The Xten­der 9.7m limo ten­der’s pedi­gree in­cludes a Vri­pack hull. The boat also has a re­tractable Bi­mini top and seat­ing for six.

Limou­sine ten­ders oc­cupy rare fied air. They’re not of­ten docked in a lo­cal canal; in­stead, they’re likely rest­ing in the belly of a mega-yacht. As such, they re­quire panache and cus­tomiza­tion, both of which the Xten­der 9.7m Limou­sine of­fers. With a hull by Vri­pack, a re­tractable Bi­mini top and fold­ing wind­screens, the boat is de­signed to get guests ashore in com­fort. The in­te­rior cabin, which seats six, can be com­pletely closed off from weather. On nice days, the bow seat­ing has un­ob­structed views. Whom It’s For: This limou­sine ten­der is for the mega-yacht owner who ap­pre­ci­ates mas­cu­line lines, 40-knot speeds and the abil­ity to let guests board from port or star­board with equal ease. Pic­ture This: It’s New Year’s Eve, and you’re moored off St. Barths. It’s 15 min­utes un­til mid­night, and you want to be ashore when the clock strikes 12. Hop in your Xten­der Limou­sine and cruise to­ward land. With 520 to­tal horse­power, you’ll make it be­fore the ball drops.
