HUH??

There's a 60 foot sportfish on Chesapeake Bay with a 21' Avon powered by a 300XS on a jackplate. When we asked the owner how fast it went, his reply was that "it runs out of driver at 85 mph"... I'll try to find out some details for you.

Hey E.C.,

Give Bob Leach at Eliminator a call. I am pretty sure he built a 33' Daytona with psycho power as a tender for a mega-yacht. (Guess the owner was in a hurry to get to and from the shore.) The tender was housed/transported in a 150-foot cargo shop ship that followed the yacht and carried all the owner's toys.

Nice work if you can get it.

A 39 ME is a sizable tender even for a megayacht. It was painted to match the yacht and even the OB's were painted navy blue!

Was that the one Powerboat tested with Teague 900s?

There are two companies that build those companion ships; Stan Antrim's YES(Yacht Escort Ships) and Shadow Boats(Tom Gonzales).

Saw Forbes Yacht in Ft. Lauderdale in 2005 Highlander with a Donzi & Cigarette with matching paint schemes for tenders.

Call Grant or Peter P

www.grantscustomrigging.com

They have actually built/rigged at least two wally tenders.

Deep Impact has made some very nice "off the shelf tenders" for clients down here as well.

The assignment letter read "The Top 10 Most Outrageous Tenders," so I don't think anything off the shelf will work, but I'll definitely get in touch with Grant or Peter.

Thanks everyone, this is awesome.

I do not doubt it ,they need to buy the captain a tape measure.
