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.
