Superyacht Tenders

Completed Projects

Type: Custom Wooden Tender

Designer: G.L. Watson & Co

We created this bespoke tender for the restored 50m motor yacht, Malahne which certainly turns heads with her varnished Brazilian mahogany hull and deck, and quilted maple veneer trimming.

To complement the look and feel of the mothership, her tender was designed in the spirit of the 1930s, with all her chrome fittings cast from period originals and her strip-planked yellow cedar hull.

This unique vessel strikes the perfect balance between classical elegance and modern technology. She can reach a speed of 35 knots thanks to her 258hp Steyr engine and will transport up to eight guests and crew in luxury and style.

Wherever she goes, the classic lines and gleaming varnish of this tender will turn heads at first glance. Those who get the chance for a closer look will be further impressed by the exemplary standard of workmanship and superb detailing throughout.” Classic Boat
