The Little Tender
a 22 footer
A fast 22 footer, inspired by the classic italian Aqua Riva, containing some contemporary influences from yacht builders like Frauscher.  Fluid lines and soft volumes reminiscent of 1950s automotive styling and product design.

My objective was to design a compact and integrated overall appearance. To accomplish a visually streamlined exterior, utilities such as a table, lighting and cleats are flush fitted, the anchor and rear acces steps are both concealed behind a hatch. All these elements protrude when needed.

The yacht comes in two models:
- a silent cruiser with a small sun deck
  [ hybrid: gas turbine + electric propulsion ]
- a high performance version with a covered rear end
  [ 350 V8 ]
Night view with all-round submerged hull lighting.
