Motorboat & Yachting: Scorpion RIBs has revealed details of its latest model, the Scorpion 1080 Jet Lander, which will expand its range of 10m superyacht tenders.
RIB manufacturer Scorpion has announced that it will be launching a new 10m model in the form of the Scorpion 1080 Jet Lander. Designed to serve as a superyacht tender, the new arrival has enough seating for 16 people and can also serve as a platform for wakeboarding, swimming and diving, the firm added.
Engine options come in the form of in-board Hamilton jet drives, ranging from 370hp-480hp, which adds an extra element of safety for watersports users.
Key features include a set of lightweight carbon-fibre beaching steps (pictured right), which offer a more elegant way of getting in and out of the water than your standard swim ladder.
Based on the same hull as the popular Sting model, the Scorpion 1080 Jet Lander should offer a smooth and dry ride for all passengers.
Prices and launch dates are yet to be confirmed, but Scorpion is due to exhibit at both the Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows this year, so the wise money is on a September reveal.
Motorboat & Yachting: The Plymouth yard has announced that it will be launching the Princess V58 Open as well as the S65 sportsbridge at the Southampton Boat Show.
First details of the S65 emerged back in April, but the Princess V58 Open is a new development for fans of Princess Yachts.
A statement from the Plymouth-based manufacturer hailed the Princess V58 Open as “the first in the next generation of Princess high-performance sports yachts.”
Highlights include a large forward hull window that has been designed to flood the lower accommodation areas with light.
Meanwhile, the one-level main deck prioritises socialising space, with fore and aft sunpads in addition to a centre teak saloon table.
Prices and engine options are yet to be confirmed for the V58 Open, but Princess has revealed the full list of 12 motor yachts that it is bringing to the 2015 Southampton Boat Show, which is as follows: Princess V39 | Princess 43 | Princess V48 | Princess 52 | Princess 56 | Princess V58 Open (new) | Princess 60 | Princess S65 (new) | Princess 68 | Princess 72 Yacht | Princess 82 Yacht | Princess 88 Yacht
