Novurania, the maker of luxury tenders for superyachts for the past 40 years, has completely redesigned their 6 metre and 7 metre launch models to be fully multi functional. The addition of a fully opening bow ramp to a high sided proven GRP hull offers owners and yacht crews a seaworthy, dry riding tender that can carry passengers and picnic gear to favourite beaches for easy landing and embark/disembarkation. The sleek hard wearing Protex foam collar provides excellent fendering protection as well as adding buoyancy and stability. The diesel engine power package ensures reliability and compatibility with the yachts fuel system and the massive aft engine hatches allow easy engine and drive maintenance.
The helm position to starboard is all the driver and crew need to operate the tender whilst taking up little valuable space from the passenger area. Entry into the tender is located on the port side offering passengers a convenient and safe step way with removable handrails.
The main passenger seating area is comfortable and intimate but allows guests to easily kit up with diving or snorkelling gear and make use of the bow ramp into the water. Alternatively, when accessing a beach, the bow ramp is especially appreciated by older guests and owners to simply “walk on walk off”. The electro hydraulic ramp is operated from the helm position but there is also a manual back up system provided. Water tightness in the bow ramp area is maximised due to the unique sealing design that is incorporated into this brand new reincarnation.
“I have been waiting to build this boat for many years” notes Novurania President Robert Collada. “We now have the quality components proven and in place to make a first class product”
