Built completely from carbon fibre, Oronero has a number of features including a dinette, which can be converted into a bed, a galley and shower room with WC. The interior is finished in a clear oak wood and beige leather and fitted with air conditioning units. The cockpit is located on the main deck, along with a TV and dinette that can be converted into a solarium.
However, the main feature of the tender, which draws inspiration from the automotive sector, is the convertible hard-top, which Pirard claims to be the first of its kind: "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."
To make boarding and disembarking of the tender as easy and safe as possible, the Spanish design studio has incorporated two folding platforms on either side of the hull.
A top speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 22 knots is achieved from its two 280 hp hybrid diesel engines, with a cruising speed of seven knots when running electric motors. This technology helps to make the boat more environmentally friendly and minimise noise pollution when approaching or leaving a mothership or marina in the evening.
