3 Submarine Systems for S/Y A tenders
Manson Anchors and Bowmaster were approached by S/Y A’s owners’ team regarding a very high-profile series of projects. These projects were to be three tenders for S/Y A, owned by a Russian Billionaire.
New Zealand based Lloyd’s Stevenson had been set the task of bringing the unique tender design concepts to life. These concepts included 2 limousines (SYA 2 and SYA 3), built using carbon-fibre and e-glass that would be used for transporting guests. As well as a high-speed tender (SYA 1) for exclusive owner use; this carbon fibre boat can reach 53 knots.
S/Y A features Submarine anchor systems so the tenders were to mimic this same system. All of the vessels had a very futuristic look, making the submarine system even more fitting.
The tenders were to be stored in custom tender garages on either side of S/Y A’s hull. These garages were built to just be big enough to house the tenders, with only 50mm clearance. This meant the Bowmaster team had to be extra precise with dimensions and continuous assessment throughout the project.
The Bowmaster design engineers designed 3 Submarine systems with 20kg/ 44lbs Hiding anchors. Each system had slight adjustments depending on the exact shape of the hull. The speed of SYA 1 was a taken into consideration by Bowmaster’s design engineers.
The systems supplied included full turnkey supply with locking stops, winches and Submarine anchors.
