Weaver-Price have secured the design and structural engineering project of a high tech modern limosine tender to go in a 258 ft German built super yacht. The tender has a 'garage" in the side of the boat and the dimensions are dictated by this. The boat will be built a Goetz Custom Boats using pre-preg Carbon fiber over foam core, for an all up weight of 7,000lbs the windows are laminated glass with polarizing and reflective layers in the center. Using twin Yanmar BY260HP common rail Turbo charged engines with Bravo 3 outdrives the top speed will be over 30 Kts with 12 passengers and 2 crew - Welcome to Monte Carlo Sir!
