The Owner was our first customer ever to come in his private jet from the USA across the Pacific, and then the full length of Australia to visits his two 10m Tenders being built at Vikal.
This is the first beach-able Limousine Vikal has delivered equipped with a full hydraulic bow door. From a design and technical perspective it was a challenging and complex build.
To achieve the inclusion of a hydraulic bow door on this tender, the windscreen, foredeck and hull all had to be cut to accommodate the long walkway from helm through to the bow. When closed up the door was a perfectly functioning yet barely visible feature.
In addition this Limo was equipped with on board hydraulic stainless steel docking rams and a power pack. With reverse cycle air conditioning, 240 volt generator, two D4 Volvo 300 hp Diesels, bow thruster, premium sound, leather interior and heavy duty sound insulation - this was a very high spec Limo.
Given the equipment included, achieving an overall weight of 5800 kg for this 42 knot Limo, was an impressive result.
