Patented Technology for the World’s Premiere Luxury Amphibious Yacht

Nouvoyage, LLC – a designer of amphibious craft for luxury and commercial market sectors – has introduced the Limousine Tender 33, the first-of-its-kind luxury amphibious yacht. While also working on military and commercial applications of its technology, Nouvoyage has analyzed marine sectors, with particular attention to the superyacht market in order to identify a compelling application for its amphibious platform. The result is the world’s first amphibious limousine tender, capable of delivering owners and guests to both water and land destinations in ultimate luxury and style.
According to Martin Bodley, Nouvoyage’s Chief Executive Officer, Nouvoyage recognized that amphibious vehicles have historically been plagued with reliability and performance issues, usually emanating from complex mechanical systems, which also limited performance of this type of craft; ashore and afloat. The Nouvoyage patented design combines mechanical simplicity with state-of-the-art technologies drawn from leading commercial, military and racing industry advancements. Bodley insists that the new platform will not only benefit existing amphibious vehicle markets, but also open doors for many new applications and industries. For example, amphibious vehicles have until now been notoriously slow and cumbersome, in the water and out. In contrast, the Limousine Tender 33, with its full planning hull, dual waterjets and catamaran undercarriage arrangement, is designed for a maximum speed in the water of 30 KT and Bodley says it can reach 85 MPH on land.
Nouvoyage’s quantum improvements include dramatically higher speeds, increased land and water range, simple and reliable drivelines, better fuel efficiency, open water classification, climate controlled spaces, convertible roofs and windows, luxury interiors, a restroom onboard, to name but a few.
Under the hood, the vessel sports a Yanmar Marine diesel (530 hp) with a diesel electric design that delivers 130 HP to each individual wheel on land. An on board battery array stores power to give the vessel limited range in all electric mode, if necessary. Close attention was given to providing an environmental design with rugged commercial series diesel electric drivelines enabling significantly less fuel consumption.
The revolutionary design realizes considerable reliability resulting in worry-free operation and maintenance savings compared to similarly sized vehicles. While the Nouvoyage Limousine Tender 33’ is targeted for the superyacht and resort properties markets, the custom vehicle will have many bespoke design areas allowing the owner to personalize the fit out.
