Novurania, a market leader in luxury tenders for superyachts for the past 40 years and Florida designer/toolmaker Victor Chapman have agreed to build and distribute a line of bow-ramp yacht tenders and sports boats.
After some customer research into the bow-ramp tender market conducted through their extensive client network, Novurania went to renowned master mould maker Chapman who already had a bow-ramp concept on his drawing board.
Together, Novurania and Chapman have refined the design to launch a 3 boat range of bow-ramp tenders from 22’’ thru to 28’. Robert Collada, President of Novurania America Inc. comments, “the difficult part of a bow-ramp tender design is the seal between the opening ramp and the hull. Chapman is such an excellent toolmaker that the fit and finish of his design is perfect, especially for the rigours and high expectations of a busy superyacht. We are very fortunate to have been able to work together with him to market this range of boats that will be labelled the ‘Novurania Chapman’ series.”
The hull is a deep V design and not the usual catamaran style hull that has characterised bow-ramp tenders in the past. Performance and a dry ride in steep seas are enhanced with the effect of the inflatable tubes acting as shock absorbers and spray deflectors.
