J Craft Torpedo

J Craft Torpedo - Neptune
Copyright: monacoeye • 2010 Monaco Yacht Show • Do not copy without permission.

Model name: J Craft Torpedo
Length: 41 ft • 13 m
Model year: 2009
Builder: J Craft
Architect: Södergren Yacht Design

Neptune, a Swedish-built J Craft Torpedo tender added a bit of colour to the Monaco Yacht Show.

This sky-blue Torpedo is called Neptune. It can reach speeds of 44 knots with its two Volvo Penta engines. At that speed it has a range of about 350 nautical miles.

Although reminiscent of wooden Rivas from the 1960s, with leather upholstery and inlaid wooden panelling, J Craft hulls are built from modern materials; vinylester and fibre glass with a PVC core.

J Craft were pleased to announce that they received an order for a new Torpedo, on the first day of the Monaco Yacht Show, and it will be delivered to the owner early 2011.

Pictured below, the dashboard of the white-hulled, Baccarat, the new top of the range Torpedo R line. The Torpedo R can reach speeds of 50 knots, with its Volvo IPS 600 system, and comes with matching luggage!

Yacht Tenders

Superyacht tenders

In addition to superyachts, the Monaco Yacht Show also puts on a good show in the tender department. There are usually about a dozen exhibiting tender manufacturers, but all the yachts moored in the bay also send their tenders in and out of the port to collect guests, brokers and clients, and many other small boats visit from the Cannes Boat Show.

Although any craft can be used as a tender, a few different styles predominate, with many of the larger yachts having a variety of different boats for different occasions. A wooden tender, such an antique Riva from the sixties, always expresses a great sense of style. SY Mitseaah, for example, has a Riva Junior. Now that Riva no longer make wooden boats, many other manufacturers produce retro-looking models, such as Swedish-based J Craft, although modern materials are used for the hull.

In the wooden category, Serenella hand-crafted Venetian limousines - used as water taxis in Venice - are both elegant and protect guests from the elements.

Using more modern materials, but still with a traditional look, US builders Hinckley and Chris Craft produce a wide variety of runabouts.

The very large yachts will often have one or two Australian-built Vikal limo or "semi-limos" on board. Danish-based Royal Tender, has also entered the enclosed limo market recently.

RIBs, short for Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boats, are the easiest sort of boat to handle for crew, as there is minimal danger of damaging the all important paintwork on the yacht, or indeed scuffing the tender itself on the quayside. They have a rigid hull surrounded by an inflatable rubber sponson or tube. Novurania are popular general-purpose tenders in this category, and Italian-based Dariel have some very elegant designs too.

Although most yacht tender manufacturers are able to provide a great deal of customisation for their clients, some yachts have one-off tenders that often match the design of the yacht. The Philippe Starck designed Vaudrey Miller tenders to A, and Espen Øino's Moon Goddess spring to mind, although the latter is really a yacht in its own right, and carries a tender of its own!

In a wider use of the word, any vehicle, craft, or aircraft can be termed a tender if it carries passengers or goods to or from the main yacht - many of the larger yachts carry helicopters for longer journeys in remote locations, while some yachts carry cars on board.

Check out the tender link to get an overview of a wide variety of boats on display at the Monaco Show and in use throughout the year.

Model: XSR48
Length: 14.6 m • 48 ft
Year: 2007
Builder: XSMG

This little beauty, from UK based XSMG, was sprinting around Monegasque waters yesterday evening. The XRS48 comes in a variety of engine configurations. The Race Spec 2 x 2000 hp diesels can reach top speeds of 85 knots.

The 2400 hp petrol V8 option is even faster and will take you to 95 knots (110 mph - 175 kph) !! - but is not available in Europe due to emissions regulations. Edmiston is showing them off - prices start at £1m - $2m.

The XSR48 will be at the 2007 Monaco Yacht Show in September, in the tender section. XSMG are also trying to set speed records for London - Monaco and London - St Petersburg. There will be plenty of fuel stops on the way as the range, at 50 knots cruising speed, is 300 nautical miles.
