The name Reale Yachts may be new in yachting, but the team behind it is not. In fact, they have spent many years working for major builders in their home country of Italy. While it primarily focuses on rugged-looking, long-range steel and aluminum custom yachts, Reale Yachts is additionally constructing custom tenders. The Heritage tender line, which already has one boat in the water, is for owners who want to take an active role in design.
Interestingly, similar to the Reale Yachts megayachts, the Heritage custom tenders employ aluminum construction. The shipyard deliberately chose this seemingly unusual material because of its recyclable nature. The first tender, shown here, measures 37’6” (11.45 meters) LOA and has a beam of 12’4” (3.77 meters). Fore and aft seating and sunpads make it clear that this particular tender is for pure fun in the sun. The performance numbers make it clear, too. Reale says that triple 300-hp outboards let this Heritage tender cruise between 30 and 45 knots. Top speed, meanwhile, is an equally eye-opening 57 knots.
Of course, since each boat is a custom project, you can request more traditional twin-outboard engines, either gasoline or diesel. Regardless, Reale Yachts asserts that the in-house team of engineers ensures each Heritage tender provides a dry ride and soft landing.
You can also request a boat outfitted for more than just sunning. For instance, you can have a fishing platform, or a bit more sedate pure cruising boat. Starting from a blank sheet of paper, you further select the features and accessories that are important to you. Passenger capacities are available up to 16 people, too.
Reale Yachts has this first Heritage tender at its shipyard in Pisa, Italy, available for demo rides.
