5.5 Superyacht Tender
Naiad have produced a number of Superyacht Tenders to date. All custom designed diesel jets, varying in length from six metres to 10.5 metres, some with amazing extras such as paragliding gear, high capacity ferrying and doubling up as rescue craft.
Even as a Superyacht Tender Naiad's principles as a safe and hard working RHIB are maintained. This provides the sort of tender that the more adventurous Superyacht owner requires, ready to explore the remote parts of the world.
When the SY Juliet needed a replacement tender they came to Naiad for these reasons. They already had existing tenders so the new Naiad needed to fit within the space available. The use of a diesel jet was investigated but ruled out due to weight restrictions, so the outboard was the way forward. The space allowed for a 5.5m boat which is not a standard size for Naiad, but as our customers know, Naiad is very capable with special requests.
The result was a striking white 5.5m Centre Console (a 200mm extension on the 5.3) finished to yacht standard with flexiteek decking. Powered by a single 74.6Kw (100hp) Yamaha four-stroke outboard it reaches 35 knots at full speed and can carry one crew and six passengers.
There is plenty of storage under the back seat and in the console. It also has a 120 litre underfloor tank which keeps the deck clean and uncluttered. The console is centrally located to allow ease of movement around the boat and the main seat is at the rear for maximum comfort.
Fitted with a GPS Plotter, Sounder and VHF radio all housed in the console, this boat is well equipped. Coupled with a 21 deg dead-rise, a fine entry and a hull optimised for smooth handling in choppy conditions, this Naiad Superyacht Tender is ready for adventure.
