Alte Volare – 12M Hydrofoil Tender

Designer: Cockwells


Alte Volare is the exciting result of an extensive technical study. This 12m limousine tender will utilise a fully electric drivetrain and retractable foiling technology to provide a quiet and comfortable ride, using 80% less energy than a non-foiling hull at a fast-cruising speed. Typically remaining close to the mothership, an electric tender can be regularly and conveniently charged on board.
The unique design parameters presented by the electric hydrofoil platform have led to a limousine tender like no other, with striking styling and an ingenious layout that befits such a cutting-edge craft. Folding midship boarding steps lead you into the centre cockpit area. Forward is a comfortable bow seating area for five guests, with a removable infill cushion providing a large sun pad. Aft of the centre cockpit is the modern, airy saloon with inward-facing seating for up to eight guests. Large wrap-over side glass creates a light and open feel, and a full aft picture window with twin reclining loungers provide an immersive view from the rear of the boat.
At Cockwells, we push the boundaries of the possible when it comes to fusing advanced engineering with intelligent design, and Alte Volare elevates this ethos to a higher plane.
