This yacht is not only the first project completed by the Perini Navi group after their reorganisation, but it is also the first motoryacht to be built under this brand, having previously been under the Picchiotti label.
More importantly the Eco-Tender is the only planing hull in the company's history. The Perini Navi Group has never built anything like this before.
The project was designed for the owner of a
The solution to all three wishes was found: «tender» is a compact motor superyacht. A shapeshifter in itself - whether a tender is a superyacht or a superyacht is a tender is a big question.
«This is obviously not an ordinary tender, but a representative of the new generation of supertenders
equippedwith facilities and technology of the appropriate level. This ultra-modern tender breaks new ground at a time when the brand continues to work on improving its product line to meet the changing demands of the market»," comments Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of Perini Navi.

During port manoeuvres or in areas with a particularly fragile natural ecosystem, a special variant of engine operation can be activated
According to Perini Navi Sales Director Luca Boldrini, this is the first time such a sophisticated hybrid system has been installed on a superyacht tender.
The boat has a draft of only 1.15 meters, which will allow her to approach shallow waters and greatly expand the geography where the Eco-Tender will be
Not only the engine is unique for a yacht of this size, but also the navigation system. The control panel features a 4k Touch Screen, via which all the systems onboard can be controlled via the I-Bridge
The augmented reality function, which connects navigation data with video images, will make technical information clear.
While at anchor, the Anchor Tracking System (AWS) can display and monitor all necessary equipment. Thanks to it you can see everything that is happening around the boat: the system «sees» in 360 degrees. Using radar, thermal imaging and a flashlight, the AWS shows the motion tracks of the surrounding vessels. The system can be programmed to activate an alarm when a dangerous approach is detected.
For communications with the outside world there are two satellite station terminals on board providing
Now the boat is undergoing sea trials. It is expected to be handed over to the owner in April.
