    Jorgen,

    You need to narrow the questions a little. I have worked on a lot of different yachts, discussing all of them would take a lot of writing. Way beyond what I am willing to invest in your project.

    I understand. But then you would be a perfect person for filling out our survey in the provided link. It contains very spesific questions.

    Thanks!

    The size of the mothership is important. I work 20 to 30 meter sailing yachts and we can not carry tender toys.

    As for environmentally feindly...yes...investigate electric. In harbours tender speeds are limited to less than 6 knots by law. Typical tendering duty is short duration...plenty of time for recharge. Guests on sailing yachts value a quite propulsion system which does not interfere with conversation and frighten the wildlife.

    When you design your tender build all safety equipment into the tender...no loose gear.

    Boarding is always challenging. bow on ... side too ...and from water into the tender .. must be easy. I deal with 80 year old sailors.

    Visibility is an issue. I'm afraid to get run down by high speed craft at night. Reflector tape and robust easy to use running lights.
