C.
Way Pty Ltd has tapped Tasmania-
based designer Will Allison and his
design firm, Imaginocean Yacht Design, to
design both a 47 meter motoryacht and its
8 meter tender.
The decision to custom build a tender was
born out of the need for an attractive, func-
tional day boat that offers protection from
the weather, whilst still permitting the enjoy-
ment of water sports. Will Allison says,
“There’s any number of limousine-style ten-
ders out there: but they are a single use ves-
sel. The objective here was to create a prac-
tical boat that would serve as a comfortable
tender, but also be suitable for a range of
other activities.” The result is an edgy-looking 8 meter boat
with seating for up to eight guests and crew. IYD employed a
combination of aluminum for the hull and structure, with
composites for much of the interior, to produce a durable
vessel that is also light enough to be lifted onto the aft d
of the mother ship. Hull number one is currently under co
struction in Hobart and is due to be launched by the mid
of 2012.
