Windy Scandinavia AB in Västervik, Sweden will start production on an 8 metre Superyacht tender based upon a design brief from EYOS Tenders. The boat, styled by Eidsgaard Design, will be the first major tender designed from day one to meet the needs of the superyacht market.
The tender, with a single diesel engine and outdrive leg, has been designed to maximize the yacht’s garage space by having a folding console to keep it below 1.5m in height whilst still maintaining a high freeboard to ensure a dry ride. Many optional extras are included in the base price, such as a forward spray hood, onboard shower, hose points in the forward locker for washing down the boat, underwater LED lights at the transom and lollipop boarding poles. An adaptable seating arrangement can carry up to 12 passengers in a neat bench format or carry 9 passengers in more comfort, all within a competitive price structure.
Both companies said that they will be working on a Jet model and further size options in the near future. John Apps, MD of EYOS Tenders said " We are very excited to be able to work with such a reputable firm as Windy on this Superyacht Tender project. We have been hugely impressed with their desire to build a top quality boat and together we can produce an extraordinary tender."
Trevor Fenlon, Head of Production at Windy’s Vastervik factory said "We worked with EYOS Tenders on two of our SR52 boats and were impressed by their knowledge and understanding of the yacht tender market. We are very happy to enter into this project with them"
Hull numbers 1-3 are already sold, but hull number 4 is now available.
