MasterCraft Offer New Line of Bespoke Superyacht Tenders


MasterCraft Boats UK is to introduce a bespoke superyacht watersports tender with inboard diesel engine packages at the Monaco Yacht Show.

It is the first time the Company has exhibited at Monaco and it represents a significant commitment to the bespoke tenders market.

A new for 2015 X23 Saltwater Series with the traditional petrol engine will be on display. This is just one of four Saltwater Series boats that is offered with the custom diesel engine package.

The luxury performance sports boats range from 6.10 metres to 7.75 metres and are now available with an exclusive conversion to a Yanmar inboard diesel engine.

The package also includes bespoke lifting solutions with options tailored to meet the widest possible range of requirements.

Yanmar was chosen as the engine partner for the project because the EPA Tier 3-compliant 8LV engine is exceptionally quiet, smooth and compact. It has a wide power band (320-370) with adjustable idle speeds as low as 550 rpm for trolling in marinas and tops out at 3,800 rpm. With a 992 pound dry weight, it offers an excellent power-to-weight ratio.

Recognising that every case is different and working closely with a specialist lifting partner, the builders carefully match the needs and technical requirements of the ship, either for single point or multi point lifting options.

Bespoke mounted lifting points, spreader bars and keel line lifts are among the solutions offered to ensure that the best option is found in line with a ship’s crane positions and storage location on board.
