Dibley Marine are working alongside Auckland based company, Mitchells Marine on the design of a 7-metre Super Yacht Tender with a few special features that were essential to the client we have. The external beam was fixed due to deck space but the internal beam needed to be as wide as possible for internal seating and volume. A manual bow door system also had to be implemented to allow passengers and equipment, such as Scooters, to be offloaded on beaches effortlessly.
The pontoon system is being worked on in-house through Mitchells Marine’s R&D division and uses a foam and rubber matrix that can be shaped in any way that the design dictates. The deep-v hull form with a Hamilton Jet system will handle most sea states with ease, and at speed.
