Project Thetis

Designed for Acronautic, the Thetis project is a fusion between an open style RIB and luxury superyacht limousine tender. It will offer passengers an exhilarating ride though a typical V-shape performance hull capable of speeds in excess of 40 knots from twin 350hp outboard engines.

“Rigid Inflatable Boats have always been popular as superyacht tenders,” says Crone, Managing Director of Acronautic. “However, transporting a large number of guests in protected comfort has continually been a challenge – this vessel is designed to compliment the yachting experience and offer a safe, dry and luxurious experience.”

The Thetis Project will be managed in conjunction with Josh Richardson of Superyacht Tenders and Toys in Europe.
