Xtender collaborated with Vripack and Structeam to engineer the vessel, made completely from pre-preg carbon fibre and weighing 3.5 tons. These attributes allow the vessel to run with a single engine and bow thruster set-up, and reach a maximum speed of 39 knots.
According to Xtender, a key feature of the tender is its “two separately actuated roofs that define the tender’s functionality.” This was key to lowering the storage height of the tender to 1.55m, allowing the limousine to be stored in the Feadship superyacht’s garage – with a door 1.65m in height – a feat that “no previously existing limousine could achieve.”
One-button controls allow the coachroof and the Bimini to rise, creating a fully functional limousine with two separate decks. A concealed pantograph mechanism allows the bimini to be raised above the aft deck, to create two open decks. Both roofs can then be lowered down into the hull to allow for storage in the superyacht’s garage.
Two areas mainly define the vessel’s layout: the front limousine interior and the open aft deck with an adjustable seating arrangement. The main interior is placed towards the bow where a 3m long U-shaped bench can sit up to 12 guests.
The limousine also features a panoramic roof, continuous LED lighting, climate control, and a multimedia system. The aft deck, with a folding transom and two removable benches, is designed to become a multifunctional platform for leisure and water sport activities.
