A tender that really flies

Some boat owners like to anchor out to ensure privacy when voyaging. But then the ride into the dock for supplies can be a long one if you don’t have a fast tender. The owners of the Nordhavn 55 Tenacious may have the ultimate in fast tenders, a seaplane! In fact, with a twin-engine seaplane as your dinghy, it changes the whole meaning of anchoring out. You could drop the hook in the San Juan Islands and fly to Seattle for supplies.

Actually, the owners of Tenacious are avid flyers as well as power voyagers and don’t generally bring the seaplane along when they go voyaging.
