This specialized tender was one of three ordered for a 130m + yacht.
The tender was uniquely developed for a client who required the delivery and retrieval of a Humvee vehicle, to and from a beach environment (from the superyacht). The machinery installed on board made this build a particularly complex and challenging task for Vikal.
Waterjets were installed to minimise draft and 2 winches and anchors were installed into the transom to improve safety during operations. The bow door had to be of a maximum size and was hydraulically folded out in three layers in order to achieve the reach. A hydraulic deck winch was installed to assist the Hummer during loading.
In addition fire fighting equipment was installed as well as a dive compressor and a 400kg capacity crane for handing heavy components for service onboard the yacht.
