A Truly World Class Luxury Yacht Tender.
The Generation 525 luxury yacht tender will exceed your expectations in both function and comfort. Our attention to hull design and engineering along with more standard features have resulted in a truly world class deluxe Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB).
Most RIB manufacturers use basic plywood stringers to support the hull and top deck, Walker Bay incorporates a Polyurethane Composite Micro Stringer System in the floor which is lighter, stronger than wood and results in a smoother ride.
Where typical RIBs may have an air cavity between the hull and deck, Walker Bay bonds the hull and deck together using a unidirectional glass and a polyurethane stringer grid bonding system. This absorbs the impact from wave chop, makes the hull stronger and lighter and provides permanent positive flotation.
When it comes to quality control, we pay attention to every detail. Distortion and misalignment in a hull contributes to poor handling and stress cracks. Walker Bay creates a straighter and better riding boat by incorporating a proprietary “jig and alignment” process for the joining of the main parts so stress energy is distributed efficiently for a better handling and longer lasting boat.
The extra deep V-hull in all Walker Bay Generation luxury yacht tenders is made for cutting through water. As well, the customized gas tank fits in the bow section of the keel, moving weight forward in the boat to further reduce the impact of rough chop and contribute to early planing.
As the Generation 525 DLX luxury yacht tender propels forward, the concave chines deflect the water down, reducing spray and increasing hull traction for aggressive maneuvering. The stern of the hull, meanwhile, flattens out to facilitate planing at low speeds. Above the water, the sloping design of the bow step pushes the boat down at the front while the downward curve of the stern lifts the tail to increase stability and handling.
