Tenders have become almost as sophisticated as superyachts on the high seas. Case in point: this incredibly elegant limousine from Wooden Boats. Christened Limo Blue, the new 27-footcis reminiscent of the classic wooden dayboats of the 1950s and 1960s, with elegant lines that stretch from bow to stern. According to the Italian shipyard, the ship was inspired by Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita.” A 1960 film titled “The Good Life” celebrated Italian style, elegance, and beauty. The limousine is as well.
“With the 8.3-meter Limo Blue, I thought of bringing a stylistic effect to the deck and upper surfaces inspired by Fellini’s La Dolce Vita and the timeless design of the corridors of time,” shipyard designer and founder Marco Arnaboldi said in a statement.
The carbon-composite forged hull has a deep V hull that provides impressive speed and good seaworthiness. Equipped with a 270-hp inboard engine, it promises a maximum speed of 35 knots and a cruising speed of 30 knots. She also has about 100 nautical miles to facilitate all kinds of pleasure trips.
Additionally, Limo Blue has a draught of just under three tonnes and a beam of just two feet. This means that the light catamaran can easily navigate shallow waters that are not allowed for larger superyachts. Its deckhouse also conveniently drops down to gun height when it needs to be stored in the garage.
The appearance of the board can be customized to the customer’s taste. The first example, currently under construction in the Viareggio yard, has an open wheelhouse in the bow with seating for two crew, as well as long chairs that can accommodate 10 guests and two more places aft. Alternatively, it is possible to place the bridge in the stern and the sofa in the bow.
Other creature comforts include a six-speaker high-tech sound system, corner bubble wrap, stylish LED lighting, air conditioning, a fresh water tank, and USB connections for charging devices. According to
On wooden boats, the first hull is expected to hit the water in June 2023; it is then loaded onto a 197-foot megayacht.
