Greek yard unveils new 331GT
Onda Tenders has launched the first unit of its latest superyacht tender model, the 331 Gran Turismo (331GT). This 10-metre open tender has a fully customizable modular design to allow owners to create their ideal boat, offering a wide range of practical features.
The 331GT follows in the footsteps of Onda’s limousine tender, which was also designed by the award-winning luminaries at Scandinavia-based Mannerfelt Design Team.
“We are proud of what has been achieved with the 331GT, through extensive in-house research and development from our engineering team as well as the work we have done with Ocke and Ted Mannerfelt,”commented George Riginos, Onda CEO. “In recent years, we have witnessed a growing demand for custom open and limousine tenders, but with few options from which to choose. Thanks to over 40 years’ experience helping hundreds of clients with their boat searches at our sister company Riginos Yachts, we are in a uniquely strong position to build what the market wants and needs. We have combined our accumulated knowledge with that of the award-winning design team, resulting in an exceptional 10-metre open tender.”
The 331GT repeats the successful collaboration between the Greek yacht builder and the Mannerfelt Design Team, which has brought its extensive experience in the offshore racing world to the luxury leisure yacht market for the first time with Onda. With its two-step, deep-V hull and smaller, lighter engines, fuel consumption is reduced while the performance, range and potential for speed are reportedly uncompromised. The light weight construction keeps the 331GT hull light while the vinyl ester and foam core composite technology delivers a more robust seakeeping ability than carbon fiber alternatives, the builder claims. Top speeds of up to 60 knots are achievable on the 331GT with just a pair of 250HP outboards.
