Conceived by Alex Pirard Yacht Design with engineering by Verme Projects, she was the official tender for the Perini Navi Cup 2011 in Porto Cervo. A notable feature is the folding hard-top, which designer Alex Pirard claims provides the first completely convertible experience of a limousine tender in the world. He said:
"Other tender limousines have part of a roof that isn’t convertible, meaning guests have the sense of parts of steel and glass around them…this is a much more complete experience. Guests will feel completely in the open with nothing around them."

As well as her folding hard top, which allows for flexible cruising in all weather conditions, the yacht features a luxurious interior design. The interior combines clear oak wood and beige leather with carbon fibre, offering a ‘high tech and elegant ambience’. Pirard said the objective was to offer an exclusive experience on board a tender, which he feels is not widely available.
"Owners with superyachts of 80 to 100 metres need another small boat for when they go to a restaurant or another boat. But many don’t have a tender that is completely comfortable. Oronero, with its beautiful wood and leather interior, offers superior comfort.’
The tender reaches a maximum speed of 25 Knots and has 2x280 Hp Diesel Hybrid engines. She is completely constructed of carbon fibre in order to keep her as light as possible.
She will be on display at Monaco Marine Wharf from 21-24 September 2011.
