Boat International has received news of the latest and biggest craft to emerge from the Tender Shipyard in Olonne-sur-Mer on France’s Atlantic coast.
The yard says the centre console craft is destined for the latest project from Sunrise Yachts, Irimari, currently in build in Turkey.
The 85 Open, part of the yard's Tresco Line, can take a crew of two and a maximum of 14 guests, who will sit in a U-shaped VIP area at the bow. Boarding is via the transom or bow.
With a carbon fibre steering wheel and carbon touches across the dashboard and elsewhere on the boat, she will look the part, while a sunpad aft and a shower to wash off the salt after a swim will keep guests in style for any trips off the mothership.
Other plush finishing touches include an electric windlass, 60mm seat cushions and mattresses in Sunbrella, 10 LED cockpit lights, waterskiing kit, two fishing rod holders and extensive teak decking.
The TS 85 Open has an overall length of 8.5 metres and a beam of 2.80m, with a height in the tender garage of 2 metres. She can be fitted with two lifting points and weighs 1.9 metric tons.
A Volvo D3 diesel at 220hp should give a top speed of around 35 knots with six people on board, the yard says, but the boat can take a jet drive and a more powerful engine if requested.
