36 knots means she can get from A to B with pace, paired with a forward spray hood that pulls up from beneath the cockpit edge in case of inclement weather. Boarding points can be raised and lowered for embarking and disembarking guests, while quick-change tubes slide off for easy maintenance.
“With more than a quarter of a century of building exceptional superyacht tenders for discerning clients from across the globe, Cockwells is no stranger to opulence, craftsmanship and style, but to have been commissioned to custom-build this quartet of tenders for one of the largest superyachts in the world is something of a pinnacle,” said founder and managing director Dave Cockwell.
He continued: “As a result, we have been commissioned to create a further quartet of tenders by a new client, which serves to consolidate our position as one of the most well-respected and innovative builders of bespoke craft in the industry, building to precise specifications and the highest of standards.”
Renaissance is the world's most expensive superyacht currently available for charter. She is ice-classed to 1D specifications and also features a commercially certified helicopter landing pad.
