Brazil-based M1 Yachts is new to the megayacht market, aiming for success with the head-turning M1 tender.
The M1 tender is intended to be a sleek complement to any primary yacht. Note the vertical bow and streamlined styling. It’s easy to imagine owners who prefer minimalist designs overall will be primarily interested in the M1 tender.
The dimensions of the M1 tender make it suitable to stow aboard a wide variety of megayachts. LOA is 23’5” (7.15 meters), with a beam of 7’7” (2.35 meters). Weight is about 2,204 pounds (1,000 kilograms).
Fully laden, the M1 tender draws 2’5” (0.75 meter). That, too, makes it comparable to other superyacht tenders. As the photo immediately above shows, the boat is beachable. Of course, the boat can serve as a dayboat for cruising, too. In fact, M1 Yachts conceived the fiberglass-constructed project to be a good performer. It says the M1 tender can achieve a top speed of 37 knots with a 135-hp engine.
As either a dayboat or a multi-purpose craft, the M1 tender can carry eight people. Two seating areas (one forward, one aft) flank the helm. A bimini can be added to provide shade over the helm and aft seating. Note, too, the space reserved for a swim platform.
M1 Yachts presented the boat to the public for the first time in March at a Brazil-based show. It’s now embarking on multi-national efforts.
