Hoek Design (known for classically designed yachts) presents renderings of a 23m tender/chase boat for a sailing yacht also designed by Hoek.
The yacht respectively chase boat/tender is currently under construction at Claasen Shipyards. This project marks the 27th collaboration between these companies. According to the designer, the yacht serves to transport guests to the mothership with maximum comfort. Furthermore, it will be a diving platform, has some extra storage spaces and extra crew. Sounds like a very special looking support ship.
The yacht has a top speed of 25 knots, powered by two SCANIA engines with 925 hp. The operating range is 750 nautical miles, the cruising speed is 15 knots.
