Shipyards have become quite consumed with engineering new ways of opening up the roofs on seafaring vessels. A few years' time has given us the vanishing enclosure of the Reversys and the folding top on the Oronero.

YXT ONE is designed to act as a tender for yachts in the 30 m and 70 m (100 to 230 ft) cla...

The phrase “yacht tender” usually conjures up images of a small, somewhat unassuming launch boat. What generally isn’t expected is something 24 m (78 ft) long that looks like an upmarket tug boat and has never swung from a davit in its life. Designed by Diana Yacht Design and built by LYNX Yachts in Zaandam, the Netherlands, Yacht-X-Tender (YXT ONE) is the first in a new line of bespoke pocket support yachts designed for situations where the main craft isn’t quite big enough to hold all the toys.  Read More

Spare a thought for the super rich. Not only do they have to worry about whether their luxury yacht is up to snuff, but they also have to make sure their tender can ferry guests to it in style, their day boat is well equipped for a day away, and their shadow boat has enough room for all the watertoys. French company EAMS believes it has the answer with its Tender Toy concept that it says is "3 tenders in 1."  Read More

Mercedes Benz is famous for its range of cars, trucks buses and vans, but the company has ambitions beyond the land.
