Zodiac's Adorable New Yacht Tender, the Eclipse 570
The latest model from Zodiac, the maker of rough and tough inflatable boats is the cute little Eclipse 570 yacht tender. According to Superyacht Times, the 18.7 foot boat will make its U.S. boat show debut at this year's Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The little boat ferries nine passengers around in shaded comfort with bow and main canopies. The seats are well spaced out for balance with space for two on an aft bench facing forward, a double seat on the aft end of the engine compartment lid for two facing aft, two passengers can sit on the seating area forward of the engine compartment lid and the forward and side bench seats of the bow area will hold the remaining three passengers. Other details include handholds, handles for boarding, recessed boarding steps and a swim platform. The tender has an inboard diesel engine and zips you back and forth from your yacht at a brisk 30 knots.
