Humphreys Yacht Design in collaboration with UK boat builder Jason Carrington launched a new carbon superyacht tender at this year’s Monaco yacht show. Humphreys Yacht Design for the first time has dealt with a concept of semi-custom, sports boats built from carbon, titanium, teak and leather.

Jason Carrington, a highly respected builder of the state-of-the-art Grand Prix race boats and leading exponent of exotic composite materials was the one who initiated this project. He was particular to design a yacht that is fast, seaworthy and also has a shallow draft for maneuvering it close to the shore. Humphreys Yacht Design is expert in the design of high-speed leisure vessels. The company makes both motor and sail yachts and tenders, by using carbon and titanium in the construction.

The carbon boat is a new concept of semi-custom, carbon sports boat. It is especially meant for people looking for exclusive tenders for their luxurious yachts. The boat’s deep ‘V’ hull and long waterline length is achieved by a vertical stem and careful design around the water jets to ensure losses of hull area are kept to a minimum. This not only increases the overall efficiency of the yacht but also results in a boat with excellent sea keeping characteristics. The boat also features a water ballast system that allows 250 liters of water to be pumped into a tank in the bow, which enhances stability and gives the boat extra momentum to move through heavy seas. In light conditions the ballast tanks are emptied to allow speeds of 45 knots in smooth water. The tender is driven by twin 230 Alamarin water jets.

This high-speed tender has an ability to perform in a wide range of sea conditions. Moreover, the highly distinctive look of the tender, along with its comfort and safety makes it an attractive choice. The C-Boat was on public display as a support boat for Edmiston at the Monaco Yacht Show.
