About Compass Tenders Ltd
Compass Tenders Ltd
Compass Tenders have been building custom tenders since 2004, however, it was orders made for some of the most iconic superyachts in the industry between 2012 and 2019 which has seen our yard and design team reach international acclaim.
Particularly notable amongst our constructions are the 11m limousine and 11m sport tender for Feadship’s 99m Madame Gu, an 11.6m limousine tender for Lurssen’s 91m Lady Lara, and four tenders for Lurssen’s 123m Al Lusail – including two 11.2m limousines.
Recent deliveries include: two 10m custom tenders for a 110m Feadship, the yard’s largest build to date, plus a semi-custom Latitude Limousine and an Open Tender for OceAnco’s 90m Dreamboat.
In recognition of our innovative designs and exceptional build quality, Compass Tenders have been the winner of the ShowBoats Design Award on two occasions.
We often work with the same exterior stylist as for the mother ship, ensuring that design characteristics are echoed in the tender.
“We pride ourselves in our versatility and capability to fulfill an owner’s requirements. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with other designers or exterior stylists to create a bespoke tender, or in some cases a small fleet of them, to compliment the parent superyacht - resulting in some of our finest builds.” – Richard Faulkner, CEO Compass Tenders.
At Compass Tenders, we also offer a production platform, known as our Latitude range. This design offers four style and layout variations, all utilizing the same highly successful hull form, and interior seating configurations and finishes can be customized to suit owner requirements. This range has been extremely popular, with the decreased build time making them particularly desirable.
Compass Tenders also produce DRIBs and landing craft, with these more functional vessels benefitting from the same build quality and high finishing standards as an owner’s private limousine.
Situated on the River Hamble, the location of our facility sees us perfectly positioned for conducting sea trials in the Solent. The workshop space spans in excess of 25,000 square feet and we employ a highly-skilled workforce of over 70 people.
