The prob­lem with out­board-pow­ered ten­ders is that the out­board, when tilted up, adds con­sid­er­able length to the ba­sic boat for stor­age. The goal of Palm Beach Ten­ders, a Florida-based col­lab­o­ra­tion with Princess Yachts, was to cre­ate an in­tel­li­gent so­lu­tion, re­sult­ing in their patented elec­tro-hy­draulic tran­som that folds the out­board into the aft sec­tion of the ten­der at the touch of a but­ton. This al­lows a larger ten­der to be stored in the same area or tran­som garage, as well as mak­ing launch­ing and re­cov­ery eas­ier. The Palm Beach 1200C is an 11-foot 9-inch cen­ter con­sole RIB that car­ries five adults (567 pounds.) and is pow­ered by an out­board up to 40 horse­power. The con­sole has a bench seat and hy­draulic steer­ing, and there is ad­di­tional for­ward seat­ing. Con­trol of the mov­able tran­som is from the dash­board or a hand­held re­mote.
