New V-Type Vader 650C tender delivered to superyacht Project 12
by Malcolm MacLean
The new 6.5m V-Type tender, the Vader 650C, has been delivered into the full-beam garage on board the 46.6m Akhir superyacht Project 12.
A full-deck moulding has been implanted on to a deep-V hull form, which was resin infused and produced from carbon fibre to give a safe and dry ride while seating is set well down into the craft.
Seating for nine persons gives ample room for guests and baggage, while access to the engine has been carefully thought through to give full access to all components. The V-Type 6.5m comes with diesel-jet power as standard, though stern-drive options are available.
The low-profile design of this tender is 1,200mm, and she weighs in dry at 1,500 kgs, which makes it ideal for the garage requirement.
Project 12 is currently for sale with Burgess and Cecil Wright & Partners.
