Some tenders are designed purely for function. The Sacs Strider 50 is not one of those vessels. It also has style, in the form of an aggressively raked hardtop with a profile to match. What else would you expect from a company that has created special-edition tenders for Ferrari and Jaguar? The eye-catching exterior lines are from Christian Grande, with a bluewater-ready, deep-V hull from New Zealand's Naiad studio. The boat can be outfitted with triple or quad 350 hp outboards, twin 400 hp stern-drive diesels or twin diesels up to 715 hp each, matched to Arneson Surface Drives. Add a personal touch with optional hull and tube colors and a carbon-fiber dash.

WHOM IT'S FOR: Those who like entertaining. There's a large, U-shaped aft lounge; four helm seats; and port and starboard bench seats all the way forward. Want to stay late? Try the double berth belowdecks.

PICTURE THIS: A warm morning sun pierces the horizon. You take the Sacs Strider 50 and head off to points unknown. The possibilities are endless.
