Leveraging a heritage of premium Dutch boat building our sole focus today is to offer full custom Tenders that match the superyacht on which they serve.
Our team includes specialists with experience in building carbon fibre Volvo Ocean and America's Cup boats. Their unrivaled knowledge of composites allows us to build you a Tender of exceptional quality and entirely to your requirements.
To help you visualise the final designs we will construct full size mock ups of the interior or deck layout. For the finishes we will create alternative upholstery samples to ensure your Tender is as personal and unique as possible.
Working with your superyacht designer and interior stylist we will conceive a unique Tender concept to fit your garage and match your specific needs.
Our Naval architect, Patrick Banfield (Wally tender, Fjord) will design a hull and propulsion combination to optimise the garage space and Tender performance.
Every Tender has its own hydrodynamic and weight study to ensure perfect balance and performance before precision moulds are cut by 5 axis milling machines.
Once your project is complete the moulds will be destroyed, and your Tenders will be truly unique.
With an exquisite eye for detail and a passion for creating exclusive products, our craftsmen are in a league of their own. The boats on which they have worked range from American Cup winners to some of the most iconic superyachts in the world.
Whether working with carbon fibre, traditional wood or the highest quality leather, the Tenderworks craftsman have access to the best quality materials available.
We work closely with the superyacht builder to ensure the tenders are a perfect fit both physically and operationally.
With Feadship we go a little further and, acknowledging our unique process and standards, Feadship monitors the design and construction of the boats bound for their customers and finally authorises us to put their name on them.
Tenderworks won the “Best Tender Design” for our beautiful limousine tender, Faith, at the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2018.
The subcommittee members said that the boat matched "the gentle curves and design ethos of its mothership" and praised "an extraordinarily beautiful tender that goes from limousine to open with the touch of one button".
