Superyacht Tenders.

One of the benefits of my job is that most of the boating/marine industry magazines land on my desk once a month, and a new one turned up today, to be published quarterly:-

Superyacht Tender magazine.
http://www.superyachttender.co.uk/
Issue No.1 is a RIB Special.

Published by Ribnets old mate Hugo Montgomery-Swan, and with the usual pair of Technical advisors Paul Lemmer and Tony Lee-Elliott, Itís a very glossy high class publication.
The other usual suspect associated with the magazine is Simon Everett the photographer who coincidentally once photographed a motorcycle I built for Streetfighters magazine.

Although I prefer Work boat style Ribs, some of those shown are amazing, mostly from the likes of Goldfish, Pascoe, Capelli etc, and most over 9M.

The storage solutions for the Ribs on the Superyachts themselves are clever, my favourite being a door opening in the side of one yacht from which a big Rib slides out bow first on an overhead extending crane ready to be lowered into the water.

The website is only a holding page at the moment, so perhaps if Hugo or even tom are visiting Ribnet today they will let me have permission to scan a couple of images, or even post some themselves.

Saw a couple of the Goldfish models at the Southampton Boat Show last week and they look sweet to say the least.....

Ah, yes, forgot that.
Perhaps Tom can sort some out.

Actually Tom's the one who isn't allowed to post at the moment as he kept on posting adverts despite several warnings.

Hugo registered in 2001 and has always been welcome to have his say here. He's only posted four times though which is a shame, and hasn't logged on since 2002!

Thanks for clearing that up John, its a shame Hugo doesn't post, I'm sure his views would be interesting.
