Italian-based tender manufacturer Technorib has unveiled its new flagship tender, the Pirelli 1900. At 18.5m, this is the largest tender Technorib has created since its founding more than 50 years ago, representing an important milestone in the collaboration between Technorib and Pirelli, which has now been bound for 10 years.

Having been based on the lines of the Pirelli 1400, the new 1900 has also been designed by Mannerfelt Design Team, who has taken inspiration from its extensive experience from working on competition hulls, with 16 world championship titles in offshore racing. However, the Pirelli 1900 is not designed for racing, but rather as regular rigid inflatable boat, which guarantees seaworthiness and solidity.

According to Technorib, “the hull has been designed to offer high performance without compromising comfort”. As a result, the Pirelli 1900 has a reasonably wide beam at 5m, which translates into usable interior space with a ceiling height of two meters.

As with all the tenders in the range, the new 1900 has the distinctive Pirelli tread design on the inflatable tubes of the boat. However, this time the featured pattern has been inspired by the Blue Wet tread, used by Pirelli in leading track races, such as Formula 1, paying tribute to the company’s expertise in designing tyres for extremely wet conditions.

The tender’s basic layout features two cabins, two bathrooms and a central living area, which includes the galley, so there is plenty of space on board to comfortably transport and even accommodate guests.

The new tender will make her debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017 in September, where Tecnorib will display three additional tenders – the Pirelli 880, Pirelli 1100 and Pirelli 1400 – alongside the 1900.
