Since the first delivery of 2 all white Hurricane diesel tenders to the 195’ La Baronessa in 1995, Zodiac Milpro has continued to develop as a small but important supplier to the Large Yacht fleet.
One of the main factors in choosing a builder for a custom yacht tender is the degree of engineering resources available to support a credible and properly documented effort. Zodiac Hurricane has a permanent staff of in house engineers plus accredited subcontractors that provide the know how of ensuring that your custom tender will fit your requirements .
Zodiac Hurricane is one of the few Yacht tender builders that actively maintain a certificated Quality Assurance system compliant with ISO 9001-2008 which provides customers with a level of comfort that technical issues are properly managed which ensures traceability throughout processes.
Zodiac Hurricane can propose sensible engineered solutions to satisfy most of the challenges and incompatibilities that arise.
The platforms that provide the basis of the tenders are all mature proven hulls that are currently in operation around the world on Naval ships, Coastguard vessels and Yachts. They are finished to a yacht quality level whilst retaining their reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) classifications that have been mandated by different Departments of Defence. Therefore a Yacht Captain and Chief engineer will be benefitting from the same level of RAM that a Navy ship expects from their tender. What this means is that spare parts are fully documented and available to be shipped anywhere in the world using modern logistic services companies.
Available in 6 sizes from 5.8m to 11m, Zodiac Hurricane Custom Yacht tenders are outboard powered or diesel powered driving either sterndrives or waterjets.
