New Model: Toy 47 Tender

It's been a renaissance going on since a decade plus, with offers coming from USA, Italy and England. But lets be honest, there is something special about the new Toy 47 Tender and the style of boat its represents that of the traditional down East lobster cruiser, that says use me. Could be the fat rubber rub rail, or its squarish sloop stern, surely the 47 Tender has not the usual harbor queen looks most lobster yachts and cruisers represent. The new Toy 47 Tender is a project from Nauta who did an outstanding job in presenting a classic looking yet practical boat, which the market seems to be rewarding with already five hulls sold in less to a year since hull one was launched. Day users will surely like the gigantic cockpit which uses two thirds of the 47 Tender length, an area divided for sun worshipers with the sun-pads and lounging forward thanks to the two C-shaped dinettes.  Down below is space for two cabins, shower head, galley, and an utility room. Owners room is located to fore. Power is twin Cummins 480hp engines with ZF pod drives propulsion giving max speeds of 35 knots.
