Articles Charter Yachts With Chase Boats: What Are They And Why Should You Charter One?

Discover how the modern chase boat elevates your yachting experience, blending speed with luxury for unforgettable experiences.

Gone are the days when a yacht tender’s sole purpose was to ferry guests ashore or assist with day-to-day operational tasks, often at the mercy of the elements and with limited capacity. In a dynamic shift towards opulence and efficiency, the yachting community is witnessing the rise of the chase tender – a vessel that transcends the conventional, marrying speed with luxury.

The chase boat, a term once reserved for speed boats trailing regatta yachts, has evolved into an indispensable feature of the modern superyacht. These vessels, ranging in length from 9 to 20 metres, boast customisation levels that would make any luxury enthusiast’s heart flutter. From plush accommodations and cutting-edge technology to impressive cruising capabilities and top speeds, chase tenders are now a symbol of the avant-garde in yachting. Their independence from the mothership affords charter guests more expansive exploration on their vacation, propelled by engines that pack a punch, ensuring quick and agile navigation.


At the core of every chase tender lies a harmonious blend of functionality and luxury. These vessel’s optimise space, with cabins strategically placed to maximise comfort and utility. But the allure of a chase boat does not end with its accommodation.

Whether it’s facilitating an impromptu water sports session, serving as a gourmet dining spot, or providing a quick getaway to secluded beaches, a chase tender adapts to the diverse needs of its guests. Ingenious storage solutions ensure that an array of water toys is always at hand, while ample power guarantees exhilarating speeds and swift transitions between locales.

A chase tender serves as your passport to exploring hidden gems along the coastline, from ancient towns to untouched sands, with an ease and speed unmatched by traditional tenders. Beyond its exploratory prowess, the chase tender brings an added layer of luxury to your yachting experience. It’s a vessel that not only matches but often surpasses a limousine tender’s comfort and elegance, equipped with amenities that make every journey from ship to shore memorable.

Whether it’s conducting reconnaissance for the perfect anchorage spot or providing a private, luxurious escape for guests in a cove the mothership can’t reach, a chase tender adds a dimension of freedom and flexibility to the yachting experience.


Chartering superyachts with chase boats enhances your luxury vacation, offering elegant access to hard-to-reach destinations in comfort and style.
