TT Blind Date

This tender was built for the Neptune Award winning 47m Heesen motor yacht Blind Date. It has an optional 1.6m removable bow section to facilitate stowing in a confined area.

The interior layout has been optimized as an owner’s sports RIB to give a comfortable high speed driving position.

Features include a ski/towing bollard, custom stainless steel side mounting swim ladder and over tube boarding steps with removable lollipop handrail, a freshwater shower and a high quality stereo system. Instrument packages are available to client specification.

The first vessel was built with a reinforced keel to facilitate drag/ramp stowage into the mothership’s aft lazarette. A three-point lift option is also available.

Compass tenders are individually designed and built to meet the specific requirements of our clients and to complement the mothership, from the initial concept and styling to the choice of equipment, paint colour and interior finish.
