High Tech Marine is an Italian company that manufactures custom luxury tenders. Daily Nautica met up with the company’s CEO, Massimiliano Fontana, who showed us a tender built specifically for the sailing superyacht, Baltic 124 Canova.


The design, in following the principles and aims of High Tech Marine, was developed following the needs of its owner, paying careful attention to the efficiency of the solutions, and carefully curating the components and materials used. All phases of production are focussed on fully satisfying the client’s need, without forgetting the tiniest details, enhancing the uniqueness of each and every tender.


The custom tender for the Baltic 124 Canova has been designed like a limousine, but has a particular “V” making it very “marine”, in spite of its reduced height. It must be stored in the garage located between decks on the superyacht, and needs to be able to fit this need. First and foremost, its weight – it needs to be light enough to not weight down the boat and make it easy for towing and launching manoeuvres, while also being robust and rigid. For these reasons, it is built in carbon fibre and kevlar, reducing its weight without reducing resistance, staying under the top weight of 1500 kg and a length of 7 metres.

It has a 220 HP diesel inboard engine that can go over 40 knots, can be fuelled from the mothership, but can also act as a bunker for the boat itself, capable of transporting over 1000 litres of fuel at a time. This is possible because the tender is equipped with 2 aeronautical tanks: one, 250 litre, fixed on board, and the other, mobile, that can be added to the cockpit by removing the benches. This is a considerable advantage because it gives the yacht autonomy without the need to enter in port when, for convenience, the tender can be used for approach, as well as ensuring fuel when the blue water cannot access the pier because of its size.


The Canova tender is just an example of the exclusive range of custom and luxury tenders aimed at getting the most from performance, while guaranteeing the full satisfaction of the most demanding customers. High Tech Marine is also specialised in the manufacture of accessories in composite, carbon fibre and stainless steel parts for megayachts, using three-dimensional survey technology on board and re-elaborating the files in 3D. This system provides a high end, exclusive, quality product, made in Italy. High Tech Marine is extending and developing their production to high-end professional products, creating a custom range of fire and rescue vessels and high performance rigid dinghies for the military.
