LightWave 500

The LightWave 500 is the perfect tender for yachts of around 80ft and larger with comfortable seating for a driver and 9 passengers with plenty of storage and room to move around. It also doubles as a comfortable day boat with sun lounges and space. The Tender is the ideal complement and is to be supplied as standard to the Outer Reef Classic range is this size.

It is powered by a diesel boxer diesel engine coupled with a Weber waterjet so the tender can be fuelled directly from the parent yacht with no need to store petrol on board. It also packs a powerful punch with a top speed of 35kn +. It can be fitted with a wide range of options that equip her for more extensive dayboat and sports activities. The tenders are hand crafted with 100% carbon pre-preg making it light and strong.

As with the 13ft the 16ft is available fitted with either the classic LightWave collar of a half round inflatable tune giving the advantage of t rib with out the normal sacrifice in internal space.

The tender is very stable at rest and offers a smooth ride in most operating conditions.
