Episode 4: Let’s talk tenders!
For years, the superyacht tender was just a commodity that had to settle for a place in the shadows and the yacht was the star that got all the attention. But times are changing, and the tender market has significantly grown and professionalised. How can we explain this golden age of tenders? And what challenges do these vessels present for builders and crew?
Stefan Zucker, founder of Zucker & Partner, talks about the safety and insurance challenges with bigger tenders and chase boats. Zucker is joined by Dries Wajer, managing director of Wajer Yachts, one of the most successful builders of day and chase boats. They are joined by co-founder of Tenderworks, Ernest Menten, who shares his thoughts on the relatively new trend of custom tender building.
