Wooden Boats in Italy, which built its first Limo Tender 27 in 2020, has just launched the second Limo Tender 27 as a customized package for the owner of a 170-foot Sanlorenzo.

“This second Limo Tender 27 shares with the first only the hull lines and the construction technology,” company founder Marco Arnaboldi stated in a press release. “Everything else is totally customized to meet the requests of an owner who had very clear ideas and who received from us equally precise answers, down to the smallest detail. So speaking of a second model is not in fact accurate; each Limo Tender 27 is born with its own distinct personality, to best adapt to the owner’s requests and, consequently, to the style of the yacht it will be stowed in.”

The boat has seating for 12 guests, along with a fold-down transom that becomes a swim platform. Top speed is reportedly 37 knots, with a recommended cruising speed around 30 knots. Power is a 270 hp Mercury diesel.

“Everything was created in the Wooden Boats shipyard according to the owner’s requests, from the construction of the hull to the interior furnishings, up to the individual armrests of the seats, obviously based on our original designs,” Arnaboldi stated.

What other customizations did the owner request? The tender has 12-volt air conditioning and a sliding sunroof.
