Thanks! Share it with your friends!



Built in 2002

This 10m Vehicle Carrier epitomizes the Vikal multi-purpose tender. While taking up only one tender bay on board the yacht, it serves multiple roles and thus potentially saves the yacht carrying other tenders to meet a range of needs. This tender is capable of (but not limited to) collecting or delivering a 2 tonne 4WD in a beach environment or delivering a pallet of machinery to the yacht. The 400kg articulated davit (deck crane) can collect a disabled jet ski or other piece of equipment, for service work on the yacht. The large cargo deck (with multiple tie down points) can accommodate copious volumes of equipment for a dive mission, a beach barbecue or a beach concert.
