Sir Roger Moore launches Super Yacht Tender

J Craft boats launches their Torpedo at the Monaco Yacht Show

Sir Roger Moore was the guest of honour at a champagne reception to launch the new boat from the Swedish boat design and manufacturing company J Craft Boats.

The new 12 .6 metre Torpedo is a luxury yacht tender that has a sprint speed of 44 knots and is powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 500 engines and transmission system which allows manoeuvring through 360 degrees using a joystick.

More than just a very expensive motor yacht, it is a statement of personality and lifestyle. It is ideal for the most discerning and demanding clientele.

The superyacht tender exudes elegance and a touch of extravagance featuring silver cutlery designed by Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and a Nardi hand-carved steering wheel also seen on another design classic, the Ferrari 250 GTO. Each individual detail comes together to form an unsurpassed whole, creating a boating experience unlike any other.

Sir Roger Moore said, “I can certainly see James Bond arriving in a boat like this at an exclusive party somewhere on the Riviera and I think any of my seven Bond Girls would have loved it too!”

J Craft is a relatively new company, founded in 1998 by Björn Jansson. The first boat manufactured by was the Cabrio Cruiser, which left the shipyard in 2000 and was delivered to the King of Sweden, who still uses it today.

In the past nine years, only seven of the exclusive Cabrio Cruisers have been constructed for discerning customers.
