Patterson Boat Works and Van Geest Design have together developed the All carbon Lucent 44 tender, specifically for the super yacht market. With a sleek hull and contemporary lifestyle, this tender seems perfect for exploring, as well as being a great platform for water sports.
The key design feature is transparency, allowing guests to be one with the surrounding elements. Modern lines, a flush foredeck and raised cockpit bulwarks are combined with a wraparound glass transom which folds down to create a glass bathing platform.
Aft of the steering station is a large cockpit. It features an integrated bar/BBQ and an ingenious table system, that can transform the cockpit in an alfresco aperitif hotspot.
Unseen, but no less important are the silent 150 hp electric engines, that push the Lucent 44 to a cruising speed of 20 knots. Sub-miniature diesel range extenders maintain the lithium (LI-S) batteries between a 35% and 90% charge, offering a range of 200 plus nautical miles on 80 lt of fuel at 20 knots.
