Unquestionably the finest choice for travelling to and from your charter yacht; offering a stunning fully-enclosed seating area, technology-rich features, luxurious comfort and somewhere to rest your glass of champagne, you will be guaranteed to turn heads as you step ashore from a superyacht’s limousine tender.
Taking its style cues from the Venetian water taxi and aesthetic inspiration from superyacht design, the limousine, or limo, tender is in many ways the marriage of function and form. Just as varied as the luxury yachts they depart from, limo tenders range from the classically styled to those which capture the spirit of their mothership in a scaled down model.
Whether you’re heading to a restaurant or attending a glamorous event, the limousine tender is the ultimate way to arrive and ensures you’ll stay looking your best.
