25m Eco Tender takes shape at Perini Navi

Perini Navi has released the first in-build photos of its recently announced Eco Tender, which show the hull and superstructure to already be complete. 

The 25-metre (82-foot) all-aluminium motor yacht has been commissioned by an eco-conscious client who already owns a 50m Perini Navi sailing yacht, to be used as a supplementary tender and vessel. 

Speaking last year, Luca Boldrini, sales director of motor yachts at Perini Navi, said, “The project grew out of discussions for a bigger sailing boat. What they really wanted was more flexible cabin space to accommodate single guests or children. As they prefer to anchor offshore, they also wanted to explore closer inshore in something more substantial than a conventional RIB.” 

As a result, there is accommodation on board for up to six guests across three staterooms, made up of a full-beam VIP suite, a double cabin and further cabin with bunk beds. She can also accommodate a crew of up to two to support operations on board. 

In terms of design, the Eco Tender features recognisable Perini Navi styling, thanks to Perini’s head of design, Franco Romani.

She features classic exteriors and contemporary interiors, including a sunken foredeck seating area to allow the owner to pursue his hobbies of bird watching and nature photography. As such, the super tender is equipped with a hybrid diesel-electric drivetrain, made up of twin 1,627 MAN engines and Hamilton waterjets with zero-emission mode for exploring marine parks and other environmentally sensitive areas.

Boldrini described this system, which provides a top speed of 30 knots, to be a “first”, coming from the owner who has a “huge respect for the environment”. 

The Eco Tender features high bulwarks so that guests can straight onto the mothership.

Other projects underway at the yard include the 42m E-volution, which, announced at the same time as the Eco Tender is reported to be at an advanced engineering stage.
