New lightweight tender delivered to superyacht Nilaya
by Malcolm MacLean
Xtenders, manufacturer of the lightest high-end superyacht tenders in the market, was challenged by the Captain of the 34.13m Baltic sailing yacht Nilaya to build a 6.3 metre tender under 650kg, within the limits of the yacht’s lifting equipment capacity. The challenge was agreed in a performance contract where Xtenders was to be penalized for every kg exceeding the 650kg, without compromising on quality and horsepower.
The 6.3M Xtender was delivered with a custom foldable console, a carbon fibre wake-board pole, two suspendable seats, an outboard 115hp Yamaha engine, all within the required limits with a full operational weight of 623kg.
“The tender is state-of-the and driving it is truly phenomenal. People at Xtenders pay attention to every possible detail. They see a challenge in everything where others say it is not possible. The service of Xtenders is excellent, from start to finish.” said Nilaya's Captain.
