Lightweight, extremely stable and potentially emission-free-these are the characteristics of the brand new YTender, designed by YYachts. A project that emerges from a perhaps shared problem, because on board (particularly for sailors), tenders can prove a bit tedious, especially in terms of weight. YYachts, obviates the problem by designing one himself. A move that was not only smart, but also achieved its good result: a lightweight tender (170 kg x 3.65m – 230 kg x 4.35m) that is stable, performs both electrically and gasoline-powered, and, why not, is also aesthetically pleasing.

YTender, by YYachts

In short, a new generation of tenders could open up with the new YTender. Designed with the problems generated by the weight of tenders on their sailboats in mind, YYachts has instead made a RIB well suited for everyone and, it would seem, done it properly. Let’s take a closer look at it.


A New Generation

Accustomed to the use of carbon, which is ideal for keeping weights down, it is immediately obvious that this was also the material of choice for the YTender, which in fact features a carbon composite hull, weighing, overall, between 170 and 230 pounds, depending on size. In addition to the material, the hull is also developed for stability and handling, also facilitating embarking and disembarking by reducing roll.


In addition, to keep the footprint small while not complicating life on board, the tender also features an on-board compressor that can inflate or deflate the tubulars during loading operations. Finally, in terms of propulsion, it is of course available with both electric and conventional propulsion, with an internal combustion outboard. Of course, the look is customizable, and you can match the look of your boat.
