Most yacht enthusiasts know the famous mega-yacht Christina O. But did you know her tender was a Hacker-Craft? How about Talitha G? Or Odessa II? Yep, both had Hacker-Craft tenders too. And there are many more.

 WHOM IT'S FOR: The yachtsman searching for more than a ride to and from a vessel. This is for the guy who wants to make a statement about his passion for the pastime — someone who appreciates classic design wrapped in a modern build.

PICTURE THIS: Your crew powers up the twin 260 hp VW diesels on this 32-foot floating limo, and you and 10 friends whisk away from the big boat at 35 knots for a day of exploring a new port of call. The excitement of a first visit is palpable. Maybe some shopping and an afternoon of dining on local cuisine quayside? Back on the limo tender, you pour some rosé, sit back into soft leather seats and toast to good fortune.
