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.
This multi purpose tender is perfectly equipped to ferry guests, suitcases or both to the yacht. It does this in deep or shallow water, with a top speed of 37 knots, via ZF 220 gearboxes coupled to twin HJ 292 Waterjets.
With it's multi folding hydraulically operated bow door, retractable roof, bow and transom winches and myriad of other features, this tender is by any measure a remarkable piece of equipment.
