Some yachts carry tenders for shuttling guests to and from shore. Others carry ones for fishing, or diving. The DutchCraft 25 can handle all three tasks, due to a modular deck design. Furthermore, it is an all-electric boat, boasting six hours of quiet, continuous operation at 6 knots.
The DurchCraft 25, debuting in January at Boot Düsseldorf, rose from the idea of giving buyers a flexible platform for more fun. Therefore, the area behind the center console can quickly see the installation of padded seating for 12 or custom dive racks for eight divers. Also for diving, you can request stowage for two SeaBobs. DutchCraft, owned by Zeelander Yachts, includes a freshwater tank for washdowns as well as swimmers’ and divers’ rinsing off. Alternately, keep the area clear and load PWCs—even a car, according to DutchCraft.
The 26’3” (8.04-meter) tender is additionally accommodating. For instance, the transom folds down to become a swim platform. Forward, a hinged bow door lets you and your guests hop straight from the boat onto the beach. Draft is just 1’5” (0.82 meter). and 7’8” (2.38-meter) beam accommodate a multitude of configurations.
Whatever your intended use, the DutchCraft 25, with a 7’8” (2.38-meter) beam, is an entirely electric craft, too. You can reportedly run at 32 knots for 75 minutes straight, or scale back to 6 knots for six hours of leisurely cruising. The standard battery power is 79 kWh, though 106 and 127 kWh batteries are optional.
One final note: The DutchCraft 25 does indeed fit in tender garages. The center console’s hardtop pivots forward, reducing height to 6’4” (1.97 meters). Fully upright, the height is 11 feet (3.33 meters).
Starting price is €275,000. Look for a limousine tender version to come soon.
