In the case of the first vessel, which measured 8m and could accommodate 11 guests, it was fitted with a watersports towing post aft and a carbon fibre wakeboard post. There is also a recessed transom boarding ladder with stainless steel deck handles and various board assist vessels around the vessel.
She is powered by a 224kW Steyr diesel engine, which drives a Hamilton water jet, pushing her to speeds that ‘surpass the minimum speed requirement of 25 knots with 8 guests on board’. Bespoke features include a mobile phone docking station, a GPS plotter, UHF and VHF radios, a stereo system complete with subwoofers and LED lighting throughout.
A company statement read, ‘X-Craft is confident in its abilities to produce first class custom tenders and anticipates more interest in its Elite range of superyacht tender RIBs as a result of the successful hand over of its first model.’
