What differentiates megayacht tender and a daycruiser? The answer is not at all simple and most of the time the line of demarcation is so thin to escape and vanish in the considerations on the characteristics of unity. Often it is the label that the manufacturer puts on the boat to determine the belonging to one or the other category, but what makes the real difference is the main protagonist: the owner. Because ultimately it is the use that is done that designates unequivocally the characteristics of the megatender and those of the daycruiser. A tender must have adequate cruising speed, good load capacity especially in terms of transportable people, a particularly dry well for moving around in the evening and allowing water sports or wake boarding. In fact if the “mother” boat is big these tenders do not have particular size limits. Basically we can say that a tender is very similar to a day cruiser, which assumes the role when the “mother boat” remains comfortably moored while the owner and guests move only on the smaller boat.
