Rupert Marine has delivered a 50-foot RIB as a tender to the 100 ft Wally sailing yacht Indio. The 50-foot tender Indi Jones is based on the Rupert 50 Wheel House and customized to the buyer’s specifications. Indi Jones is built according to yacht standards and colour coded to match the mother ship.
The tender is equipped with an advanced navigation system, full air conditioning, water maker, ice maker and all the amenities expected on a tender of this class. To assist S/Y Indio there is also an integrated fuel transfer station on the aft platform. The large workspace on aft deck can easily be converted to a big sun bed or nice lounge area with a retractable sunshade.
Twin MAN 800 Hp engines coupled to a pair of Rolls Royce/Kamewa water jets gives the tender a speed range of 45 to 49 knots. The new steering system ROCCS from Rolls Royce/Kamewa makes manoeuvring extremely easy and tight turns are comfortable with the trim tabs integrated in the steering.
Right now Indi Jones is on her way to Newport, Rhode Island to assist Indio in the Newport Bucket Regatta in August.
