Volvo Penta power in new tender boat for super-yachts16/09/2013
Tender boats are used to transport the passengers to and from super-yachts. At the Monaco Boat Show 2012, the Italian boat builder Dariel introduced a 31 feet stowable tender boat that caught the eyes of the super-yacht builders.
The tender boat “dLimo” is a unique combination of design and comfort with propulsion power from twin Volvo Penta D4 Aquamatic.
“The “ dLimo” is designed to be an extension of the luxury experience of these super-yachts. The Volvo Penta engines contribute with their unique features on reliability, onboard comfort and low emissions. Everything is perfectly matched and adds to the feeling of an exclusive journey”, says Paolo Buzzini, Dealer Business Area Manager at Volvo Penta in Italy.
The first boat has already been sold and delivered to the 260 feet super-yacht “ Chopi Chopi”. This is the largest yacht ever built by the Ferretti Group Company “CRN”, one of the world´s most prominent super-yacht builders.
“The owners of these super-yachts have extremely high demands, and we are pleased that we can match their requirements”, continues Paolo Buzzini.
As a result of the increased demand, Dariel is now in the midst of making a 39 feet and a 56 feet version of the “ dLimo”, designed with Volvo Penta D6 Aquamatic and Volvo Penta IPS900. The Italian dealer Nordovest Motori will also support and be a vital part of this project.
