    Hello, I am working on a Superyacht design and I was wondering what are the typical heights for a tender bay. (I am planning a lift up door and pull out tender) (assume less then 30' tender).

    Is 8' enough? or do i need more like 10,11,12 etc... Whats the shortest I can go and still deploy a twenty some foot tender

    As far as I've seen the standard is 5-6'. You can go shorter if it's just a rib. It really just depends on the tender it'self and how much more future expandibility you want.

    I think your best approach would be to spec some appropriate tenders and look at the space requirements their manufacturers recommend, then add however much clearance is needed for a crane capable of handling the weight of that tender. There's so much variability in existing designs, it really depends on the intended use and the particular type of boat that will occupy it.

    I didn't realize you wanted one that big, but yes, marshmat is right. It depends on the tender and crane.

    Ok, this comment is me talking through my hat. But perhaps the location of the tender bay will be a factor? I would want the margin of a little extra height for a hull side bay over one through the transom. Although you can find plenty of examples of hull side bays with tight clearance.
