In collaboration with renowned superyacht engineers, Ribeye Tenders have been designed for simple in-life maintenance and are all supplied with clear wiring diagrams and documentation. All technical installation and lifting requirements are handled by Ribeye engineers who understand that all garages and tender bays are unique and have therefore engineered each platform to offer many solutions including custom lift points and chocks in accordance with the specific storage and launch situations of the yacht. Your project coordinator will provide visual concepts and technical drawings that can be shown to the owner, shipyard and crew.

All Ribeye tenders have a large degree of customisation and the team collaborate with the yacht and crew to ensure all details are met, from fixing points for whips to shore power locations. Ribeye encourages and appreciates customising every build to ensure the tender serves its purpose and meets the exacting needs of the mothership. Dependant on the tenders service requirements they broadly fit into the following categories: rugged explorer yacht specification, utility-based crew tenders, versatile chase boats, luxurious guest tenders and from 5-8.5m, MED SOLAS Rescue tenders carrying the MED wheel mark.

Jet – Stern Drive 5-10m

Ribeye specialises in luxury diesel inboard and jet superyacht tenders built on a high-volume hull architecture, creating a RIB superyacht tender that is more soft and dry riding than any other tender in its class. SOLAS and beachlander systems available.

Designed and manufactured in Great Britain, Ribeye’s dedicated team have invented the highest quality sound baffling system ensuring that these inboard tenders run almost silently for optimum guest transfer. Inboard propulsion systems are available from Yanmar and Volvo Penta, utilising their sterndrive systems, and for those requiring lighter weight tender builds often favouring the Volvo option due to the weight-saving aluminium block. Jet drive options are available from Hamilton and Alamarin depending on the specification of the tender.
