Tender transparent 220T Verga1958

A transparent boat that can be used as a small boat or as a tender. It’s an all-Italian gem made by Verga1958, and you can even install an electric motor in it. The small boats produced by the shipyard, which recently unveiled its new dayboat, the Sextant 6.8, are made of polycarbonate, and some are also 100 percent recyclable.

What do all-transparent panorama boats look like


Verga1958 is an Italian company(celebrating its 85th anniversary this year) that among the various boat models it has designed has come up with two completely transparent boats made of polycarbonate, which you can use as a tender for the cabin boat or independently for short trips. The smallest (2.20 meters) is the Tender 220 T. This boat has an ingenious “catamaran” hull that makes it much more stable and weighs only 29 kilograms. Regarding propulsion, a pair of oars is provided, but the Tender 220 T also supports outboard propulsion given by a motor up to 3.9 hp, although the manufacturer recommends the use of an electric outboard. Slightly larger than this (2.50 m) is the
Coral View 250
which has in contrast to its smaller brother a classic V-shaped hull, weighs 37 kilograms and also supports for propulsion an outboard motor up to 3.9 hp or (even better here) an electric motor. In fact, both models are sold on their own or as a“package” with a 24-pound electric motor for thrust, a solution for moving quietly and environmentally friendly, with the ability to reach even protected marine areas not navigable with endothermic engines.
