Linssen Yachts is offering the RIBs as options on its displacement vessels

Linssen Yachts of the Netherlands has begun offering Pirelli-branded RIB tenders as options on its displacement motoryachts from 9m-15m.

Linssen marketing manager Paul Beelen told IBI: “The tenders will bear the Linssen colours and logo and range from 2.75m to 3.30m. The 3.30m tender has jet propulsion and is an option for the larger Linssens.” The smaller tenders (J29, J33, S28, S31 and S34) have an outboard engine.

Beelen says all Pirelli tenders are meant for ship-to-shore transport but the large ones are fast and “add spice to the boating experience.”

The tenders are made by Tecnorib, the Milan-based licensee of Pirelli Speedboats and Tenders. Linssen Yachts has unveiled a demo boat. The tender range comprises five models in the Linssen hull colours and striping. Linssen Yachts has also developed Linssen Board & Tender Davits for the Pirellis. It arranged for the tender deal through Best Boats International Yacht Brokers in the Netherlands.

“We make 70 motoryachts a year,” says Beelen. “We turned to Best Boats as we do not have the expertise to make tenders.”
